Jesse Ventura rolling into the news

And … interesting question

I’m confused. Why should I care about Jesse Ventura?

But not a very good answer.  Or maybe an answer which leads one item to the “not valid” claim in Jesse Ventura’s defamation lawsuit?

He is also reportedly thinking about running for president in 2016 — and choosing Howard Stern as his running mate.

Maybe you care about that.  Hell… I care about figures such as Jim Rogers in Oklahoma and Gordon Allen Pross in Washington, so I can’t besmirch you.  But it is an odd “so what?” about Jesse Ventura.

He now hosts a show on Ora, where he “offers his electrifying insight into the nation’s most pressing problems. No suits, no censors, no red tape. Just Jesse Ventura as we like him: bold, brazen, and bare-knuckled.”

Interesting because the lawsuit is against a man who alleged to have gotten into a barfight.  The thing is it seems Jesse Ventura has a point…

Kyle said that, when Ventura told him that the SEALs deserved to “lose a few guys,” he punched him, and Ventura “went down.” After he [Kyle] repeated the story, on “The O’Reilly Factor,” Ventura—who denies disparaging seals, and claims that no altercation occurred—filed defamation charges.

… but I also have to wonder if the point is lost in a half chance that Ventura’s real problem isn’t the old “Americans deserve to die” canard as the idea that this man claims he punched him out cold.  The story looks phony as a Pro Wrestling bit, of course, and full of a false patriotic “whoop”ing.  So I don’t know what Ventura wins or loses from it’s existence.
