Wrestling With Linda McMahon Campaign Ads
Wait, wtf is the WWE chairman's wife doing all over my TV?

Boy, there's nothing to make you gag on a midday helping of Campbell's Chunky Soup and Metamucil like digesting 30 seconds of Linda McMahon spouting off on the virtues of privatized health care.
There I was, taking in another 60 minutes of Oprah-stewarded wisdom when, during a commercial break, a familiar face and shock of (presumably) dyed blond hair stampeded into my living room, calmly dispensing the experience of "perseverance" and other such alpha male, GOP terminology. Talk about your elephant in the rooms. (Eh? Eh?)
But alas, it was the matronly encouragement of Linda McMahon, wife of World Wrestling Entertainment Chairman (and miserably failed XFL proprietor) Vince McMahon, announcing her candidacy for Chris Dodd's current Connecticut Senatorial seat.
Wait, don't I live in New York? What the f-bomb do I care what and where this evil corporate henchwoman is running for? Oh, that's right, she and hubby have so much expendable cash that they can spread their campaign across the entire metro area. Ya know, just in case I happen to live in Greenwich, work in Manhattan and feel too tired for another re-run of "Just Shoot Me" by the time I arrive home to my ungrateful wife and malevolent children.
If you've got that much superflous campaign cash, dear Linda, and are so concerned about Obama's health care reforms, then why not pay for New Yorkers' hosptial bills instead of harrassing your state's commuters to punch your name in a ballot box?
