    Thumbs up Senate Smackdown: WWE CEO Linda McMahon steps down to run against Chris Dodd for his Senate seat

    GREENWICH, Conn. -- World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. said Wednesday that Linda McMahon has resigned as the company's chief executive to seek the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Connecticut Democrat Christopher Dodd.
    McMahon's husband, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, will assume her duties as CEO, the company said in a statement.
    Linda McMahon, 60, formally announced her candidacy Wednesday morning. She said Washington is "out of control" and Dodd has "lost his way and our trust."
    McMahon, who describes herself as "fiscally conservative," is up against three other Republicans -- former U.S. Rep. Rob Simmons, state Sen. Sam Caligiuri and former U.S. Ambassador to Ireland Tom Foley.
    Dodd plans to run for a sixth term next year.
    Linda and Vince McMahon, a professional wrestler, announcer and promoter, co-founded WWE together. Linda McMahon has served as CEO since May 1997 and served as the company's president from May 1993 through June 2000. Vince McMahon has been chairman since 1980.

    It may turn out to be an entertaining race after all
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    Are you a 3%er? If you aren't, you should be.

    Oh, absolutely. She's just what Connecticut needs right now. I would love to see her take Dodd out in a cage match.
