Accusing your opponent of being a flip-flopper? Why, that’s practically Politics 101.
But calling out a challenger for playing Halo and blogging? Must be a sign of the times.
In Maricopa County, Arizona, Republican incumbent Fulton Brock has rolled out those allegations and more by way of slinging mud at his Democratic challenger, Ed Hermes (left). Both men are vying for the job of county supervisor.
As Joystiq reports, a campaign mailing sent out by Fulton uses the Halo referenced in an attempt to portray Hermes as young and inexperienced:
Skilled player of popular video game Halo. Hermes was quoted in the ASU student newspaper as saying, "I am addicted to Halo and play almost every night."
The anti-Hermes ad also accuses the Democrat of being a student mascot at football games as well as a blogger and a video gamer.
