Wrestling is as fake as conservative outrage.

Wingnuts say how much they hate ‘political correctness’, usually a term applied to situations in which an individual or group objects to how it’s treated or spoken of. But should a conservative perceive him or herself or one its many ironically collective entities the subject of criticism or ridicule, it responds with the same cries of ‘foul’ they blame others for doing.

I just find it highly amusing that the WWE is doing this on the heels of Linda McMahon’s US Senate run last year, where she was very much in the camp of the Tea Partiers, and the family has a fairly close friendship with lunatic birther/attention-seeker Donald Trump.

Looks like this might temper the WWE’s reaction:

Jack Swagger was allegedly “driving under the influence” at the time of his speeding arrest Tuesday night after the Smackdown TV taping in Biloxi, Mississippi. Police also allege that Swagger was in possession of marijuana.

According to TMZ, Swagger was charged with DUI, marijuana possession, and speeding, which are all considered misdemeanors. Swagger was released by the local Sheriff’s department following the arrest; no word yet on whether a court date has been scheduled.

Not sure what the whiny teabaggers are whining about. Pro wrestling, particularly the WWE brand, has been so stock full of gingoistic American Firsters for so many years, this new character is pretty much indistinguishable from the rest of them.

I doubt many Tea Partiers watch wrestling anyway.

Are Malkin and her ilk sure the Jack Swagger character isn’t meant to attract teabaggers rather than mock them?

Unfortunately, with the protege’s DUI last night WWE might be forced to make a quick end to this gimmick, so we’ll never know where Vince McMahon was willing to go with it.
