The Jesse Ventura Tour: If You Missed Any Of It, You Missed A Lot

This past week former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura made the talk show rounds to promote his book “Don’t Start The Revolution Without Me” that was released in paperback this weeks. He spent the week appearing on shows like Hannity, The View, Fox and Friends and Larry King, he also made an appearrence on the Howard Stern Radio Show . If you missed any of the interviews this week you missed a lot, it was all very entertaining. 

Jesse is a very out spoken critic of the Bush Administration’s use of torture techniques like “water boarding” and believes that any type of torture is wrong. He feels America is better than that and doesn’t need to stoop the level of the terrorist.

Being I already posted earlier this week Jesse’s appearence on the Sean Hannity, I had to follow it up with these two:

Personal Treason Soils John McCain

“Following his loss to George W. Bush in the 2000 South Carolina primary, John McCain did something extraordinary: He confessed to lying about how he felt about the Confederate battle flag, which he actually abhorred. “I broke my promise to always tell the truth,” McCain said. Now he has broken that promise so completely that the John McCain of old is unrecognizable. He has become the sort of politician he once despised.

The precise moment of McCain’s abasement came, would you believe, not at some news conference or on one of the Sunday shows but on “The View,” the daytime TV show created by Barbara Walters. Last week, one of the co-hosts, Joy Behar, took McCain to task for some of the ads his campaign has been running. One deliberately mischaracterized what Barack Obama had said about putting lipstick on a pig — an Americanism that McCain himself has used in the past. The other asserted that Obama supported teaching sex education to kindergarteners.

“We know that those two ads are untrue,” Behar said. “They are lies.”

Freeze. Close in on McCain. This was the moment. He has largely been avoiding the press. The Straight Talk Express is now just a brand, an ad slogan like “Home Cooking” or “We Will Not Be Undersold.” Until then, it was possible for McCain to say that he had not really known about the ads, that the formulation “I approve this message” was just boilerplate. But he didn’t.

“Actually, they are not lies,” he said.

Actually, they are.”…
