Linda McMahon Trades Body Slams for Ballots, Wins CT Senate Primary In a big step for the GOP, but an even bigger step for “crotch kickers,” former World Wrestling Entertainment executive Linda McMahon won the Connecticut Senate primary on Tuesday.

The former CEO of the WWE, who spent around $20 million on the primary and is expected to spend another $50 million on the race, doesn’t seem to be a serious threat, according to the Democrats.

“Today the party of Bob Dole, Jack Kemp and Dick Lugar nominated a candidate who kicks men in the crotch, thinks of scenes of necrophilia as ‘entertainment,’ and runs an operation where women are forced to bark like dogs. This is what has become of the once grand old party,” said Hari Sevugan of the Democratic National Committee.

A steel cage match is set up with Democratic Attorney General Richard Blumenthal in November for Connecticut’s U.S. Senate seat.

Maybe this reader should quit his job and become a hitting coach, because this tip for a professional baseball player is pure genius.

“I said Hall was a stiff.He can`t hit the broad side of a barn!and he
stands a mile away from the plate,as though he`s afraid of getting hit
by the ball,and the pitchers strike him out on the outside corner of
the plate,because where he stands,he can`t see the pitches thrown!What
an Idiot!!I`m glad Francona took him out and put Kalish in the game!I
hope Francona now realizes what a loser Hall is and never puts him back
in another game unless someone gets hurt and he has no choice!
