The Democrats Are Hypocrites, Who Knew?


In response to widespread criticism from Democrats who blasted Connecticut Republican Senate candidate Linda McMahon for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) program content that she oversaw as the company’s CEO, Republican groups pointed to the time when then-Democratic Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton appeared on a WWE show to promote their presidential campaigns in 2008.

Democratic organizations took a hard line against the company Tuesday night after McMahon beat out former Congressman Rob Simmons in the state Republican primary, accusing her of many things, including profiting from peddling violence to children. But in April 2008, both Democratic presidential candidates joined Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain on “WWE RAW“, the company’s flagship program, to deliver short wrestling-themed campaign spots.

I do not understand the draw of professional wrestling.  But seriously.  Does anyone honestly believe the fake jumping, tossing, and slapping of professional wrestling is a great scourge on the country?  Of course not.  It is like complaining about demolition derbys because they might teach kids to drive poorly.

If Democrats want to complain about “peddling violence to children,” perhaps they should have words with Hollywood.  I have a feeling that will not be happening any time soon.

UPDATE: Title changed to make clear that I am talking about the hypocrisy of the party, not all who register or vote (D).
