In November 1998, Jesse Ventura--former movie actor, pro wrestler, and Navy SEAL-rocked America when he was elected governor of Minnesota. This reform party candidate single-handedly inspired those who usually steer clear of politics to head out to the polls, lending their support to the politician known as "The Body." Who would have guessed that a motorcycle fanatic, community college dropout from a blue-collar neighborhood would eventually become the darling of international media, spouting brutally honest opinions, while reacting to criticism with notoriously thin skin? With each day of Jesse's governorship, he continues to make headlines, his stances igniting a mixture of rage and elation from political and social groups, and always fascinating the public at large. The quotations of Jesse Ventura sculpt a telling image of the man considered the people's politician. This pocket-sized book allows readers a deeper understanding of the magnetism of the man whose goal is "serving the people not the parties." Arranged thematically by the personal, political, and social issues addressed by Ventura, Quotations of Chairman Jesse lends rare insight to the philosophies and ideals of the Minnesota governor at the center of a worldwide phenomenon known as "Jesse Mania!"
