Here’s the Difference Between Politics As Usual and the Über-Carny

Hartford Courant columnist Rick Green complained on his blog that the Senate candidates’ debates were stultifyingly dull. See “Campaign 911! Somebody Save These Boring ‘Debates,’” Very funny.

Listing questions he wished the candidates were being asked at the debates, Green had this one for Rob Simmons: “If Linda McMahon’s record at World Wrestling Entertainment is so important to you, why can’t you at least once bring up steroid abuse in pro wrestling at a public event instead of leaving it all to nasty emails sent by your staff?”

And for Linda herself, Green suggested this: “How could you possibly not remember what your major was in college?”
