Former wrestling governor Jesse Ventura has gone off the grid in Mexico to broadcast his latest rebel without a cause show. He fled down Mexico way because he believes that the U.S. government is following him around with surveillance drones. Ventura has long been a conspiracy nut who believes that the government is run by a secret Illuminati-like cabal. He thinks that we live in a fascist state that wants to turn us all into zombies or something.
“I’m off the grid. I move about with my TV show so that the drones can’t find me and you won’t know exactly where I am. As long as we have solar power and we can reach the satellite.”
While our government is no doubt up to tons of nefarious unpublicized shit, I think the Star Chamber has more to worry about than someone called “The Body” spouting a bunch of half-baked theories to his fifteen member audience. If the government is as all powerful as he thinks then him moving around between various Acapulco hotel rooms probably won’t keep him safe. I know the NSA bugged Americans and that Facebook sells all our data to the Taliban or whatever, but the only drones following Jesse Ventura live in his bald mulleted head.

Jesse Ventura, the conspiracy theorizing former wrestler and ex Minnesota governor, is threatening to run for president in 2016…with running mate Howard Stern. The remarks came in a speech he gave at an event honoring a retiring gubernatorial guard. Jesse “The Mind” says he’s talked to Stern about being his running mate and that Howard was very interested. Howard is also interested in jiggly tits and pussy farts but it doesn’t make him qualified to be VP. Not that being VP is hard. You just kind of hang around and hope the president chokes on a piece of veal or something. But could they really win?
Just the fact that this meathead was governor of a state points to a distinct maybe. If Reagan could parlay making chimp buddy comedies into being the zeitgeist of the 80′s and the Terminator can be the chief executive of California anything is possible. Ventura has already been elected to high office on an independent ticket, so while unlikely, they may at least get on some state ballots. That’s what makes America great, isn’t it? Anyone can be president no matter how completely idiotic and insane they are. I’m looking your way Martin Van Buren.
Could Jesse Ventura just end up being a decent President? Just look how he out-smarted the Polish Hammer, Ivan Putski, thirty years ago…
