Can you watch Linda McMahon's ad without thinking about steroid filled bodies flying around the ring?
She made her fortune by locking arms with her calculatedly lowbrow wrestler husband Vince McMahon. Together they made millions by converting World Wrestling Enterprises into a font of sexually-charged, violence-tainted, “entertainment” supposedly about wrestling. After all, would you want your children watching it?
Her Democratic opponent, Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, has some self-created vulnerabilities of his own. He has been forced to correct a statement that he served “in” Vietnam as a Marine reserve, to say that he served “during” the Vietnam War.
Her business background gives the media lots of reason to after her - including their favorite - she's not a leftist uncomfortable with capitalism.
