‘Simmons still fuming over Morning Joe snub; carries around Muchnick’s book…’

The above is the headline over an item this morning at the delightfully snarky Capitol Report (http://ctcapitolreport.com).

English translation: Neil Vigdor of the Stamford Advocate and Hearst newspapers has a long piece today on Rob Simmons, Linda McMahon’s main obstacle to the Republican nomination in this year’s U.S. Senate race in Connecticut. See http://www.stamfordadvocate.com/default/article/Simmons-lacks-in-star-power-but-touts-experience-373981.php. The article includes this passage:

Simmons said McMahon’s record when she was chief executive of World Wrestling Entertainment is fair game and doesn’t consider it to be negative to bring up issues regarding steroid abuse, violence or the premature deaths of several stars.

“I don’t call that mud-slinging,” said Simmons, who brought to the interview a book on the murder-suicide involving former WWE wrestler Chris Benoit and his wife, Nancy.

Which reminds me: The McMahons, the Levesques, and the Weickers still have not responded to my postcard invitations to attend my reading at Borders in Stamford on March 25 for CHRIS & NANCY: The True Story of the Benoit Murder-Suicide and Pro Wrestling’s Cocktail of Death. Just 32 days away!
