Jesse Ventura Wants To Be Ron Paul's Running Mate -- On One Condition

jesse ventura

Jesse Ventura was on “Good Morning America” today, promoting his new book (and, presumably, leather fringed jackets).

When George Stephanopoulous got tired of hearing Ventura’s 9/11 inside-job theories, he asked if Ventura would consider a presidential run in 2012.

Ventura wouldn’t. But he’d love to run with the man he dedicated his new book to — Ron Paul — on one condition:

Paul has to run as an independent, not a Republican (click to 3:30 if you don’t feel like sitting through Ventura’s conspiracy theories and a clip of him guest-starring on a soap opera — but why wouldn’t you?).

Oh, and whether that works out or not, it’s safe to say Ventura won’t be endorsing Michele Bachmann.
