Re: Jesse Ventura on the Rotten Republicrats

Those Jesse Ventura videos were even better than I expected. Surely it’s a good sign that “revolution” is on more and more people’s lips — and will be even moreso when Ron Paul’s book arrives.

The establishment has been wanting to shut Ventura up — and wanting to laugh him off the stage rather than substantively engage his ideas — from the day he came on the political scene. In a column I wrote at that time, I advised him to keep talking. He hasn’t been all good along the way — I recall that he used to be a McCain fan, and his tenure as Minnesota governor wasn’t all good — but it looks like he’s back on the right track now, and I hope he keeps it up.
