Jesse’s In

Jesse Ventura can pretty much go first name only these days. At least in Minnesota.

So he’s officially entering the Senate race, pitting himself against Norm Coleman and Al Franken.

I’m officially ambivalent. On the one hand, I’m all for more options to choose from. On the other hand, what a fucking spectacle (and I suspect Norm Coleman will be the benefactor of it all).

We officially have the most ridiculous senate race ever.

UPDATE: Okay, maybe not. I wouldn’t put it past him, though. Next Tuesday is the filing deadline. Man, everyone ran quick with that one. Interestingly, now the story is the coverage (i.e., ABC News’ initial interpretation of Jesse’s comments).

    I’ve only lived in Minnesota for 5 years, so Ventura is still a mystery to me. Actually, Franken’s support is a mystery to me, too. They’re both definitely not the same old politicians — I’ll give them that.

    I wonder if they both take out the trash when their wives tell them to? We know Coleman does.

    Greg- You really believe anything in that ad?
