I wasn’t going to mention this when the insult was made, because it didn’t really seem to be newsworthy. Michael Goldfarb, a Republican blogging at McCain’s official site, made a nasty comment about liberals, but dragged D&D players into the mix:

It may be typical of the pro-Obama Dungeons & Dragons crowd to disparage a fellow countryman’s memory of war from the comfort of mom’s basement, but most Americans have the humility and gratitude to respect and learn from the memories of men who suffered on behalf of others.

Who cares? Some people took umbrage at how D&D got lumped into the insult, but I didn’t think anyone would take this seriously. Well, now Michael has taken the trouble to apologize for it, and in a gamer-friendly style:

If my comments caused any harm or hurt to the hard working Americans who play Dungeons & Dragons, I apologize. This campaign is committed to increasing the strength, constitution, dexterity, intelligence, wisdom, and charisma scores of every American.

Good grief.
