This evening "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed back outspoken author and Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura for his unique brand of perspective and candid commentary.
Joining Piers Morgan for an exclusive live interview, Ventura detailed his distaste for modern-day political parties. Likening Democrats and Republicans to California's most-infamous gangs, Ventura has adopted the terms "Democrips" and "Rebloodicans." Red states and blue bandanas not withstanding, he said it's far worse in Washington than it ever was in Los Angeles:
"The Crips and the Bloods, the street gangs, while they can be devastating to a certain small part of the population, the "Democrips" and "Rebloodicans," they affect everybody in this country and they've been in charge for 100 years."
A former professional wrestler known by the nickname "The Body," the 60-year-old independent supplied what he feels is a possible alternative solution:
"The best thing we could do is on every ballot remove all gang names and gang symbols," he suggested. "Allow them to run on their names. That way, it becomes important that the voter educate themselves."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as the long-time grappler takes popular politics to the mat, in hopes of crowning a new system as champion.
