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!
In trying to index the web’s wealth of political pwnage we can’t just stick with current events. And while the undertaking of indexing all the time George Bush has looked foolish is gargantuan, so is our dedication. Apparently the star of this video was jailed and received a good bit of abuse/torture for the act, but should I buy a buy, his money is no good inside it. Of course, there’s a 99.99% chance he’s a Muslim and my wares would be no good inside him. But then maybe I’ll work hard and invent the world’s first Halal beer just so I can reject his money. International hero. Seriously, Nike should sign this guy.
MSNBC is often refereed to as “just as bad” as FOX News. Their right win counterpart. But like many dualisms people hold they fall short of reality. Defining one thing in terms of something seen as it’s social opposite almost never works. A great example of this was displayed when David Frum was interviewed by Rachell Maddow. Frum, a former speech writer for GW Bush, and author of many of the speeches Bush used to lie to the American public on a litany of issues regarding the Iraq and Afghanistan wars went on the offensive accusing Maddow and MSNBC of just this. Arguing that the social opposition to right wing extremism is in fact a sign of equivalency. Defending her show, and her network, Maddow proceeds to dismantle Frum’s hypothesis leaving him to stammer as he backtracks. Not the biggest fan of Maddow, MSNBC or really anyone on TV at all. But in the classic pot, kettle, black argument Maddow effortlessly shows the simplicity of Mr. Frum’s views. Without a speech writer to help her.
