WWE scrubbing YouTube for Linda?

Too funny!

World Wrestling Entertainment announced late Thursday night it is removing "some dated and edgier footage" from the web, an apparent effort to keep the clips from becoming fodder in the Senate campaign of its co-founder, Linda McMahon.

"Some of this footage has been misused in political environments without any context or explanation as to when it was produced. This damages the corporate reputation of our company," said Brian Flinn, a senior WWE official.

Flinn, the senior vice president for marketing and communications, made the announcement in an email sent at 11:16 p.m. He said the statement was not a reaction to the recent use of WWE clips in a political ad.

One of the clips that was used by McMahon's opponents in GOP primaries and in 2010 and 2012 featured her husband, Vince, ordered a female wrestler to strip, get down on all fours and bark like a dog. It is now unavailable on YouTube as a result of the WWE asserting its copyright.

This is a joke plain and simple. Regardless of the whining from the WWE, Linda McSham made her money peddling smut to children during what was called the "Attitude" era...this included images a necrophilia, misogyny, and graphic violence.  

But scrubbing of Youtube by the WWE has nothing to do with McSham's campaign...
