VIDEO: Yup, That’s Your GOP Senate Candidate

By Debbie Schlussel

Last November, I warned you about low-class, sleazy Linda McMahon of World Wrestling Entertainment, when she announced she was planning to announce her run as a Republican for the U.S. Senate from Connecticut.  Many readers told me she didn’t have a chance, that tea partiers and conservatives were going for Peter Schiff.  Well, now, sadly, as I warned, she got the nomination.  And, as I wrote then, her elevation to star status in the GOP is a pretty good sign the GOP has put the final nail in the coffin of America’s moral highground that the party once embraced.  Uh-huh, the GOP’s Connecticut star is  the woman who in the ’80s and ’90s made her gazillions by broadcasting trash, including porn, prostitution, and simulated sex themes (all of these were WWF and WWE storylines) to young kids on TV during primetime.  Nowadays, thanks to people like her, it’s all over the place.  But, then, it was really outrageous and disgusting.


Linda & Vince McMahon: The New Conservative “Family Values”

Watch this video reminder of the “classy” McMahon family and, in particular, pay attention from 2:30 until about 3:00 for an especially “Senatorial” moment.  Yes, at least, she’s not Ted Kennedy.  But so what? He’s not the base standard.  He’s rock bottom.  And Linda McMahon ain’t so far above him on that totem pole. Yes, America is about to reward this aging bimbo–who purveyed filth and sleaze to America’s kids and helped dumb America down and define deviancy down–with a U.S. Senate seat . . . and from the “family values” GOP, no less. Congrats, dumbasses.  If Linda McMahon is the best the GOP can offer in the age of Obama, it’s desperate and useless, indeed.

As I wrote last November of McMahon and others like her:

If These Are Conservative “Heroes,” There Is No Conservatism.

Who Needs “Idiocracy’s” President Camacho (a pro Wrestler) and his “House of Representin’,” when you have the female version in real life?

Thanks, GOP chumps.

The fact that this carnival barker won and not Peter Schiff is yet another thing that makes me Rumplestiltskin-stomping mad!

The dopes in Arizona voting in that lame, old fraud John McShame…my friends…is another outrage. That big mouth daughter of hers has just had her muzzle removed and now we’ll have to hear her infinite, verbal diarrhea.

I thought we were in such trouble with President Zero and his ilk, but when we have so-called Conservatives voting this way, well, they are hardly any better! We are putting out fires with kerosine! America is burning.

Skunky on August 25, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    The GOP is a carny barker show. Where’s the conservatism, stupid? Nowhere in sight.

    The Age Of Obama will be with us for longer than we would like. It seems rank and file Republicans are just as dumbed down as the Democrats.

    So would a GOP Congress make any real changes? I think GOP congressional leaders have even more reason not to rock the boat than they did when Clinton was President.

    We live in a different country now and people have no idea how much its changed for the worse.

    And if you think we’re going back to the way it used to be before, dream on!

    People have a way of adjusting to the new status quo a lot better than is assumed by the conventional wisdom.

      The Bravo is for Skunky.

The 2008 Pres. election was McCain’s to lose….and he did.
The 2010 legislative elections are the GOP’s to lose…..and with choices like these clowns, either they will lose or their gains will be for naught.

Not Ovenready on August 26, 2010 at 12:06 am

Debbie you are so right about this one. The GOP sold it soul years ago. Linda McMahon is the epitome of what is wrong and why I will vote Libertarian or American Independent Party if the GOP isn’t worth its salt. California has so many RINOs that I just assume it. After Arnold, Queen Meg, and Carly Fiorina defeated Tom McClintock, Steve Poizner and Chuck DeVore what conservative is inspired to vote? And I will not reward these candidates with a vote for them. Thankfully we have plenty of ballot measures to keep the elections interesting.
Peter Schiff has been spot on about about the financial collapse and the sheep bought the hype of Linda McMahon. Hey Michael Bloomberg was once a Republican and the national party kept promoting him.
Debbie did you see Ben Quayle …..err Brock Landers win his Congressional seat? Dirty Scottsdale representing.

CaliforniaScreaming on August 26, 2010 at 12:46 am

Now! Now! Let’s calm down.

I know! Let’s sing a song together.

Shy Guy on August 26, 2010 at 1:08 am

It’s the elites that want the likes of “McShame” and McMahon – to say nothing of Fiorina and Whitman in California – to “win” in primaries so the fix remains in. But then again, as ‘CaliforniaScreaming’ would put it, there are far too many sheep who are registered to vote.

ConcernedPatriot on August 26, 2010 at 6:15 am

wasting your vote on a third party candidate in anger, to send a message to the GOP (in this case) almost never works, almost always siphons votes away from the party you are looking to punish, and almost always helps propell the party you are looking to defeat (in this case the Demo’s) win the race.

the big picture goal must remain to vote out the Democrat, and if that means voting with the “lesser of 2 evils” that still needs to be done even if one is pissed at some percentage of their behavior one considers not conservative enough.

our country has rarely, if ever been anything more than a 2 party system…so keep your eye on the prize before you make a kneejerk, anger vote that ultimatly only servs to help the opposition to prevail as a result…

its still strategy 202…

hill billy on August 26, 2010 at 9:03 am

Yep, just go ahead and vote Blumenthal, I think I will vote for Benero ( or however you spell the idiots name), better yet, I will not vote at all.. Let the left have the country. I think I am just about done with politics and the whole 9 yards. She will fit in real nice with Al Franken up in there. I have had all I can take with all of these people.. I am so done.

sharon on August 26, 2010 at 9:23 am

Debbie, you wrote: “Many readers told me she didn’t have a chance, that tea partiers and conservatives were going for Peter Schiff.”

This is the same thing we were hearing in 2007 re: Obamination from the same sources. I kept saying “no he’s going to win and if he carries Super Tuesday, we’re headed for Israel. ” Well, sad to say, I was right. I don’t know what’s going with Conservatives, Tea Partiers or the GOP, They’re saying all the right stuff but not doing any of it. It seems as tho’ too many people are hypnotized by the rhetoric and think if they keep thinking happy thoughts, the monster under the bed won’t get them. The monster is out from under the bed, and has his maw open wide. Wake Up and DO something. Scour the bushes, look in unlikely places, find some good, decent candidates who remember the America we grew up in and actually care.

mk750 on August 26, 2010 at 9:34 am

By the time these guys are high profile enough to win a primary, your position is lost. I’m with Sharon, I’m done but I care about many friends in the US for whom Israel isn’t an option. You have no place else to run to, do your best for your country dammit!

mk750 on August 26, 2010 at 9:39 am

sharon, giving up, quitting, withdrawing in disgust I know is so tempting in this environment where it seems like this great nation is besieged by threats both foreigh AND domestic.

I urge you to stand tall, chin up, dont give up, the consequences are too great and the country needs you more than ever to reach down and find the stamina, the resolve to stay in the fight no matter what.

we could be wearing them down just as badly and they may be us, they could also be on the verge of giving up…that is to say…when the going gets tough…thousands of left wing govt. cheese voting, dopes could very well sit on their respective fat asses and provide us with just the edge necessary to prevail in the next rounds…

quitters never win, winners never quit…keep the faith, take it one day at a time…

(in case you want to know, I am talking to myself as much as you with this little peptalk, but I know it to be true and we must stay in the fight no matter what if we wane to ultimatly make a difference and drive the nation where it needs to go)

hill billy on August 26, 2010 at 9:43 am

off topic, but briefly,
whats your opinion of the new Israeli COS Galant?

hill billy on August 26, 2010 at 9:51 am

    He’s the man G-d placed there and we will see if it’s for good or for destruction. Not that G-d is ever going to let Israel be destroyed, but prophecy has to come to it’s conclusion and Satan is under G-d’s control as it says in Job 1. That is Jewish teaching. ALL the “angels” are G-d’s to command as He sees fit. There’s also a verse in Judges which I know is problematic for Christians but it clearly says that G-d “sent an evil spirit” to destroy a king. This is what we believe happens in the unseen world. Debbie may disagree but it is Orthodox teaching too but from an Eastern perspective, not an European Yeshiva one.

    mk750 on August 26, 2010 at 6:40 pm

    Thanks for asking hill billy

    mk750 on August 26, 2010 at 6:42 pm

Thanks for the pep talk.. I will not give up hill billy, I just get so darned frustrated I swear to God I am going to have a heart attack.. I just feel like so many people do not care.

sharon on August 26, 2010 at 10:08 am

its exhasperating, I admit…but the flip side of that is imagine how much more aggrevating if would be if cartoons like the McMahons were workin it with a D on their ticket..

hill billy on August 26, 2010 at 10:32 am

Vince McMahon…Wasn’t Jim McMahon the idiot QB?

#1V: You are right. I mixed up their names. Fixed. DS

#1 Vato on August 26, 2010 at 10:50 am

I will hold my nose and vote for McMahon. Why? Because I refuse to vote for Dickie Bloomy. The Republican party in CT is horrible. Mahon’s money seduced the Rep convention delegates thus preventing a real primary race between McMahon, Simmons and Schiff. While I’m not really hot on any of these guys – I would have liked a choice.

So I’m voting for the lesser of two evils and hopefully McMahon will vote with the Republican party most of the time.

Sandy on August 26, 2010 at 11:14 am

The GOP has been an idiotfest since I was old enough to vote. Why would anybdy be suprised at this? The GOP is just another liberals in diguise party.

Farmerjohn on August 26, 2010 at 11:15 am

One more thing – hopefully there is a sea change in Connecticut and real conservatives will ‘come out of the closet’ and run.

Sandy on August 26, 2010 at 11:16 am

Since Reagan to me the GOP is just a slightly better, and only slightly, better version of the Dems.

It’s no longer about values for the GOP, it’s just power and money.

As much as I utterly loathe the Dems they at least have values and vision. It’s the completely wrong values and vision, but yet they have them.

And, no, “hill billy”, I’m not voting GOP just as an anti Dem vote. Why? Just to see “our guys” in charge….just because? Not for me. I want to vote FOR something.

Right now the GOP stands for the same thing the Dems stand for, more government. I’m not voting for that.

Jeff_W on August 26, 2010 at 11:30 am

Haha, she roshambo’d him for his job and he lost. Seriously, why do I think if she did that to Obama he wouldn’t flinch.

Matt on August 26, 2010 at 2:14 pm

Sandy, ever hear of write-in votes? When November comes around I WRITE IN PETER SCHIFF’S NAME! Besides I heard he may have his eye on Joe “Shut the internet down” Lieberman come 2012. Meantime between now and 2012…I feel so misrepresented I WANT TO LEAVE THIS WASTELAND OF A STATE CALLED CT WHICH I HAVE LIVED IN ALL OF MY 36 YEARS!

I shall now put out the first calls for


Bob Porrazzo on August 26, 2010 at 2:31 pm

Hey, Andre the Giant (were he still alive) would be a far better candidate than most of the jokers we currently have. Not saying McMahon is some kind of gem, but being a professional comedian shouldn’t necssarily mean that the person wouldn’t be an effective politician.

JSobieski on August 26, 2010 at 2:58 pm

If republican voters in conn. had any brains they would have nominated peter schiff. Right wingers are just as lazy and dumbed down as the liberals they protest.

tyler on August 26, 2010 at 3:42 pm

As a Texan I saw the same crap with the tanking of Medina. We passed up a strong pro-life, pro-states rights woman who was courageous enough to advocate nullification of and refusal to enforce a multitude of unconstitutional federal mandates; in favor of the former Gore-ite Dem turned Rep Governor Good-Hair Perry who pretends to oppose federal overreach while bragging that he “balanced” our budget. How did he do this? With Federal Stimulus funds, without which we would have an $18,000,000,000 deficit. And we’re laughing at Cali?

I am ready to see Republicans lose and lose and lose until they get the picture. I am DONE voting for the leader I am least afraid of. I am sick of my choice being between 85% and 95% fascist; and as long as we keep electing the 85% fascist to avoid the 95, our choice will never get any better.

Jessica Hughes on August 26, 2010 at 3:50 pm

I dunno, Debbie. I think you might change your mind about her if she nailed B.O. or Harry Reid in the nads like she did the guy in the video. Hey! How about a Pelosi-McMahon cat fight?

Robert Sweeney on August 26, 2010 at 6:28 pm

Could it really be worse than Chris Dodd?

P. Aaron on August 26, 2010 at 8:39 pm

Very good point P.Aron.

sharon on August 26, 2010 at 9:12 pm

I’m sick of the GOP. I re-registered when McCain was the Presidential candidate. When the NRSC backed Fiorina and undermined DeVore in CA that was another nail in the coffin. When Fiorina formed a shadow group to try and slander DeVore and suggest impropriety in his staff and denigrated his military service, that was it for me. There is NO way the GOP will get my vote. Had they backed the Reagan conservative in CA I might have given them a pass on some others. But Fiorina is toxic. She is more dangerous than Boxer. She has her buddies in the Senate, Grahamnesty, Snowe (thank you for the HC bill and Kagan and Sotomayer) and Collins to help push through RINO legislation. Boxer is just a sure vote for the Dems but can’t author any bills to get passed. Fiorina will “reach across the isle” with McCain and vote Democrat and they will help push her bills through. NO! Fiorina is NOT a win. Let Boxer keep it.

Ann on August 26, 2010 at 10:05 pm

Oh please. Instead of saying how awful she is because of her being former CEO of WWE, why not criticize her on the issues. Chances are you’ve not gone deep enough to learn about them.

Lenny on August 27, 2010 at 11:54 am

Great, thanks for posting this after the primary, when GOP voters could have picked a classy candidate like Rob Simmons. Yet again this blog brings a smile to the DNC.

T.R. on August 27, 2010 at 2:07 pm

I live in CT and worked for Peter Schiff as did countless other conservatives. It wasn’t enough because the pols picked McMahon at the convention for her money which she promised to spend on her campaign. Peter, despite being a financial guy does not have the resources the McMahons have. As for Ct it has always been a liberal state, and I have been here and working for conservatives since Barry Goldwater ran, but it’s an uphill fight because most Republicans here are moderates – as is Simmons I might add. Certainly I would rather have McMahon in the Senate than Blumenthal – any day, and I will vote for McMahon. I am not suicidal as some of the posters at this site seem to be. However I should remind one and all that there is always the possibility for surprises in politics, so we’ll just have to see what turns up. All you young people who are ready to quit politics are rather silly imho; I know because I was there once myself!
