Rick Green from the Hartford Courant describes Senate candidate Linda McMahon's un-ironic use of a developmentally challenged wrestling character named "Eugene" in her WWE ring plays:
McMahon the Senate candidate is all about a better future. Eugene is the pathetic wrestler from an old WWE story line. He gets mocked, beaten up and stuffed in a toilet, and generates loads of laughs.So where the hell is that loopy big-mouth Sarah Palin on this issue? Does Palin think it's okay for McMahon to humiliate and beat up a "developmentally challenged" character, as long as you don't call him a "retard"?
Or maybe this is just another example of that famously witty GOP "satire" we've heard so much about lately! Maybe Linda McMahon is using Eugene to demonstrate the idiocy of the left! Yeah, that's the ticket! Every time Eugene's head is stuffed in a toilet, a Tea Bagger gets his wings!
McMahon goes on with her unapologetic attempt to defend herself about her choice of characters:
"There was never any intent of WWE to make fun of anyone who is developmentally challenged in any way," McMahon told me. "It was to show how you can rise above your circumstances. He always had this quality of believing he could be anything he wanted to be. It's a soap opera. It's all a matter of taste."Ah, it's just a matter of taste! I guess I just don't have a taste for seeing "retards" getting beaten up.
McMahon's pathetic attempt to trivialize this and many other examples of WWE depravity won't fly with most voters. Connecticut voters tend to see through obvious bullshit like McMahon's. And we'll probably see a lot more of Eugene in political ads this year.
To say nothing of having slutty stripper-looking ladies putting on lesbian sex shows in front of children at a typical WWE "family" event (note: this video isn't suitable for kids; which I'm sure is more of a warning than Linda gave the parents attending her events with children in tow):
Yup, that's some great "family values" Linda is peddling there!
