Vince McMahon sure knows how to emphasize his point.
On Thursday, he said his World Wrestling Entertainment would hand out clothing and merchandise to celebrate a federal judge’s ruling that voters wearing WWE gear can’t be turned away from the polls.
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon is former CEO of the WWE and Vince’s wife.
(Last week, Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz was reported to suggest that WWE clothing would be considered campaign material, though she later said that people would be told to cover up only if they had the name or photo of a candidate on their clothing.)
Today, Vince sent some samples to reporters who have covered the campaign between Linda McMahon and Democratic Attorney General Richard Blumenthal: a T-shirt, two caps, a headband and wristbands.
The letter in the box said: "Enclosed please find the exact assorted merchandise sent to Susan Bysiewicz’s office should she decide to wear WWE merchandise to the polls on Tuesday.
"Sincerely, Vince McMahon"
Just in time for Halloween.

"Since its opening, Sterling House has been a mecca for young and old alike, and provides social, educational and recreational activities which assist them in their positive and healthy development," according to a statement.
In this hard economic climate, both Samuels and Jarmon believe that giving back to the community is more important than ever before, the statement said.
For Samuels, shown in photo, and Jarmon, the food drive to help feed those less fortunate "was a great way to give back to the community and help those in need. Many lined up to donate canned goods and other dry food items," the statement said.
With the help of their employees, patients and neighbors, Samuels and Jarmon were able to deliver more than $400 in non-perishable food items to the Sterling House food pantry.
"People helping people have been one of the prominent strengths of our country. During these hard economic times, the spirit of giving and helping is needed more than ever," the statement said.

The program will be held at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 1 in Bowers Auditorium at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.
Discussion will focus on how natural resources drive, or contribute to, conflict in specific locales; how the United States and its coalition partners can best use civilian and military assets to mitigate conflict; and case studies related to both eastern Afghanistan and Liberia, according to a statement.
Panelists are Harry Bader, a F&ES doctoral candidate who works for the U.S. Agency for International Development; Dante Paradiso, a Yale College graduate who just finished a tour as the senior civilian representative with Brigade Combat Team Task Force Bastogne; and Col. Randy George, former commander of the Army’s Task Force Mountain Warrior and now a military fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations.
The natural resources counterinsurgency cell, better known as the Afghan tree army, was modeled after the Depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps and was launched in May after a five-week training program for a core group of 13 local forest supervisors, mostly graduates of Nangarhar University in Jalalabad. Rather than using Hellfire missiles, the tree army aims to defeat insurgents with homemade Pulaski axes and Biltmore sticks, the tools of conventional forestry roughly a century ago.
Despite American support, the tree army is entirely an Afghan operation. The 13 supervisors are now passing on their knowledge to 50 newly hired foremen, who will recruit 250 workers this fall in mountain villages around Nangarhar province. If the Afghan tree army succeeds during the initial rollout, then Zorghun Afghanistan (Green Afghanistan, as it is known locally) could go nationwide. The goal is to have tree armies in four northeastern provinces. The basic tactic is to recruit the same young men of military age who would otherwise be most heavily recruited by insurgents to provide forest and range management in watersheds.

Activities include a climbing wall, compass course, nature crafts, games, pumpkin decorating, guided trail hikes, hayrides and pony rides from 1 to 3 p.m. Exhibitors include the Hamden High School Reptile Club and the New Haven Mineral Club.

Or, just maybe get the inspiration to begin another adventure of your own
NEW HAVEN — The North Face, a supplier of outdoor apparel, equipment and footwear, will bring alpinist, photographer and The North Face Athlete Team member Jimmy Chin to New Haven on Oct. 18 as part of the 2010 New Stop Exploring Series.
The live, nationwide 29-city tour "invites adventure fans from across the country to share in the incredible tales of seven top professionals from The North Face Global Athlete Team," North Face said in a statement.
The tour this year "boasts its most thrilling lineup yet, with more athletes and more tour stops," the statement said.
Jimmy Chin, who started his career as a climber and grew into an award-winning, highly-published adventure photographer, will share the story of how he returned to his climbing roots on an expedition that took him deep into the Indian Himalaya, the statement said.
In “A Mountain called Meru,” presented by The North Face and Trailblazer, Chin will talk about how teamwork and trust helped him and his fellow climbers survive the hardest climb of their careers – an 18-day ascent of the 22,000-foot Mount Meru – racked by storm and cold, the statement said.
"One of the most versatile and sought after expedition photographers in the industry, Jimmy spends most of the year climbing, skiing, exploring and photographing expeditions in remote corners of the planet. In the past decade, Jimmy has filmed and photographed some of the best adventurers, climbers and skiers in the world, documenting everything from first ascents of unclimbed towers in the Karakoram, to ski descents of the highest peaks in the Himalayas," the statement said.
Attendees will get to hear the story first-hand at Chin’s presentation, which will take place at The Yale Law School Levinson Auditorium beginning at 7 p.m. Oct. 18.
It will be preceded by a 5:30 p.m. VIP reception in benefit of the Connecticut Forest & Park Association, the statement said.
Tickets for the event are available for free on a first come, first served basis. Guaranteed seats are available starting at $8 here and at www.thenorthface.com/speakerseries.

Representatives from sponsoring organization IKEA attended, trust officials said in a statement. IKEA has planted 1.5 million trees across the country and will be distributing 500 free seedlings locally on Oct. 16 and encouraging people to plant trees throughout the community, the statement said.
“The Long Wharf Nature Preserve is a seaside habitat and a haven for native species of birds, butterflies and other insects,” Land Trust President J.R. Logan said in the statement. “It is also a recreational and educational asset for the community. In this way Long Warf Nature Preserve demonstrates both humanities impact and nature's resilience.”
When New Haven was first settled, the harbor's water touched the southern corner of New Haven Green, and the harbor was so large and shallow that a wharf had to built a half-mile out to water deep enough for navigation – hence the name “Long Wharf,” Logan said.
"With such diversity in such a small area, is an ideal place for teaching about habitats, the effects of physical conditions on plant life, the adaptations of different organisms to different habitats, and the fidelity of certain organisms to their habitats. The Preserve offers the opportunity for New Havener's to observe and learn about nature. Activities such as bird watching, walking/jogging, photography and relaxing are always encouraged."
The celebration recognized two "champions of the preserve in particular:" David Reher, shown in bottom photo, who served on the Land Trust board of directors for many years and later became a committed preserve manager; and Kris Sainsbury, a long-standing board member and a member of the Land Trust’s Preservation Committee, who channeled her love of City Point and her effectiveness as a community organizer to raise the profile of the Long Wharf Nature Preserve, the statement said.
“Kris developed an influential cadre of individuals and organizations who become key advocates for the Preserve,” Logan said, also in the statement.
