WWE Faithful Vote For The Bombshells (Linda McMahon, CT)
New Haven Independent ^ | 10/31/2010 | Thomas MacMillan

They roared as “Triple H” — U.S. Senate hopeful Linda McMahon’s son-in-law — pounded his opponent in the ring. They cheered as her husband Vince urged them to wear their World Wrestling Entertainment T-shirts to the polls on Tuesday. They whooped and hollered for the busty “Divas” who stomped their rival hussies. Then the diehards of World Wrestling nation filed out of the arena—some of them, at least, promising to vote for the candidate herself on Tuesday.

The wrasslin’ and unstated politickin’ took center stage Saturday, just three days before Election Day, at the Hartford XL Center.

Saturday’s World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) “Fan Appreciation Day” was not billed as a political rally. But some of the fans being appreciated made no distinction between Linda McMahon the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate—who faces Democrat Richard Blumenthal in the electoral ring Tuesday—and Linda McMahon the celebrity former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment.

At 3 p.m, thousands of people piled into the arena for two and a half hours of simulated combat between the stars of WWE, including Triple H, McMahon’s son-in-law. The event was billed as a special reduced-price wrestling show for WWE’s loyal followers...

New Havener Brandon Stovall (center background in photo) bought a $20 autographed picture of wrestler Big Show for 9-year-old Julius Dixon (center foreground). He said he hadn’t decided whom he was going to vote for on Tuesday. Informed that McMahon is running for U.S. Senate, he made his mind up on the spot. “She has my support then,” he said. “Just because I’ve been a fan of wrestling all my life. If she’s on the ballot, I’ll vote for her.”

Linda should have EMBRACED the WWE and its actors from the get go. Instead she hid from her wrestling empire and cowered while the DSCC slammed her on steroids and deaths. Big mistake. Too late now, she is done.

Vince and Her built a huge business that employees a LOT of people ,While her childish nobody opponent is not fit to sweep the floor. She needs to run those videos of her outfit in Iraq with the troops a number of times.

Nah. He was there for Hines (Rep.) and Malloy (Gov), who are in danger, as is Chris Murphy (Rep.).
