Then again, if you want Franken to win, it’s clearly a heel turn. Jesse “The Body” Ventura today is seriously hinting (a Carlin oxymoron if ever there was one) at a run for the US Senate against Al Franken in Minnesota. In this reporter’s humble opinion, Jesse not only has Franken matched in political background, but he’s also as funny as Franken (if I can go by The Body’s stint as the WWF’s heel announcer back in the 80s). Jake Tapper reports it here. Tapper, aka James Bong of Suck.com, has fallen on hard times since Suck by getting a gig as an ABC News correspondent, but everybody has to pay the rent.
*** Update: Ventura tells The Minneapolis Star-Tribune his decision to run or not will come next week ***
