      Lost both times.
      In a state that is 20% registered Republican.

        but maybe you can argue that the second run had a rationale when she would have been deciding in 2011.  Coming off the big GOP midterms win, her name recognition from the first run, at the time it may have made more sense than in the end.  Still, in wrestling terms McMahon turned out to be a huge "money mark" for the waves of consultants that got hired on.

        Nothing solid to base it on, but I figured this 'political career' was Linda's payback for some past trangression(s) by Vince McMahon.  At least she didn't blow any more of the family fortune than Vince did on the XFL.

    •  Probably (1+ / 0-)

      Blaming the teabrains for ruining the GOP brand is a lot easier on her ego than believing that she herself made any mistakes.

      On the Internet, nobody knows if you're a dog... but everybody knows if you're a jackass.
