Great Moments in Media Buys: Linda McMahon vs. Sgt. 'Toys for Tots' Blumenthal

Dick Blumenthal is a nasty piece of work, the NPR-voiced Attorney General of Connecticut and "Vietnam veteran" who thought he was going to waltz into the U.S. Senate by default. But a funny thing happened on the way to the Forum: he ran into a spunky dame named Linda McMahon.

Oops.

Sgt. Toys for Tots' tenure as state AG has been marked by a relentless campaign of "lawfare" against his private-sector enemies, in the guise of "fighting" for a basket-case state with one of the highest tax burdens in the country as well as the highest utility rates, a state whose cities are a disgrace (the Mayor of Hartford, Eddie Perez, just went to jail; he's a Democrat of course). A state that boasts the highest per-capita income in the Lower 48 and yet... is broke.

In short, Blumenthal is the kind of man who would rather sue his opponents and bankrupt them than pick up a rifle or a bayonet and face them man to man, the way a real Marine would. After all, there's not much chance you're actually going to get hurt in a courtroom, other than symbolically.




In 1970, with his last deferment in jeopardy, he landed a coveted spot in the Marine Reserve, which virtually guaranteed that he would not be sent to Vietnam. He joined a unit in Washington that conducted drills and other exercises and focused on local projects, like fixing a campground and organizing a Toys for Tots drive.




Some tough guy. Some "fighter."


Unfortunately for him, he's up against a better man than he'll ever be, and she's a woman.
