In the United States Senate we have a former professional athlete, a comedian, the guy who wrote the single bullet theory, and a whole heck of a lot of hot air.

So why not someone with a background in professional wrestling?

No, Jesse Ventura isn’t making a comeback, but his old boss’ wife, Linda McMahon, is running for the Republican nomination for Senate in the state of Connecticut. Linda is the wife of WWE (formally the WWF until some animal group from England sued and won name right for WWF) owner Vince McMahon. She is running for the chance to take on incumbent Chris Dodd, who the GOP feel is vulnerable.

My heart skips a beat at the possibilities of a campaign involving the world of “sports entertainment”.

The only question I have is what is more real – Pro wrestling or politics?

Tough one.
