No... and I know your question was in jest, but the mere mention of him gives me heartburn. I will always believe that his election and governorship was among the darkest and most shameful chapters -- and one of the biggest fiascos, just generally -- in Minnesota history... for all the obvious reasons. But, in addition, when he was a local AM radio talkshow host before he ran for governor, he made himself my enemy with his thoughtless on-air pro-prostitution commentary regarding the anti-prostitution ordinances and state laws I was trying to get passed there at the time. One day, as one of the many live, on-air interviews my co-author and I did at the time, Ventura entered the neighboring studio to prepare for his program which followed the one on which I was a guest. Of course he could hear us through the monitors in his studio. His back was to me, but as we talked I could see him through the glass, shaking his head in obvious disagreement with what we were saying; and at one point even raising his right hand in an obscene gesture toward me which I will not here describe. When our program ended, and Ventura's began, he spent the first nearly an hour slamming us, promoting prostitution, and generally making an ass of himself as only he could. In a subsequent article that I wrote in a local publication there, and also in most of my hundred or so public appearances at the time, I so skewered him over it that during several of his later appearances on the campaign trail, he was confronted with it and summarily backpeddled like the coward that he was... and remains. My feather boa remark was not intended to conjure-up memories of Jesse Ventura... but, alas, it obviously has. Pity. He's not worth the time it takes to discuss him. Never was. Never will be.
