Sarah Palin and Jesse Ventura: Nothing in Common

It figures that Sarah Palin would decides to announce her resignation on the Friday afternoon of a holiday weekend, when most of the media is already gone. That's ok. It's Monday, we're back, and we're talking about it.

Of course, when the news broke on Friday, BradBlog was already posting that rumors were swirling about a possible federal indictment coming down for the soon-to-be ex-governor. Brad Friedman's source was Shannyn Moore, an Alaskan broadcaster and blogger, who the Palinator soon singled out with threats of a lawsuit.

The fact of the matter is that there have been rumors floating around for many, many months now. A simple google search will turn up hundreds of thousands of entries. And Shannyn Moore has promised that she won't be silenced. She certainly won't be quiet tonight! She'll be my guest, at around 11:30 ET tonight.

In our second hour together tonight, I'll be speaking with the former governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura!

The fact that Palin and Ventura both served as governors is about as far as the similarity goes. I spent the weekend devouring Jesse Ventura's latest book, Don't Start the Revolution Without Me, in which at one point he writes about when he actually thought of resigning. I'll ask him about that tonight, and get his thoughts on Palin too.

I hope you'll listen in and, if you feel so moved, pick up the phone and join in the conversation at 866-303-2270.
