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

  2. 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!

    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.

  4. RoscoePColtraine

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

  5. Anonymous Office Zombie

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

  6. 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.

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. RoscoePColtraine

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

  11. 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?)

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. Monsieur Grumpe

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

  16. 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.

  17. Scarab

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

  18. Lascauxcaveman

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

    It’s all just fun and games.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…..

  21. V572625694

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

  22. 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.

  23. problemwithcaring

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

  24. 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.

  25. 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.

  26. zhubajie

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

  27. 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.

  28. glamourdammerung

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