Jesse Ventura Running For Senate After All, Probably!
Now that he has finallydefeated Flash Gordon, the former despised governor of Minnesota looks like he'll try to be that great state's next senator. His opponents: Hobo King Norm Coleman, and Michael Kinsley's boyfriend Al Franken. His chances of winning: pretty much zero.
Ventura said he'd make an Official Announcement next week, even though he sort of spilled the beans to NPR's David Welna in a St. Paul parking lot this weekend. "All you Minnesotans take a good hard look at all three of us. And you decide: if you were in a dark alley which one of the three of us would you want with you?" he said. This is an excellent question, and one that West Virginians should ask themselves the next time they think about pulling the lever for Robert Byrd.
Anyway, Norm Coleman will win this thing in a landslide, and maybe he will be able to afford a real apartment someday.
