Former Minnesota Governer Jesse Ventura tells ABC's "Good Morning America" that he wants to be Rep. Ron Paul's running mate: "[I]f Ron Paul runs as an independent, I will give great consideration to being his running mate." Yes, but there is no indication that Paul is giving it great consideration. Politico points out that Ventura is a rather big fan of the Texas congressman:
Ventura dedicated “63 Documents the Government Doesn’t Want You to Read,” his latest book, to Paul and believes the Texas congressman is “the only federal elected official who will stand up for America on the congressional floor.”
Via Allahpundit, Ventura stops by the Howard Stern show today to explain that the United States government is controlling the weather and might have been behind the 2004 tsunami.
