The Body chooses Kerry

Former governor Jesse "The Body/The Mind" Ventura made a surprise appearance at a press conference to endorse John Kerry for president. Recently, Ventura had stated that he was unimpressed with both candidates (going so far as to say he wouldn't be voting for anybody for president). Thus, this comes as quite a shock.

I didn't vote for Ventura in 1998 and wasn't impressed with him to begin with, but as time went on, and certainly now in retrospect, he wasn't a bad governor. Had he run in 2002 again I would have given serious consideration to voting for him, as he was fiscally sane and wanted the government out of people's private lives, which is essentially what I believe. This endorsement may carry some weight among those fabled "Anoka county" voters. Man, can't Bush get even one break?
