The pimping of the positives of the WWE the last few weeks especially with Tribute to the Troops videos with no date planned to go to the Middle East this year has been sad. Linda is down by double digits with two weeks to go and really no giant scandal on the way, its over. They can waste our time which is really what they are doing for fans outside of CT. or they can move on. Knowing Vince, I am sure we will get another Obama/Hillary/McCain thing the Monday before the election out of spite.
The really troubling part of all of this is Linda is not the worst candidate running for office, hell she maybe the most common sense one, the GOP has. They are running people who dabbled in Witchcraft, who think homosexuality is a disease and who think two cities in America are under Al Queda control, one of which doesn't exist. Linda's stance are more moderate and if she was facing a Democrat incumbent, she might have won. Yet, she is going to lose and those people may win, while maybe not the hot non-witch chick. Her WWE money helped her in the primary, but the WWE resume sealed the deal in the general election if everything holds. I will be glad when this is over.

Only if it was hosted by Robin Scherbatsky.
And apparently the Democrats have a problem with this. Via Rajah, who stole it from elsewhere:
Connecticut Democratic State party spokeswoman Kate Hansen attacked WWE on Tuesday for "Stand Up for WWE" campaign that launched The Democratic party, who are currently campaigning against Linda McMahon's bid for the United States senate, claim the campaign is an "illegal coordination" to get more people to vote for Linda McMahon. Hansen told CQ Politics:
“Linda McMahon’s $50 million attack machine now has corporate reinforcements, thanks to the ‘Stand up for WWE’ campaign launched by her husband Vince McMahon. No coincidence, it looks a lot like her political campaign... except this one is probably against the law,” reads a statement from the state party that refers to federal election law that prohibits corporations from coordinating with political campaigns.
Hansen added, "“Linda McMahon’s claim that her husband’s aggressive public relations campaign is independent of her own political campaign is unbelievable, particularly after Vince McMahon specifically cites the Senate race as the reason for the offensive."
WWE Spokesperson Robert Zimmerman defended the company's intention of the Stand Up campaign, saying, "It had absolutely nothing to do with the Linda McMahon campaign. It’s trying to correct inaccuracies that have been reported. ... The attention that’s been put on WWE by Linda’s opponents have focused media attention on the company."
Agree with this 100%. I still vividly remember watching this back in 96 and being absolutely stunned at what I was watching. Jimmy Hart running down looking absolutely petrified and the match just ending made the nWo seem like such a huge threat.
