Leaked Blumenthal Email Shows Campaign Soliciting Dirt
Weasel Zippers ^ | 10/23/10 | Ben Smith

Posted on 10/23/2010 5:49:21 AM PDT by Beckwith

No low is too low for a guy who falsely claimed to have served in combat during the Vietnam war…

(Politico)- A source this morning forwards on an e-mail this morning from inside Attorney General Dick Blumenthal’s campaign for Senate, in which his aides discuss tarring Linda McMahon in cooperation with Planned Parenthood.

The e-mail’s subject line is: “Worst of WWE + women photos.”

“Hey all — Grossman is looking for mysoginistic photos of women and WWE. Planned Parenthood wants to hit LM hard on it,” press staffer Marcy Stech e-mailed seven other aides to the campaign and the State Democratic Party. “What do we got?”

“Grossman” is the Democratic consultant Andrew Grossman, and the e-mail seems to raise the question of whether the campaign is coordinating with Planned Parenthood, an outside group.

A spokesman for Linda McMahon, Ed Patru, accused Blumenthal of crossing the line.

“This is clear evidence that Dick Blumenthal’s campaign is 110 percent in the gutter, orchestrating a potentially illegal coordinated campaign to dig up dirt on women for the purposes of attacking another woman. It’s utterly appalling that this is what Blumenthal’s campaign is focused on while nearly 10 percent of the state is unemployed,” he said in an e-mail.

The full e-mail is after the jump.

Subject: Worst of WWE + women photos Date:Fri, 22 Oct 2010 13:50: From: [Marcy Stech] To: Catherine Algeri, Pat McHugh, Brian Farnkoff, Dan Morrocco, Jon Donnenberg, Ty Matsdorf, Kate Hansen

Hey all — Grossman is looking for mysoginistic photos of women and WWE. Planned Parenthood wants to hit LM hard on it.

What do we got?

Isn’t Linda McMahon Pro-Choice?

Why would Planned Parenthood want to hit a Pro-Choice woman?

I’d rather see WWE women than Planned Parenthood women any day of the week.

For the same reason NPR would fire a liberal journalist.

Blumenthal explains how you create a job.

“crossing the line”
Everything the dems do is crossing the line of right and wrong.

Doesn’t appear as if Marcy’s much of a speller.

Also, either Marcy is black, or that line is a racial slur.

Hey speaking of the WWE how much would you pay to see the Wookie in a cage match with Little Dick. I’m pretty sure the Wookie would pin his ass even with all of that Vietnam battle experience he has.

Thanks. Apparently Basket Weaving 101 was too tough, so she chose Communications, Advertising, and Justice and Peace Studies (whatever the hell the latter is).

By the way, as an advertising exec I can tell you that whatever they taught her about advertising in college was a waste of Mommy’s and Daddy’s money. All that you need to learn about the subject can be found in David Ogilvy’s “Confessions of an Advertising Man.” All else is superfluous (unless you want to write direct response copy, then read Claude Hopkins’ “Scientific Advertising”).

Thanks for the input. I just went to Amazon.com and ordered “Confessions of an Advertising Man.”

Thanks again.

My pleasure. I think you will find it not only instructive, but thoroughly enjoyable. It helped launch my career, and I have been very blessed in it. By the way, once you finish Confessions, if you wish to learn more about the gifted Mr. Ogilvy, you might want to grab The King of Madison Avenue by former O&M chairman Kenneth Roman. It's a fascinating bio.

“Isn’t Linda McMahon Pro-Choice?

Why would Planned Parenthood want to hit a Pro-Choice woman?”

Why? Linda McMahon is running on the Republican line. That automatically makes her a target.
