Dodd is eminently beatable, but this doesn't seem to be the right candidate for the situation. And, I don't think it is the stigma of wrestling that would be her undoing. I think it would be the skeletons in the closet of Vince and Vince's mouth that would be her downfall. If she is a serious candidate with a chance to win in October of '10, the official mouthpiece of the Democratic Party (henceforth to be referred to as MSNBC) would bring out every mistress Vince has had and every person who has an ax to grind with him. You would hope they put a number of them on 7 second delay, but it is cable, and they can always just pull one off the air and grab any of a number from the bullpen. Now, that might not derail her completely, but the reaction that it would cause from Vince would be the undoing (see Denver Nuggets scenario).
According to campaign 'equal-time' laws, I actually think WWE would be prohibited from airing any outward political support to Linda on any of their programming. That is, unless they do the same to Chris Dodd --- and Vince would probably be unable to resist having DX telestrate 'I love cocks' over Dodd's mouth while he speaks.
Connecticut Ws can help me out here, I thought Rob Simmons had the Republican senate nomination against Dodd in '10 all but sewn up. Would Linda even have a chance in a primary?
Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

It was just completely coincidental Federal Election Commissioners that in the months prior to the election that World Wrestling Entertainment debuted a character named Senator Linda, who was the most virtuous babyface character in television history. Senator Linda was so vital, she needed to participate, or at the very least be mentioned repeatedly, in every segment of our programming. And, those signs that sprouted up in arenas demonstrated how beloved Senator Linda was to a our fan base (or at the very least to the peons who planted the signs. Remember to delete this secretary from the letter). Also, it was another coincidence that Senator Linda left our programming the day after the election.

I was wondering when intern tryouts are being held this year?
No, no nononononononono... Now is NOT the time to be throwing things against the wall to see what sticks. New champions aren't going to push ratings everywhere, and just throwing the title on somebody else reeks of despiration.
