    @banasy – Interesting point re: Jesse Ventura, although I will say this, the sole reason Jesse did not seek re-election as Governor of Minnesota was because of all the so-called "dirt" he uncovered within our Federal Government...Oh sure, there may be a lot of conspiracy theories floating around, but I do not believe for one moment that all of our elected officials, both past and present, are innocent, by any means. No, I just feel that Jesse would be our first honest Commander in Chief probably since JFK. (I'm not saying JFK was innocent either, but at least when he did something he regretted, he actually accepted responsibility for it and apologized to the nation, as was the case during the Bay of Pigs debacle in April 1961...)
