In a landmark ruling, U.S. District Judge Janet Bond Arterton has ruled that voters in Connecticut can dress badly on election day! As you no doubt know, Linda McMahon, the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, is the Republican nominee for Senate in the Nutmeg State, and there was concern that voters showing up at polls in Santino Cobra T-Shirts would be violating the prohibition against political paraphernalia within 75 feet of a polling place. But rest assured: the votes of citizens who avidly follow professional wrestling will be counted!

A spokesman for Connecticut Secretary of the State had said last week that poll workers might require voters wearing WWE clothes to cover up their threads, and so on Tuesday Vince McMahon, CEO of WWE, filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction to stop officials from classifying company paraphernalia as political. Yesterday Judge Arterton ruled that ovters can wear apparel decorated with the company's logo to the polls. (The judge also declined to prohibit voters from showing up wearing sweatpants with logos on the rear.) In a statement obtained by The Hartford Courant, McMahon said, "I am pleased that Connecticut voters have had their freedom of expression to wear WWE merchandise and their right to vote restored." Are we the only ones who teared up a little reading that? God bless America, and the McMahon's, and Sgt. Slaughter!
