    Who cares? I want to read about the impeachment of this crooked administration, but evidently, I have to go to MSNBC for any real news!

    Too bad. Ventura is a lot more fun than Franken, who is oh-so-serious now that he wants something. People in Minnesota will ask themselves tomorrow why they traded in a perfectly good wrestler for a mediocre comedian.

    Franken is a foul mouthed jerk. I can't wait to hear him on the Senate floor. No bad language there, please, although it's made you a million bucks. Check your mouth at door, Franken.

    Of course Minnesota will elect him because they're not too bright in Minnesota.

    Wow! I guessed it right that it was the media before I even read the full story. Anyone running for public office should consider if he or she is ready for the media. Media rules. Take it or leave it is the message from Ventura.

    Well, I certainly understand why you wouldn't want to , Mr. Ventura. There is way too much hatred out there right now.
