Is anyone a fan of Jesse Ventura? Did you like him from his days of WWF wrestling? What about when he was governor of Minnesota?

Well he just came out with a new book.

I always thought he was refreshing that he had his own view and wasn't afraid to let us know what he was thinking.

What's your view on him?

Vintage Jesse Ventura on display in new book (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22515242/) - Former Gov. Jesse Ventura may prefer Mexico to Minnesota these days, but his ex-constituents will still recognize his style if they pick up his upcoming book, "Don't Start the Revolution Without Me!"

Ventura uses the book part personal memoir, part political rant to rail against organized religion and the media, detail his brushes with celebrities and suggest that he should be viewed as a possible presidential candidate.

"Is it worth it to put my family and me out there, to take on a force that most of the American people are willing to go along with?" Ventura writes in the book, due in stores in April. "The government is supposed to be us, and it's not us anymore. It's been hijacked. Just when is somebody going to do something?"

Having been a wrestling fan all my life, I liked Jesse "The Body" Ventura when he was in the WWF (now WWE...lol)... *He was one of the best heels the business has ever seen. *...and when he stopped wrestling, he became a color commentator (which is why he's holding a mic in that pic (the pic, which is from the cover of "The Wrestling Album" released in 1985 (God, I'm such a geek)))...
