And the life long carnival barker and snake oil saleswoman shouldn't be? Her company's bury Ted Turner's wrestling company led to the premature death of many wrestlers.

Wrestling is a tough business. It is also a rewarding business. People find a way to get around what the norm is to succeed. This is human nature. The wrestling life is one on the road. The meteoric rise of the major companies a couple of decades ago also included the things we do not like to talk about. They have tried to eliminate it. Whether they were/are slow about it is important compared to what? I loved baseball. The sport of records. The sport where at one time you could sit in a ballpark for a couple of bucks, bring food in and talk smack with someone else and lose a few hours. In the last couple of decades, the traditional records were smashed. You don't even talk about records anymore. Baseball went from traditional to year to year. And it went from number one to maybe number two if lucky. Wrestling gives people of all backgrounds and economic status an expression of what life is for us all. It is less politically correct then the rest of the entertainment industry. And it is refreshing. Their wrestling stable reflects it. Benoit knew what he was doing. His own personality not withstanding. He could have left. Become a regular guy at less pressure. For Mrs. McMahon, I would have preferred the tea party person. but if she loses, I hope Vince runs a long segment on Blumenthal as a character on his show. And even a partial on the woman who said you can not wear a shirt. Destroy Blumenthal! After all, that is what he was doing.

Wrestling is not a bona fide sport, it's a farce, a carnival, a pure nonsensical show. The use of life-threatening steriod abuse is rampant and the McMahon's have condoned it. It's far from a "refreshing" type of entertainment, it's a bad joke, sort of like this whole damn campaign.

I am in total agreement with your comment.

I know it will never happen, but maybe someday the electorate will set higher standards for their candidates. It's not just in CT, it's everywhere.
