Chris Shays On Linda McMahon – “I Have Never Run Against An Opponent That I Have Respected Less”

Chris Shays, who is challenging Linda McMahon for the Republican nomination for the United States Senate Seat out of Connecticut, says he wouldn’t support Linda McMahon is she won the 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,” Shays told the New Haven Register editorial board on Friday. He also accused her of buying the nomination, and refusing to hold similar meetings with newspaper boards: “It is a huge distortion to say she is out there meeting the public and that is the better way to do it — bulls***.”

    Deny it if you want, you're all entitled to your delusions, but Linda's petty little quest for political glory is one of the main reasons why the WWE kinda sucks right now in comparison to what it could be. It's nothing but a rich person's game to her. I hope she loses, again, and then loses again, and loses every time she runs for any sort of office. Call me grumpy if you like, but she's betrayed her roots, and betrayed all of us, and her losing would be a just reward for that.

      So did Jesse the body venture betray his roots? Or the rock? By doing something different besides you know a life of wrestling? So inconsiderate of her.

    Over here in Britain, all our politicians (of all party colours and persuasions) are all lovey dovey with each other!! It’s an embarrassment!! There is no difference no more!

    At least in the USA you get things like what this story means, total difference and even hatred between parties/candidates!! It seems you actually have a party to vote for depending on your beliefs!!

    Britain was the pioneer for democracy, now we are the laughing stock. I envy USA for your politics!!

    Although, my views are that of an outsider, I could be wrong!!

      The US political system is not something you should envy, it's one of the most backwards, corrupt and narrow minded political systems in the world.

      You're also deluding yourselves if you think Britain is a pioneer of democracy, as democracy has been around for over 2,500 years and it was in Greece before Britain even existed.

    I grew up in CT. I know about Christopher Shays. Well, I know enough about him to know that this is hilarious. One liar, calling another liar, a liar. Aaah, politics.

    I have never seen or heard a politician I have respected less.
