Wonder what you would find if you frisked Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton during their 2008 presidential campaigns?

Answer: They jumped on a World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) program to help spread their message.

Of course… That was okay back then for Democratic candidates to embrace the WWE for their own political gain, but now that WWE chief Linda McMahon has won the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate seat in Connecticut, it’s a different story:

In response to widespread criticism from Democrats who blasted Connecticut Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) program content that she oversaw as the company’s CEO, Republican groups pointed to the time when then-Democratic Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton appeared on a WWE show to promote their presidential campaigns in 2008.

Democratic organizations took a hard line against the company Tuesday night after McMahon beat out former Congressman Rob Simmons in the state Republican primary, accusing her of many things, including profiting from peddling violence to children.


On Tuesday, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman Eric Schultz called WWE programming “violent, sexually explicit material that glorified the exploitation of women, and the mentally disabled.” Democratic National Committee spokesman Hari Sevugan accused the GOP of nominating “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,” referring to sketches that appeared in WWE programming during McMahon’s tenure as CEO.

Republicans fired back, asking why Democrats did not voice similar concerns about McMahon’s entertainment company when their candidates agreed to appear on “WWE RAW” two years earlier.

Another example of liberal hypocrisy… I wonder if the Democrats are becoming more and more desperate as the fall election approaches? That should be a quick and simple “Yes!”
