Barkley: Ventura will run for Senate ‘if he feels like it’

Following up on his earlier Minnesota Post report, Doug Grow says ex-Sen. Dean Barkley won “that big Wednesday golf match” against ex-Gov. Jesse Ventura. “If you’ll recall,” Grow writes, “the winner of the match supposedly would NOT run for Senate as an Independent candidate against Republican Norm Coleman and DFLer Al Franken. So will Ventura run?”

Barkley said, “If he feels like it. … We talked about it. He hasn’t changed. Part of him wants to, but part of him doesn’t want to leave the lifestyle he has now. He’ll make up his mind at the last minute.” Filing ends on July 15.

    I’ll put you somewhere between the overpriced hot dogs and aged eggplant.

    If your prophecy doesn’t mention me in some grand way, you are a false prophet.

    I feel the stench of my meaningless prophecies mold beneath me.

    Should make some more coffee.

  4. Spence Spence June 13, 2008

    Run, Jesse, run!

    That’s all from me.

    It doesn’t really matter, however my mind sees this “little nerdy guy”Norm, the “mouthy wimp”Franken and this big tall “manly MAN” former wrestler ! It just seem to be a “no-brainer” when you consider how the masses normally think…

    OTOH MN loved and elected HHH for decades with that twangy wimpy voice of his ! Nothing really wrong with his voice, it and his brand of socialist politics just didn’t inspire me…

    I’ve seen just plain independent used with a capital. I’m not sure if they’d abbreviate that particular party name.

    Capital “I” independent means Independence Party, I assume.

    Nah, unless someone wants to hear my mantras. I don’t want to sound like the repetitive jackass that, in reality, I am.

    Shall I repeat the Theodore Prophecy?
