Linda McMahon has spent

pretty much $100,000,000 over two Senate elections and has lost each of them by 12 percentage points.

If this is the kind of business acumen that typical republican idiots want in charge of Congress I seriously overestimated their intelligence... And I never really credited them with having IQ's much above comfortable room temperature to begin with.

I am really really happy to see the end, I hope, of the political career of Linda fucking McMahon.

1. I heard it characterized by some Republican

pundit that she spent $100M to keep Republicans from winning the seat.

8. I think that was Joe Scar

and IMO he was half right. I don't think any puke could have beaten Richard Blumenthal in 2010 but Christopher Shays would have had a much better chance to win against Murphy than McMahon.

She didn't run to keep the pukes from winning the seat though. She ran because she has an ego the size of Texas and seriously thought she could buy the seat. The morons that are the CT Republican party were dumb enough to buy her line of shit and thankfully the rest of the State wasn't.

4. Like the ones with brain injuries?

Or the ones with physical and mental problems due to too much steroid use?

6. Owen Hart, Eddie Gurrero, Chris Benoit, Randy "the Macho Man" Savage, Scott Hall, Curt Hennig, Test,


Umaga, Andre the Giant, and probably hundereds more who died because of the neglect of the McMahons and their tolerant attitudes toward performance enhancing drugs and their failure to implement an effective drug rehab program. Too late for them now though, all the names I listed are dead

13. Agreed on all but Andre.

Andre was an acromegalyic giant and he was not a candidate for the kind of operation the Big Show had to correct the condition. He was doomed to die young in any case. Andre's drug of choice was booze. He supposedly drank six bottles of wine and a case of beer in one sitting and walked out of the restaurant as fine as could be.

Randy Savage died of "atherosclerotic heart disease" - a massive heart attack - at age 58. That does happen.

Scott Hall is still alive, if you can call what he is alive.

But your point is extremely well taken. I still miss Eddie Guerrero.

16. Yeah I forgot for a moment that Scott Hall was still alive. Did you see the ESPN 30/30 special they


did on him? It was really, really sad.

17. That was incredibly hard to watch.

There is a guy who fked up his life in every possible way. That can happen when you wind up marking out for your own character. I think that for years the poor SOB really thought he was the character he played on TV. The genuinely smart guys, like Shawn Michaels, Kurt Angle, Edge, Triple H, and Bret Hart, do not do that.

about it, she's a despicable POS and a rotten Human being. I sincerely hope I never have to look at or listen to her again.

10. She blew a significant wad of it

on these campaigns. Some estimates have the McMahons pegged at about $300 million dollars and if that's true she wasted a third of it on this.

really makes me sick. So many more important things could be helped with that money.

11. Absolutely right

If I heard right more than 2 billion dollars was spent during this election cycle. We probably could have fully educated a significant percentage of kids right through college with that much money.

14. that is some serious dedication

although if I had $300 million in assets, I could see myself doing that.

I just spent about $1,500 of my own smaller nest egg to lose a Treasurer's race by 30 points. In my county, I got thumped about as bad as Obama.

15. But why couldn't Eric Cantor follow suite?

We are gonna have to hear his smug whiny voice for how long now? Boehner you can at least laugh at...Mitch Mcconnell is one pug ugly Republican who has nothing decent to say about anyone. Eric Cantor.. well I wish he would just stub his toe on a fire plug.

19. Always nice to see the McMahons get poorer

I love wrestling. I hate what the McMahons have done to it. And, by not providing healthcare, travel expenses, time off or a proper drug policy, they're responsible for the death of numerous wrestlers.
