Ladies and Gentlemen, your new Connecticut Republican candidate for Senate, Linda McMahon, wife of Vince McMahon and CEO of WWE:
- Involved in multiple steroid scandals.
- Delivered a “low blow” to a commentator on TV as part of his firing.
- Part of an organization that condones “simulated rape, public sex and necrophilia”.
Here’s what one of her former employees says about her:
She may look like a Sunday school teacher. Linda McMahon’s hands are as bloody as her husband’s because she is aware of every move in the ring. She has had no problem with grown men – myself included – cutting their head with a razor blade. All of a sudden, why aren’t these guys bleeding anymore? Because Linda is running for the Senate.
That’s just from her Wikipedia entry. Compared to this woman’s caravan of crazy, Dick Blumenthal’s Vietnam fudging is about as politically interesting as a county commissioner using the wrong fork at dinner.
No matter what generic Congressional ballot polling says (and it’s not looking that bad), candidates win elections. And, man, do the Republicans have some shit candidates.
Update: I love that we’re wall-to-wall Linda ads as soon as I post this. “Ready for Something Different” indeed.
