Can anyone in Connecticut possibly fall for this when they come home and find it hanging on their door?

Doorhanger from Linda McMahon campaign urging a vote for President Obama
Which is interesting, since there's this:
"I know Chris Murphy. Chris has a real record of job creation here in Connecticut, and a jobs plan that puts the middle class first. And I know Chris Murphy will always stand up to those who would turn back the clock on women's health. I know the stakes are high, and I need Chris Murphy as a partner in the United States Senate. Connecticut, I hope you'll support him."
As Evan McMorris-Santoro at TPM points out, this isn't the first effort McMahon has made to tie herself to Obama, but she goes way, way further with this one, urging voters to vote for President Obama. At the same time, though:
“Linda McMahon enthusiastically supports Governor Romney for president,” McMahon campaign spokesperson Todd Abrajano told TPM. He alleged that Murphy’s campaign “is telling people that it’s illegal to split their ticket,” and that was the reason for the McMahon doorhangers. The Murphy campaign called the claim “ridiculous” and “desperate.”
Ridiculous and desperate pretty much sums it up. In an election that has showcased the most shameless Republicans imaginable, McMahon gives even Mitt Romney a run for his money.

It's not over yet. Your contribution can help Chris Murphy focus on GOTV.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
