McCain and Schilling Team Up

As your grampa might say:  "Politics make strange bedfellows." Consider the teaming of John McCain and Curt Schilling.

It doesn't seem strange at first that Schilling would be out on the campaign trail shilling for McCain. J. McCain is a right-wing, law-and-order, war-hero presidential candidate and Schilling is a baseball legend: Both as American as baseball pie, right, except...

Schilling is the owner of 38 Studio (named after Schilling's number), a games development company that focuses on MMOs. Kurt is also an avid Everquest player. McCain, on the other hand, was the sponsor, in 1999, of the “21st Century Media Responsibility Act” that would amend the Cigarette Labeling Act to apply its warning label requirements to violent media products, including videogames.

We wonder if the MMO 38 Studios is producing currently is a non-violent MMO. We doubt it, somehow. We also wonder whether Schilling would be okay with a warning label on Everquest. After all, a lot of skulls get cracked (for pretend of course) in that game.
