Fair? Sure. That IS politics. But it doesn't make the approach any less a big steaming pile of PC pussy brigade bullshit.

If people would just stop complaining all the damn time, maybe this world wouldn't be on the brink of World War 3.

Thank God they found about 140 habitable planets so we can replace Earth 1 with Earth 2 when the time comes.

Just did a wiki-search. Is it right in saying that the election she's involved in takes place on November 2nd?

Or when he's out at WM21 only to be interupted by Muhammad Hassan - then is saved by arguably the biggest superstar the industry ever had in Hulk Hogan. These are great feel good moments.

Bad things happen to good people in all forms of entertainment to further enhance the "feel good" moment at the end of the tunnel. What they've done here is basically leave out the feel good moments and just flung in the bad parts.

They will argue that this is derogatory to disabled people the World over. I say bullshit. I say if anything, Eugene probably became a role model for a lot of people in that position in life. Eugene's character was about dreams coming true against adversity, not about humiliating someone who was being portrayed as mentally challenged.

If the WWE are smart they will get immediately on it with a video package explaining and showing that.
I'm as cynical as they come, but when Eugene wrestled HHH for the title on RAW, it almost brought a tear to my eye. The ultimate underdog almost becoming the champion, I mean, you can't get better than that in terms of telling a story.

I'm surprised that they didn't turn Eugene heel in a "ringer" gimmick.

As far as using WWE footage against Linda, the Katie Vick angle is probably the most damaging.

2010 could turn out to be a wave election for the Republicans. I think Linda has a small chance of winning. But I do emphasize small. The stars would have to be aligned the right way in order to create winning conditions for her.

Ehh... Linda is "the suck" as far as being a candidate goes (irrespective of my "Republican wave" comment above). She's no Scott Brown. And he beat a Linda McMahon-like opponent in Martha Coakley.

Vince McMahon is far better at public speaking than Linda, but the skeletons that WE KNOW ABOUT would give him no chance in hell of ever winning. Linda has no such personal scandals, hence why she is running instead of him.
