Ventura Highway

Anybody remember Jesse "The Governor" Ventura?
He ran as a maverick, an independent who would clean up Minnesota's fiscal house and cut through the bureaucracy.
A former Navy SEAL and professional wrestler, he became the most unlikely governor in recent memory. He had strong streaks of libertarian thought, and made for a coloful candidate.
And a lousy governor, as it turned out. He was practically run out of state on a rail.
Here's the problem with voting out of anger: you make bad choices, and worse decisions.
