Steel Cage Match: Dodd vs. McMahon

Posted by evankessler on September 16, 2009

Over the last several months the debate over healthcare has made congress look like it was embroiled in a WWE Battle Royale.  Barack Obama’s big speech made us feel like he was the last man standing in the ring, just before Joe Wilson made it apparent that he and a few other Republicans were still hanging onto the top rope and about to charge directly at the president’s bill with a foreign object in hand and a folding chair slung over their shoulders. All wrestling metaphors aside, it looks like another Royal Rumble may be coming to the Connecticut political arena just in time for the 2010 election!

Linda McMahon, CEO of the WWE and wife of its Chairman Vince McMahon, has announced her intentions to run for the Republican nomination for Connecticut Senatorial Seat currently occupied by “Kid Dynamite” Chris Dodd. Instead of the engaging in the typical electoral process, “The Moderate Mawler” is aiming at a steel cage ladder match lasting three falls.  Should Ms. McMahon take the Senatorial Championship, CSPAN is expected to become a lot more interesting as it will feature frequent filibusters from the likes of Macho Man Randy Savage and The Rock– not to mention every Monday Night you’ll be able to catch CSPAN Raw where government disputes are settled in the ring!  Now that’s what I call Government!
