VIDEO: Linda McMahon campaign worker received check and "you're screwed" condom; then his check bounced.


Campaign worker receives check and condom, check bounces

Linda McMahon campaign worker:

"Basically he handed me a check with a condom in it, told me I was screwed. That's the rudest gesture you can ever do to a person, it's like spitting in a person's face."

Linda must be broke after spending all those millions on her failed campaigns. Yeah, that must be it. That or she's a lower-life than many of us thought she was:

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- Two days after the election campaign workers came to News 8 claiming, they had not been paid by Linda McMahon's campaign. [...]

Twaine Don Gomes was one of the people who first complained to News 8. He was handed a check, but he says, the campaign told him they were mad that he came to News 8, so he got a little something extra in his envelope.

His little bonus was a "you're screwed" condom. How's that for parting gifts? And to add insult to injury, his check bounced.

At least the condom will help augment the biggest one-year drop in abortions in a decade.

File under "unintended consequences."

Oof! Former Connecticut GOP Rep. Christopher Shays smacked down World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Linda McMahon, a candidate in the Republican Senate primary.

I have never run against an opponent that I have respected less. Ever. And there are a lot of candidates I have run against."

"So you have a candidate who's basically given the finger to all the folks who run editorial boards. She's not willing to come before you and respond to all your questions."

"She is basically saying-- and it's a lie-- I don't use that word... I don't want use the word lie. It is a huge distortion to say she's out there meeting the public and that is the better way to do it — bullshit.”

"She has spent $10 million so far, one, trying to buy the election, er convention... She's a story teller, that's how she made her money."

"She's trying to buy an election."

And that concludes another episode of "Republicans Eating Their Own."

Minnesota Poll: Obama support warms in state and other good news you won't hear on Morning Joe


Honestly, I never thought it was possible for MIka to be more embarrassing than usual. It also looks like Ted Strickland might be tightening up the race for Gov in Ohio, and god know we're going to need him there for '12.

President Obama appears to have shored up his support in the state, a new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll has found. Obama's statewide job approval rating climbed to 51 percent in the mid-October poll. That's slightly better than he has done in recent national polls, and a 7-point jump from the 44 percent who approved of his job performance in a July Minnesota Poll.
