  1. #1 Jesse "The Body" Ventura Versus Al "Sissy Boi" Franken 
    Jesse Ventura To Run for Senate?
    July 09, 2008 9:20 AM

    In an interview with NPR's David Welna that ran today former Gov. Jesse "The Body" Ventura, Ind-Minn., sounds like he may run for Senate, challenging incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman, R-Minn., whom Ventura defeated for governor in 1998, as well as Democratic nominee and former Saturday Night Live humorist Al Franken.

    Ventura, born Jim Janos, tells Welna that the main reason he would run is because of Coleman's support for the war in Iraq. "That's the reason I run," he says. "I run because it angers me...All you Minnesotans take a good hard look at all three of us. And you decide: if you were in a dark alley which one of the three of us would you want with you?

    Ventura had a stormy tenure as governor and horrible relations with the Minnesota press corps. Thus, it was the June issue of a local wine magazine where he chose to drop hints about his pending campaign.

    "I'm not a politician, I'm a statesman," he told Wineheads. "I do one term, and then I go back to the private sector. If I get back into the fray again this year, it's only because I've been gone five years back to the private sector. That's what I did when I was mayor. That's a statesman. That's not a career politician."
    Lord help us if our political choices come down to pro wrestlers and girly comics.

    Maybe he'll bust a folding chair over Franken at one of the debates. :D

    I can attest, Jesse is a no non sense type of guy. He was elected mayor of Brooklyn Park, Mn when I lived there. The incumbent mayor claimed they needed more taxes. Jesse ran on no new taxes pledge. Needless to say, there was a $74million dollar bankroll the city had. Jesse told that to the voters once he found out and the rest is history.

    I saw that too (LKL?) I used to kind of like Ventura but he came over as a fruitcake on the show I saw.
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    Ventura doesn't believe in a conspiracy, although he believes there are questions unanswered and things the government aren't being clear about. I'm not really sure what the hell that means.

    Former governor Jesse Ventura, who is a member at the TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, site of the 3M Championship, showed up at the course Thursday to play in a pro-am driving his Porsche with a sticker on the back window that read “9-11 was an inside job.”

    Ventura left the course to do an interview with the Middle East network Al Jazeera.

    “I prefer Al Jazeera to the Minnesota media,” Ventura said. “I’ll talk to them; I won’t talk to you.”
