I hope she beats the crap out of the dim... and Triple H would be a great CoS.
If the Dems have to spend big money to defend this seat, which should be a safe one for them, it’ll be a sign that they are truly in trouble nationally. This will be an interesting bellwether to watch.
As a CT resident, I got a front row seat to all the FUN that will take place.
if she win’s maybe she’ll ask Obama “do you smell what the RINO is cooking” she is way better then the lib.
They'll view her as an avenging Chicadora or something!
Her “inside track” will be with independent suburban women.
If she works hard enough she can get their vote and body slam Blumenthal.
I think this is a bellwether race where November is concerned.
Blumenthal is Mr. Bash-the-Banks, which is rapidly becoming the one card left for the Dimocrats to play.
Her first ad, the ad no one in the state could avoid was so directed at them, I thought it was an attack ad on her and clicked it off the first few times.
It was brilliant. For those not in CT, two well attired women in a nice car were discussing Linda. One mentioned WWE and said "Its not my cup of tea". The other wrinkled her perky little nose and said, "mine neither".
Then the first asked with a smirk, "Think she will shake things up in Washington?"
"Oh yeah" said they other and they both laughed.
But Americans love Vietnam veterans. What happened? (sarc off)
Blumenthal is awful on TV. Comes across as a reptile.
"He is cruel. He is a cruel man".
And that is exactly it. He gets off on hurting people. I hope people in other states pay attention to what Connecticut could send to the U.S. Senate.
Is this the Blumenthal that Glenn Beck utterly destroyed in an interview?
