WWE Wrestling Lady Will Be The New Chris Dodd

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Linda McMahon, who runs a friendly wrestling company out of Connecticut with her husband, Vince, will run as a Republican for Chris Dodd’s Senate seat in 2010. Whatever. Here she is in a wrestling video getting struck with a move called, “The Standing-69 Gone Wrong.” [MoJo]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

    Wow. Chris Dodd looks AMAZING in that video.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    I always tell ’em…anything goes, as long as I don’t wind up in the emergency room. Or dead.

  • Prommie

    I’m done. I cannot laugh anymore. Now all I feel is horror and revulsion.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    McMahon/Undertaker 2012!

  • shortsshortsshorts


  • Snarkalicious

    D’ya think Michelle Bachman got into politics through a similar sequence of events?

  • shadowMark

    Of the $90,000 she and her husband have contributed since 1989, 51 percent has gone to Democrats. Her top beneficiaries include Dem Mark Warner of Virginia, Obama chief of staff and former Rep. from Illinois Rahm Emanuel, and Dem-turned-Independent Joe Lieberman of Connecticut — This is the President being tricky. Linda is really his tag team partner and she’s just pretending to be Republican but at a key moment Obama will wink and then Linda will pick up the sledgehammer and smash Sarah Palin in the gut. And Stone Cold Steve Austin will come back and throw beers to the President and Michelle!

  • ManchuCandidate

    Hacksaw Jim Duggan and Ted DiBiase for Preznit/VP 2012!

    BTW, that youtube is the least gay thing about wrassling I’ve seen. Seriously. Oiled steroided muscle men in tights playing grabass. I’m just saying.

  • Way Cool Larry

    That was SO fake.

  • RoscoePColtraine

    She obvs needs to wash the pussy more often. He couldn’t even stand to put his face there with her clothes on.

  • Anonymous Office Zombie

    Um, wow. Nothing proves you’re a manly man than (pretend) pile-driving some middle-aged woman.

  • freakishlystrong

    Actually, she’s a Republitard, so that’s a standing 69 gone right.

  • KilgoreTrout_XL

    This is out of context. There’s a lot of hot foreplay before he brakes her neck at the end.

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    Well, based on the video, she is more qualified than Sarah Palin.

  • Way Cool Larry

    It’s hard to know whether Vince McMahon or Jerry Springer have done more to turn this country into a nation of dumbfucks.

  • TGY

    Was she a Republican before that man slammed her head on the floor?

  • Carl Spakler

    Just wait till Hulk-a-mania gets a hold of you….yeah, you Demint, you fuckstick

  • ragepotato

    I think that’s actually called the Atomic Teabag.

  • Godless Liberal

    Kane pretty much lost me when X-Pac took his mask.

  • dum librul

    She’ll only be senator until she loses her office in a “first blood” election match to Ned Lamont, who will in turn lose his seat, due to contract manipulation behind the scenes by Eric Bischoff, to Joe Lieberman, who will announce the unification of both senate seats from Connecticut.

    And then Congress will go on hiatus and Chris Dodd will be senator again when they return, without any mention of the previous events having ever taken place.

  • The Huffington Pogue

    She’s like Sarah Palin. Just swap her love of hockey with McMahon’s love of illegally providing anabolic steroids to pituitary cases.

  • Native of SL UT

    Ok, most of the time I don’t mind that the computer Nazis at work don’t let us watch videos but one titled “The Standing-69 Gone Wrong” means I will have to find an excuse for my boss so I can go home to view it now.

  • teebob2000

    Republican politics are as fake as pro wrestling so she should do fine.

  • JamesMichaelCurley

    You got this story from the Onion, right?

  • RoscoePColtraine

    All I gotta say is, if you’re gonna kill somebody in a quasi-sexual wrestling move, you’d better kiss them first.

  • Godless Liberal

    Also, if elected will her WWE entrance video and theme song play every time she walks into the Senate chamber?

    Note that she’s seen giving bribe money to Rudy Giuliani, for extra Republican cred.

  • masterofzen

    Here’s Linda McMahon talking to her fellow, uh, Democrats:

  • Vulpes82

    I used to watch wrestling, and I always admired one thing about Linda McMahon: her jewelry. Seriously, girl has some good taste for baubles. (What? I’m gay. Why shouldn’t I watch half-naked men in spandex write around on a mat together, all the while drooling at the CEO’s fabulous gold and sapphire necklace?)

  • Native of SL UT

    [re=413381]shadowMark[/re]: She is too infiltrate the Republican side of the chamber so that the next guy to shout out during a POTUS speech can be slammed upside the head with a folding metal chair.

  • Mista Eko

    Dear Senator Dodd,

    Pay us $100,000 and we will get you the video of her husband making out with Trish Stratus while she sits there in a wheelchair pretending to be catatonic. Your election will be reassured.

    Smart marks everywhere

  • SayItWithWookies

    Thank goodness that wrestler took steroids, because if he hadn’t, his dick would’ve been so big that she would’ve bitten it off when he slammed her head against the floor. And they say those things are bad for you.

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    [re=413394]Lionel Hutz Esq.[/re]:
    Actually, I think she’s over qualified. For a Republican that is.

  • V572625694

    This is a brilliant Republan strategery to guarantee Vinegar Joe’s reelection. They had to go pretty far to find somebody sillier than him.

  • Scarab

    Shut up! The McMahons don’t make bad decisions.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Sure, it’s all fun and games until a Republican gets dropped on her head.

    It’s all just fun and games.

  • btwbfdimho

    No wonder Obama is practicing fencing.

  • V572625694

    Please disregard my previous post, which mixed up the Nutmeg State’s senators.

  • MyBrainHurts

    Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho for President in 2012

  • dum librul

    [re=413433]V572625694[/re]: Strangly enough, it still makes sense.

  • Jim89048

    So how long would Gale Norton last in the ring with her?

  • Noonan

    [re=413383]Way Cool Larry[/re]: That was SO fake.

    It’s still real to me dammit!

  • Noonan

    [re=413445]Noonan[/re]: Close your italics, tard.

  • Dashboard_Buddha

    [re=413398]Way Cool Larry[/re]: Too true.

  • Dashboard_Buddha

    [re=413398]Way Cool Larry[/re]: Don’t forget NASCAR. Billboards for Tide and Viagra moving at 200mph AND country music. Shee-it.

  • Bronkers

    [re=413412]JamesMichaelCurley[/re]: Actually, Wonkette got it from me, who got it from a colleague who’s a native Connecticut-er; she actually worked in management at the WWF/WWE for several years, so we got a LOT of yuks out of this one.

    Thunda in the Rotunda…..

  • S.Luggo
  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=413447]Noonan[/re]: Hey that’s just like what the real Noonan does! Go figure!

  • Jim89048

    [re=413459]S.Luggo[/re]: No, I wouldn’t. Not even with someone else’s.

  • toooldtocare

    “to be the man, you gotta beat the man” Ric Flair and wooooooooooooo!

  • V572625694

    [re=413429]Scarab[/re]: Remember “He Hate Me”? Kinda makes the NFL look lame, not that it needs any help.

  • Min

    [re=413413]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: Kiss ’em, hell. There better be dinner and a show.

  • Godot

    It should be noted that the man in the video, Kane, is a huge paultard, which means that Tombstone Piledriver constitutes a partisan attack.

  • Godot

    [re=413419]Mista Eko[/re]: A known Canadian, too!

  • TheUptightMidwesterner

    She only gave Rahm money because she wanted him to wrestle for her. Oh wait, I think I would give him money to wrestle, too.

  • Pithaughn

    [re=413411]teebob2000[/re]: Zing cubed

  • problemwithcaring

    [re=413373]Prommie[/re]: And I’m so dead inside, I found your comment to be the most enjoyable.

  • MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend

    All of these posts and not ONE Jesse Ventura joke. You guys are slippin’

  • natteringnabomb

    He didn’t drop her til she swallowed.

  • Big Al1317

    [re=413398]Way Cool Larry[/re]: My friend, that is the most poignant statement I’ve read in a long, long time. My hat is off to you sir.

  • geminisunmars

    [re=413398]Way Cool Larry[/re]:The dumbfuckery was a preexisting condition. They just knew how to capitalize on it, you know, like the Repuglians do.

  • zhubajie

    [re=413387]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: Vince M. is seriously gay; she’s just protective coloration.

  • zhubajie

    [re=413578]MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend[/re]: Well, I want Jesse for Pres. I’m told he was actually OK as gov. of Minnesota.

  • Carl Spakler

    [re=413398]Way Cool Larry[/re]: The collective body of work of those two combined multiplied by number 5 still wouldn’t equal one hour of the tidal wave of dumbasitry oozing from Klansman Beck’s pie hole.

  • glamourdammerung

    Well, I hope McCain and others remember their opposition to “celebrity candidates” that they harped on last year.
