Should Celebrities Become Political Figures

11 Aug

Monday night I tuned into Night Line, as I do every week night. While watching Night Line, I tuned into an interview with Linda McMahon.

1st there was Arnold Schwarzenegger; the Terminator getting the job title of becoming the 38th Governor of California. Now there is a lady named Linda McMahon, she is running for the Senate seat in Connecticut. You may have heard of Linda McMahon. In case you haven’t, she is the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, better known as WWE and Vince McMahon’s wife. I had never heard of Linda McMahon until 8/9/10. But I feel like I know a little bit about her now.
I saw clips during McMahon’s interview with Bill Weir, she was kicking some wrestler in the crotch. In another clip she was slammed by Stone Cold Steve Austin. Yeah sure she resigned as CEO of WWE, seeking no outside endorsements outside of Connecticut, and is funding her Senate campaign with up to 50 million dollars of her own money. But does she belong in the Senate? I personally found Mrs. McMahon to look uncomfortable in clothing that relates to a professional look. She just looks out of place to me. The green button up shirt that was not quite a blazer and the khaki skirt, the outfit was sort of okay. But by no means was it okay for the interview on national television. Especially if you are running for the Senate. Not seeking people to endorse her other then the people of Connecticut is fine by me, but she should have at least sought out a person to help her with her wardrobe. I hope her policies are better then those from WWE. Wrestlers had no insurance, no pension plans, and McMahon did not implement any steroid testing of her wrestlers. I don’t know McMahon, but I don’t think the Senate will be right for her.
In spite of my feelings, some how she won. On 8/10/10 Linda McMahon became the primary republican candidate. Talk about wow! Yet another celebrity with the possibility of being a politician figure.
