Hartford Courant Endorses Linda McMahon’s Opponent in Republican Primary

With leaps of logic that make wrestling storylines seem downright Cartesian by comparison, the Hartford Courant has published a reluctant endorsement of reluctant candidate Rob Simmons over Linda McMahon for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate. See http://www.courant.com/news/opinion/editorials/hc-ed-primary-senate-gop-0729-20100729,0,5803723.story.

Bully for Rob Simmons.

Softening the blow, the Courant calls McMahon a “hard-nosed, engaging entertainment tycoon with a captivating life story [that] is a breath of fresh air in Connecticut politics.”

Ah, but “WWE’s schlocky, off-color content is not everyone’s cup of tea, as one of her ads admits.”  She could be further damaged by “any new whiff of scandal,” the editorialist adds with exquisite abstraction.

To be fair, the Courant also questions McMahon’s “plan to help small business and create jobs that relies too heavily on tax cuts and a stripping away of regulations.”
