And Amy Bishop Played Dungeons & Dragons, Too

As if she needed to pin the weirdness meter any harder to the right.

Note the media isn't discussing this woman's obsessive love of Barack Obama.

That's not weird to them, after all.

But they're going to get that weird headline in one way or another.

Accused campus killer Amy Bishop was a devotee of Dungeons & Dragons - just like Michael “Mucko” McDermott, the lone gunman behind the devastating workplace killings at Edgewater Technology in Wakefield in 2000.

Bishop, now a University of Alabama professor, and her husband James Anderson met and fell in love in a Dungeons & Dragons club while biology students at Northeastern University in the early 1980s, and were heavily into the fantasy role-playing board game, a source told the Herald.

“They even acted this crap out,” the source said.

The media's only got one Narrative and it's not going to step on that storyline.

Seriously -- if the shooter were a political conservative, you think we'd be hearing about D&D? No baby -- we'd be hearing about Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly.

All. Day. Long.
