Former Minnesota governor and pro wrestler Jesse Ventura is out looking for media coverage for his new book, "DemoCRIPs and ReBLOODlicans: No More Gangs In Government," which officially hit shelves Monday. In the book, he is highly critical of the mainstream media.
He says a number of media outlets aren't letting him do interviews, including radio host Don Imus and Fox News, Politico reports.
The Pioneer Press gave him some ink today, noting that Ventura says he suffers from "electile dysfunction" -- the inability to be aroused by either political party.
In the current political system, politicians have to bribed to get them to do anything, Ventura tells CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien."
Ventura's world outlook is simplistic and delusional, but it is not news that deserves attention, Joe Loveland writes on the Wry Wing Politics blog.
Here's a Tru TV look at Ventura's career path from Navy SEAL to wrestler, politician and pundit.
Here's a recent interview Ventura did with TPT's "Almanac" where he sounds off on Ron Paul, the marriage amendment and the voter ID issue. This is the whole show -- the Ventura interview starts at about 36:15.
