Chris Christie Only Hates Some Illegal Drugs

Well, why should this bother anybody? After all, Linda McMahon did say recently there’s insufficient evidence that long-term steroid use is much of a risk to your health. And she should know, right? I mean … right? Promoted by Rosi.

So Chris Christie, the purported Governor of the Great State of New Jersey, is taking his “Win one for the GOPper tour” to new climes today:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is the latest nationally known politician to get involved in Connecticut’s close Senate race.

The Republican is scheduled to appear with former wrestling executive and GOP candidate Linda McMahon at three campaign rallies on Monday afternoon. The pair is scheduled to make stops in Stamford, Waterbury and Glastonbury.

Many of these men have developed diseases and/or died as a result of anabolic steroid useThis is in support of the same Linda McMahon who made her fortune with Worldwide Wrestling Entertainment with her husband Vince who was indicted in 1993 for distributing illegal anabolic steroids to his independent contractors (AKA employees classified in the way that would screw them the most). As a result Linda took over the WWE and said she would clean it up.

Records provided by Linda McMahon in 2006 to House investigators demonstrated that 40 percent of her wrestlers were still abusing anabolic steroids, more than a decade after the indictments.  The excuses have been that the wrestlers are not employees, but independent contractors, and as such WWE doesn’t control their training regimen.

Oh, Come On Already

Can we please get a sense of proportion?  Why don’t we just declare that any kid who wants to do anything more than sleep, walk to school, take classes, go home and sleep has to give up all Constitutional rights?  We could bleed them daily, dust their privates with cayenne pepper to be sure they don’t have sex, implant their arms with tracker RFIDs and stick little black boxes up their bums that tell us everything that ingested.

Lawmakers in New Jersey are considering a measure that would add muscle to the policy on student steroid testing.

Student-athletes as young as 14 would undergo random tests for steroids under a bill being considered in the Senate Monday. Middle school students would receive instruction about steroid abuse.
