Seeing as Schiff has no chance... Connecticut's second best option is McMahon. Scary stuff, but at least she holds Simmons at bay.

Hey - Senator McMahon is better than Senator Blumenthal.  Scott Brown needs some company.

(Even if you don't like those two personally, electing more Republicans from New England will force the New England Dems rightward on economic policy).

I personally don't want her in there because she is exactly the wrong candidate for New England voters and for the Republican Party. She has so much baggage from her time at WWE, that Blumenthal will win by default because Connecticut voters will not want further embarrassment in senate after Dodd. Blumenthal may be liberal, but at least he won't be a joke as senator. New England Republicans better put their hopes up for Ayotte, Toomey, and winning back house seats this year. I don't see Republicans winning if McMahon is the nominee, in either of the New York senate races, or against Leahy.

McMahon has the smallest deficit in the polls. She's the only one with the good ol'fashioned moolah to beat Blumenthal. Voters don't really give a sh*t about the WWE stuff, anyway. Really.

Simmons was quite a dumbass, but regardless I am quite pleased to see that useless Moderate Hero joke get what he deserves.

100% NARAL, supported EFCA, cap-n-trade, opposed CAFTA...he certainly wasn't completely useless as a Congressman (or at least less useless than a good chunk of the Democratic conference, as far as Democratic issues go).  As a senatorial candidate?  Yeah, probz, he never really seemed to find his footing against McMahon after Dodd dropped out.

He should have been better positioned to take advantage of the Blumenthal situation with his own military creds, but just couldn't handle McMahon's advertising onslaught.  As Mr. Moderate pointed out here, McMahon is pretty much an expert at advertising a useless product, so it makes sense that she'd excel at this [he probably had a broader emphasis the "useless product"].

Oh so Simmons is like Mark Kirk. He sucks. Glad he got owned.

I see that Triple H was at McMahon's victory party last night. Is he gonna give Blumenthal the pedigree?

Yes he did.

Didn't the original television version of the marriage revolve around him drugging her or something? Ah, that was so many years ago...

If I was a member of Blumenthal's oppo research team, I'd be quite bummed about the work load... there must be so much stuff to wade through.
