    Will a dead wrestler cost Linda McMahon a Senate seat? - The Week

    Linda McMahon has been accused of "turning a blind eye to rampant drug use" before, says Avi Zenilman at New York magazine, but up to now she has convinced voters that "her association with the ball-kicking, roid-raging world of the WWE" was a non-issue. Now she has "a much bigger political problem" — a grieving dad who's calling her a liar. With this kind of negative publicity, maybe McMahon's WWE past will "kneecap her campaign," after all.

    Actually, I was hoping the live ones and their fan base would be bad enough to make her political aspirations seem cheesy. So much for THAT idea...

    She's in a strange place.

    She wants to run as a successful business owner, which she is. The problem is that her business is built on rampant drug usage and outrageous antics.

    Not to mention flagrant misogyny.

    Yeah. There's that too.

    On the other hand, if she can use the WWE to bring out voters that normally wouldn't vote, more power to her.

    The outrageous antics are fine. That'll help her in Congress.

    The steroid use is another issue.
