Oh, Dear: Blumenthal Does Know How To Create Jobs

And he's created them -- through his lawsuits.

"Businesses welcome them."

Linda McMahon, your next commercial is waiting.

Thanks to Laura "Shanty Trollop" W.

Add-on from lauraw: I recently saw Linda McMahon at a small gathering in a private home (maybe two dozen people there). She said that she will take no salary or bennies if she is elected. And that the congresscritters should have to live under the same health care system and laws that they enact for others, though she knows that is unlikely to occur simply because of how things work there.
And that if she is lucky enough to win them, she pledges she will only serve two terms.

We shall see, right?

I brought up to a campaign worker that she isn't bringing any attention to all the nasty stuff Blumenthal has done over his career, the people he has ruined, the way he oversteps his authority, and shouldn't Linda say something about that.
Got a pained look, and a 'no, I don't think she will be going there' kind of response.

It makes sense. She could so, so easily be tarred as that mean nasty wrestler lady.

Every question she responded to was pitch-perfect tea party conservatism, but pragmatic, too. She interrupted herself at times to address some of the unrealistic wishlist items, and why they were extremely unlikely to happen, and what kind of workarounds she would like to push. If she's a liar and a panderer she is amazing at it.

One thing I don't like about her campaign is the 'groups' thing. There's a Latinos for Linda group. One of the other ladies at the meet handed out pink 'Women for Linda' pins to all us broads.

Feh. I understand why she has to do that, especially in CT, and especially when she's peeling off so many Dems. That's their language. They're used to voting with their ethnicity and their reproductive organs.
