Funny Coincidence About Linda McMahon’s Political Rivals

Matt Boone

Scott Douglas sent along the following:

I was just skimming through an article on Linda McMahon running for Senate, and found something somewhat interesting. Throughout the article, they mainly referred to people by their last names.  At first, I thought I was reading a wrestling report, and not a political article, due to some of the names.  For example, McMahon’s GOP rivals Foley & Simmons – I couldn’t help but instantly think of Mick & Ron (although it is Rob Simmons, so that’s close). And then the Demographic Senatorial Campaign Committe spokesman’s name is Schultz (but obviously not Dr. David D – it’s Eric).

And perhaps the most interesting one of them all is Simmons’ spokesperson – none other than Jim Barnett!  No, not that Jim Barnett, but still rather amusing to a wrestling fan, I would think.  Of course, the non-wrestling fan would not pick up on these subtleties.  Just thought you guys might find that somewhat entertaining.
