Make-Believe Vietnam Vet Still Beating Real-Life Professional Wrestling Mogul in Connecticut Senate Race
A new poll in Connecticut seems to show that voters there are not concerned with a candidate pretending to serve in a war that he never served in, just so long as he's not the former CEO of the largest professional wrestling league in the world who fires employees by kicking them in the dick on national television.
Because, hey, every state has its limits…
[A] new poll from Quinnipiac University shows [Richard] Blumenthal is still dominating the race for Senate in the wake of a brutal New York Times story that accused him of lying about his military record.
The poll, one of the most respected in Connecticut politics, shows Blumenthal ahead of likely Republican nominee Linda McMahon by a whopping 25 points. He leads the race by a margin of 56-31. That's down somewhat from the astronomical 61-28 lead Blumenthal had in the March Q poll, but — as they say in the business — anything over 20 is a good day.
Tell that to my Spanish-American war buddies who died over there in Iwo Jima fighting for the liberation of Catalonia. You think they'd say anything over 20 is a good day? Ha! They ate the number 20 for breakfast. And they were thankful for it!
Think about that.
