    In an attempt to be serious, Clinton, Obama and McCain will each speak during tonight's WWE Raw show on the USA Network (9 p.m. Eastern/Pacific). WWE has been active in terms of using their product to promote people registering to vote. Can't blame them for that. It'll be interesting to see how they do and if they'll be allowed to be corny or off the cuff at all. All three are expected to speak live to tape, not in person.

    Whichever one hits someone with a folding chair or "foreign object" during their bit gets my vote.
    Or wears the late lamented Grand Wizard's turban. I'd be down with that, too,

    What a horrible, hideous idea.

    Agreed. Wrestling lacks credibility as it is. Bringing political jackasses on the show only lowers the bar.

    Obama could play the Iron Sheik, Hillary could be Nikolai Volkov!

    What is the Hillrod?
    I've seen the dialogue on Yahoo News - Obama rips off the Rock, and McCain hits the Hulkster, Triple H and Natche.

    Some would say politics is the activity lacking credibility in this discussion.
     
  10. OK, this is now bizarre.
