At Least Pro Wrestling Is Entertaining
Former Minnesota governor and professional wrestler Jesse Ventura on the two-party system:
In pro wrestling, out in front of the people, we make it look like we all hate each other and want to beat the crap out of each other, and that’s how we get your money, [and get you to] come down and buy tickets. They’re the same thing. Out in front of the public and the cameras, they hate each other, are going to beat the crap out of each other, but behind the scenes they’re all going to dinner, cutting deals. And [they’re] doing what we did, too—laughing all the way to the bank. And that to me is what you have today, in today’s political world, with these two parties.
