I probably should have ignored this. I mean, it’s not like he’s ever been referred to as Jesse the Brain. But this is too funny to pass up. Ventura first makes the reasonable prediction that Governor Palin will win the 2012 Republican nomination. I agree — if she runs she’ll win. He should have stopped there. But, alas, he can’t help himself. Now comes the funny part. Why, according to Ventura, will she win? You can’t make this up:
“She’s the type of person that certainly will be controlled by the status quo and the power structure. So she’d make a perfect candidate for them, she’ll do what she’s told,” he said.
Got that? Allow me to summarize the Body’s brilliant analysis. Governor Palin will win because she’s the establishment favorite. The Washington insiders, in Ventura’s cavernous yet empty head, love the Governor because they can control her. The power structure will tell her to jump and she’ll ask “how high?” or something. I can see why the Body believes this. After all, that’s exactly what happened in Alaska, right? Governor Palin was always a tool of the Murkowski-Ruedrich-Corrupt Bast*rd’s Club axis, and she was definitely under the thumb of the good old boys who ran Wasilla when she entered politics. Oh wait…maybe not. Finally, Ventura leaves us with this glittering insight:
Jesse noted Ms. Palin’s reality show and her current contributions on Fox News, saying the Republican Party is “grooming” her.
So there you have it. The establishment set up Governor Palin’s TLC travelogue and Fox News contributions as part of their “grooming” process. I can only conclude, then, that someone neglected to tell the establishment. Ventura, of course, also believes 9/11 was an inside job, all part of a secret conspiracy hatched by Bush and Cheney in their secret underground lair deep in the bowels of Halliburton, no doubt. Ventura sees wheels spinning inside wheels. My guess is that the Body used steroids one too many times, but who knows.
