Jesse Ventura: Politics should function like NASCAR
Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura appeared on Larry King Live last night as a political analyst to talk about election results across the country. If Ventura is on TV, it's a guarantee he'll say something interesting. Unlike Rep. Michele Bachmann, his comments usually make some sense.
His latest idea: Requiring politics to run like NASCAR and require politicians to wear racing suits like drivers to display their sponsors. (via)
"I wish they would pass a law where all Democrats and Republicans had to wear Nascar racing suits, because if you look at the Nascar drivers, it tells who their sponsors are. And if they do that, we could then become informed voters, because we would know who owns them. "
Check out the interview, in two parts, below. His NASCAR quotes comes nine minutes into the first clip.
