in it she tells me she's running because she's gone through the SAME hardships you and i have gone through. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. wonder how MY bank balance compares to HER bank balance.
can i afford to pop in millions and millions and millions of my OWN money to a campaign if i decided to run for office?
did i chair a multi multi multi million dollar company?
hmmmmmmmmmmm linda 'i think it's ok for women to get the shite kicked out of 'em' mcmahon, you like christine o'donnell are NOT JUST LIKE ME. i thank the great goddess for that
morning (as in VERY early) and night. if i'm walking, i'm not unsafe or reckless, don't get me wrong. BUT, i feel safe (or FELT safe) in this neighborhood. i'm usually out earlier than when this happened, but still, i always felt safe. at 5, 6 and 7 am, there are TONS of joggers and walkers and dog walkers and people on bicycles. it's that kind of neighborhood. heck, i went to morley (elementary school) which is in that hood. it's MY hood
to everyone male and female who do outdoor activities alone, GET A LITTLE TINY CANISTER OF PEPPER SPRAY at the very least. the BEST idea is to go out with a friend though.
it can't happen here. well YES, this proves it CAN

you're FUCKING WRONG. violence against and abuse of women is NOT entertainment. it never was and it never should be. she promoted it. she's backing off now, but the damage is done (so to speak). please do NOT vote for linda mcmahon. a vote for her is a slap in the face to women
do you see what you're turning out? when young people (men and women, boys and girls) think women getting the shite kicked out of them (figuratively as well as literally) is ENTERTAINMENT
It is mind-boggling that the voters of Connecticut would even consider electing the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment to high political office -- until you realize what an abysmal job the news media have done of holding her accountable for the actual product she produced.
Make no mistake about it: until Linda McMahon decided to run as a Republican for the United States Senate, she was one-half of one of the most culturally destructive, and blatantly misogynistic, business partnerships in the history of popular entertainment. Under Linda and her husband Vince McMahon's leadership, the WWE has featured some of the most brutal, violent and hateful depictions of women in all of media culture over the past twenty years.But incredibly, the rampant misogyny of McMahon's WWE has gotten scant coverage during this fall's U.S. senate campaign in Connecticut..................
