Jesse Ventura - Putz Extraordinaire
Had to endure a Larry King interview with former MN Governor Jesse Ventura tonight while at a Mexican grill in Dinkytown (good food, bad TV). For the second half, "The Body/Mind/Whatever" was flanked by Congressman Charlie Rangel and some Democratic Party operative (perhaps another congressman).
I can't currently find a link to the video (wait- I think this is it), but it was pretty excruciating- Ventura mouthing off about the "two-party dictatorship" blah, blah, blah, the Democrats and Republicans not reflecting the "true" public will- kind of like a pathetic, scaled-down version of Lou Dobbs (who himself has turned into a disgrace).
Of course if Jesse the Putz truly gave a crap about anything he spews out, he could have run for another term as governor or even lifted his itty bitty pinky to build up the (moderate?) Independence Party here in Minnesota.
So when I got home, I tried to look up the as-yet-unposted video on CNN and I got another interview with this putz- this time claiming he was fired from MSNBC for being against the Iraq War- somebody tell Keith Olbermann!! He didn't get the memo, dude!!
