Vicevich Rant: You want steroids? I’ll give you steroids.

Something new. The rant goes to video and the Radioviceonline blog. Now you’ll never miss it. Today’s rant … well the title says it all. Transcript below.


Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon took calls on my show today and the board lit up … with Blumenthal shills. Call after call on the WWE and steroids. Why I have talked about Linda for months now … no calls on that.

Well if that’s the best Blumy’s buddies have got … you will lose in November. You will lose because Linda McMahon is talking issues, against raising taxes, against government over spending  … for shrinking the size of government, for unleashing the power of small business.

Steroids … you want steroids? How’s this … Obama’s budgets have set record deficits two years in a row of over a trillion dollars each. While private sector jobs have shrunk by 8 million jobs … federal jobs have increased 10% in the last two years … and we are staring down the barrel of the biggest tax increase in history.

Yet not one call on that kind of federal steroid. Not one mom who’s worried about those federal steroids eventually robbing her children of precious discretionary income.

If that’s the best the left has … the Dems will lost in November, which they should anyway because of the tax and spend philosophy that’s quickly bankrupting America.

And consider this … even if you are one of millions that don’t pay taxes or won’t be affected … rest easy … if these guys continue to attack the job creators in this country … you kids will never be in the money either … A government on steroids will see to that.

How come no Mom’s calling on those steroids? Hmmmmm? Comments welcome.

    I'm so sorry, I missed this part of your show today, but thrilled that it is now a post on your blog. Keep up the rants and keep posting them! I haven't met Linda in person yet, but am looking forward to it Sept. 23 at a Conservative Women Forum. She is 95% confirmed to be appearing with Janet Peckinpaugh. We need to drain the Swamp. We also don't need to add Blumie to the Senate. thanks,

    Usually, everybody on both sides has no problem telling WHAT they are going to do. It's the HOW they are going to do it that is the problem!

    Happy to see this new additon. Even after your interview with Ms. McMahon Jim, you had given a GREAT RANT also, including crickets sounds. If this is the Democratic response, I too sense that Richard Blumenthal is REALLY in trouble even in this very deep blue state.

    The problem, sammy, is that Blumenthal won't even tell the voters what he will do, much less, how he will do it.  He needs to come out of hiding and say something…anything.

    Again – who considers telling facts – the truth – to be "negative" campaigning???  Idiots with their heads in the great big liberal sky, that's who.  The next person who complains about the negative ads will be asked to explain how they consider telling the truth as negative?


    I'm still waiting for some good journalist to do his/her job and investigate the health plans and drug policies of the following industries:  racing, rodeo, circus, hollywood stunt men, players in any contact sport (esp. football), musicians, dancers, boxing, wrestling (other than wwe)… can come up with several others.

    What-complaining about negative"???

    First thing Linda did was hire a former Rove staffer and paid him $1 million to dig up dirt, any dirt about Blumenthal-then went right to the NYT with his story including a clip of a speech-not the whole speech, just a damaging clip.

    Jim look on the bright side, at least they only called in about steroids to WTIC yesterday. Somebody called in a bomb threat against Linda's fundraiser in Madison yesterday.

    Seems like, SOS, we're not seeing the same ads. Nevertheless, Ms. McMahon has the usual platitudes as HOW she will accomplish WHAT she is claiming she will do. How is she going to do anything in the US Senate! Same for Blumenthal. At least he has some track record in public life.

  10. chris-os on September 14, 2010 at 4:39 am

    I watched the 1st debate she was in with Simmons and Schiff, SOS. I was astounded. When any question came up-she read from a paper she had on her podium…'we have to reduce spending, blah blah…we have to create jobs, blah blah.."-she didn't answer 1 question-just kept to her talking points that was written out for her.

    I sat there yelling at the moderator…"tell her to answer the question!"!

    If she is qualified to run for the US senate-stand by for my announcement for my candidacy for president.

    While I don't live in CT, but I get CT television.  In a general sense, when did what a pol promised to do or the quality of their resumes have all that much to do with getting elected?  Rambo Blumenthal can't sue anyone in Congress.  And they really don't debate in Congress, just rant and rave and negotiate for votes with each other.


    Bottom line: all they can do is vote and modify legislation from the House.  We need independence, real world experience and clear thinking.  Rambo comes up a bit short on that list.

    Independence, as in voting with that combination of heart/head/conviction and constituent interest without regard to party, is in pathetically short supply, for a variety of reasons. Party machines, as in $$$, back mostly those that stay in line with the party. Also, when one steps out of line they are either skewered by their own (RINO!!!!) or pointed out by the other party as evidence that their party is falling apart, see the blogpost "Heard on the Campaign Trail".

    Until we begin to respect and celebrate independence in our politicians, it will remain in short supply.

  13. Linda Mae on September 14, 2010 at 7:04 pm

    Well, you can rewrite the talking points or you can spend some time reading Linda's brochures in which she explains the difference between her position on the issues and those of blumie.  But if you did, then you'd have to admit she is right on so many issues.  Like the fact she includes the citation source – so those who doubt can check themselves.  She will do well in the Senate – she is not a lawyer who thinks in billable hours.  Obama and his crew have NO concept of economics – they've never worked in the real world like the rest of us.
