The synergy of Paultards and video game geeks

Just gonna reprint this story, because there are too many available jokes for me to settle on just one:

Presidential hopeful Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), whose legion of online supporters have besieged internet polls, lofted a blimp and helped their man notch a record-setting $6 million in donations in a single day, has rallied another group of die-hard backers to his ranks:

Gnomes. And dwarves. And possibly even night elves -- because the world of political activism has hit the World of Warcraft.

On New Years Day, Paul-backing devotees of the online multiplayer game are planning a march through WoW's sprawling virtual universe to show support their candidate. Participants will be represented by one of an array of mythical avatars that populate the fantasy-themed game, in which players take on adventures and duel against rival characters.
