Linda McMahon and the WWE vs Democrats: living in a glass house
Every day Linda McMahon gets closer to the sitting in the Connecticut Senate driver’s seat and here’s thee perfect example. The Dumbocrats feel the heat and are running scared. They should be.
The Democrats have been hammering away on Mrs McMahon’s WWE empire for weeks, and the main stream media has dutifully followed suit never letting the chance to go by without mentioning “wraslin'”. Disgusting they called it. But that’s now … this was then. Hat tip to Hot Air.
Delicious irony. Despite this, the Daily Caller reports … this:
On Tuesday, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman Eric Schultz called WWE programming “violent, sexually explicit material that glorified the exploitation of women, and the mentally disabled.” Democratic National Committee spokesman Hari Sevugan accused the GOP of nominating “a candidate who kicks men in the crotch, thinks of scenes of necrophilia as ‘entertainment,’ and runs an operation where women are forced to bark like dogs,” referring to sketches that appeared in WWE programming during McMahon’s tenure as CEO.
And don’t you buy for one second the Dumbocrats aren’t taking a whack at the whole wrestling crowd … which is what they claimed today in the Daily Caller:
When asked about whether it was appropriate for Democratic candidates to appear on WWE programs, a spokesman for the DNC said they were not attacking professional wrestling, but McMahon’s handling of her company.
Busted. They and the media never miss an opportunity to put down her supporters as gap toothed, bible thumping, shotgun toting, PBR swilling, sister kissing, cousin marrying Neanderthals. Remember you Waterbury folks?
Well be careful when you decide to “wrastle” in a glass house. Your arguments get shattered.
“It is hypocritical,” said Chris Healy, chairman of the Connecticut Republican Party. “They were more than eager to enlist WWE when it served their purposes and when it doesn’t, they trash them.”
“They are empty attacks,” said National Republican Senatorial Committee spokesman Amber Marchand. “They are trying to draw attention away from the fact that [Democratic Senate candidate Richard] Blumenthal is a weak candidate.”
Here’s the deal. As I said weeks ago, at a time when unemployment is soaring, the economy sinking and our debt and our children’s indebtedness growing … if this is the best Blumy can do … smack down!
Editors note: If you don’t know what PBR is, my guess is Fineman and Todd were not talking about you.
