to Minnesota, where prostitution could soon be legal, and
the hog farming crisis may be solved by a hearty crop of
least, that's what Minnesota's new WWF gubernatorial-elect,
Jesse "The Body" Ventura, suggested, sorta. Of
course, that was before his stunning November 3rd victory.
You know how politicians always seem to know just what to
say before an election.
I am absolutely thrilled that the same man who once treated
Rowdy Roddy Piper and Hulk Hogan to whup-ass by the gallon
will now be shaping Minnesota state policy.
so he has no staff and no real plans for what he'll do.
Picky, picky. Can't a man be spontaneous anymore?
And being a member of the Reform Party,there are plenty
of rules to break. Isn't that what being governor's all
find out, I surfed the Net for Ventura tidbits, and found
a few choice ones. A poorly-designed site listing the top
100 wrestling quotes of all times, cites JV:
if you can, lose if you must, but ALWAYS cheat!"
still, a religious site likens the Ventura victory to the
rise of another famous figure--Jesus Christ!
followed the plan of Jesus: he spent no money, had no
staff, no drama teams, dance teams, or music teams with
which he deliberately set out to deceive the seekers.
There was no bait and switch: what you see is what you
get. Wouldn't that work in religion?
God's grace genuinely amazing? It takes people with no
hope of heaven and makes them into children of God! And
it leaves surprised onlookers slack-jawed with an unforeseen
outcome. It's sometimes so astonishing that -- like Gov.
Ventura on the morning after -- our biggest challenge
is to believe it has really happened."
perhaps my friend Ron says it best:
much of a difference is there between politics and pro
wrestling anyway? In both arenas, the wrestler/politician
creates a public image based on fictitious accusations,
invented personalities and bluffing to create an environment
of hostility toward any wrestler/politician who gets in
the way or disagrees with him. In both cases, it takes
months for a final vote/confrontation on disputed issues
and the wrestler/politician has to keep support by getting
on TV and lying his ass off."
you heard the news? Hulk Hogan, not to be outdone, is threatening
to run for President. This could get really interesting.
