Jesse Ventura is an idiot. Ventura said on Geraldo that, he would move to Mexico if Sarah palin were President. I used to take Ventura seriously , until he showed his true , crazy colors on this pile of junk conspiracy show and insulting the American people. Look , America messed up by voting for Obama , but I don't hate Americans for making a major mistake. Sarah Palin , while you may not agree with all her views... would "CLEAN UP THE CORRUPTION IN WASHINGTON DC".. Obama added corruption in DC , but Jesse doesn't want to move to Mexico now ??? Jesse is a conspiracy nut , who needs to go back to the WWE and stay away from "REAL-LIFE" issues that directaly effect human beings. Go away Ventura... maybe U can hook up with joy behar and make some of the ugliest, close-minded, moronic children ever to walk the Earth... Or maybe you already have ????? HHHmmmm it's a conspiracy... aahhhhhhhhhh

I cant believe you used the word "moronic" and "Sarah Palin" in the same post and the sentence wasnt "Sarah Palin is moronic". Palin will clean up the corruption? Just like she did in Alaska huh? By quitting? She doesnt even know what the job of a Vice President is! On FOUR different occasions she was asked and DIDNT KNOW.

It's people like YOU who are the nuts. You call him a nut and his show crazy without refuting one damned thing he says. Americans [as a whole] ARE stupid, and in most cases, on the exact same stupid level as Palin. Look who the President was from 2001-2009----maybe the most idiotic president ever to serve. How would Palin "clean up corruption"? You never specified that. She's in favor of two illegal and unconstitutional wars and she was going to be McCain's VP, and McCain just might be one of the most corrupt people in Washington now. Ever heard of the Keating 5?

If Ventura is a "conspiracy nut", then debunk something he says. I didnt hear you say one word about WHY he is a "conspiracy nut". It's easy to sit at a keyboard and ad hominem attack Ventura all day. Do some research and actually say WHY people are nuts. I gave you several examples of why Palin is an idiot----surely, you can do the same with Ventura, right???

Talk about people's children---look at Palin's. She claims to be SUPER Christian woman and one of her kids got pregnant OUT OF WEDLOCK. Nice example you set there Palin!

If you dont think there's conspiracies, than surely you can debunk Ventura right? Why didnt you do it then? Im waiting to hear a refutation in your next post. But you wont. You'll ignore this, like all of the "would-be" debunkers do on this site.
