When Jessee “The Body” Ventura, aka the former governor of Minnesota, makes his way in front of FOX News cameras it’s sure to produce some fireworks. Going on Sean Hannity’s show didn’t disappoint. It doesn’t take long either. In the early goings Hannity tries to claim that the world and the USA is stronger after George W Bush’s two dismal terms. Ventura, a former pro wrestler and Navy Seal, has been trained to attack an opponent when a weak opening presents itself, and this is no different. 1, 2, 3… he’s out!
Oh, how right you are Omar Little. This title is lifted from one of the best lines, of the best characters of arguably the best television show ever made. The Wire. In a slow post election news cycle Political Pwnage digs back deep into the FOX News archives to revive one of the most one sided discussions of all time in 3 parts. Clinton agreed to a 15 minute interview with Chris Wallace so long as half the interview was spent speaking about the Clinton Global Initiative. It was an obvious ploy for FOX to ambush the former President. But being such an obvious ploy, and Bill Clinton being Bill Clinton, he was ready. Chris Wallace spent a few minutes discussing softball questions and grinning to set his trap while Clinton sat relaxed and waited. Then, quite casually, Chris Wallace tries to pin 9/11 on the former POTUS asking a question he must have practiced 100s of times. Not unlike a political transformer, the casual elder statesmen straightens up and moves from social change Jimmy Carter POTUS to I’m the POTUS bitch, and now I”m the president of you. There’s a particular spirit for politics Bill Clinton has few other politicians have ever exhibited. Rather then be consumed by political bullshit Bill Clinton thrived in it. He loved The Game. Instead of showing agitation or being ruffled by such an enormous accusation he’s not offended. You can read it all over the man’s face “I was wondering when we were going to start this thing.” Chris Wallace then gets to spend another 15-20 minutes getting embarrassed on his own network learning an important lesson. You come at the king, you best not miss.
