our chat with Jesse Ventura.
Joe Kernen is easily among the most able and pleasant folks I have worked with on television in the past 20 years.
Today’s book schedule kicks off with Bill Bennett, includes Geraldo, and ends at Sean Hannity’s Great American Panel. If everyone would just buy the book right away, I could focus on my plan to complicate Mitt Romney’s consideration of Tim Pawlenty to be Veep by revealing the former Minnesota governor’s breach of his agreement to house me at his home during the 2008 GOP convention.
Despite this brewing scandal, Romney would be very well-served by a Pawlenty choice given all the reasons and more outlined in the Politico piece. Pawlenty actually has run a state for eight years, handled many crises, served his state’s military very well, and is very, very disciplined as a candidate. Judge Mary Pawlenty is also pretty spectacular, and the Gopher State’s cross-border solidarity with Wisconsin and Iowa would be a help as well. Former Governor Pawlenty’s affection for the Twins, Vikings and hockey are factors limiting his appeal.
Time to ship T-Paw a copy of The Brief Against Obama: The Rise, Fall and Epic Fail of the Hope and Change Presidency
I hope I can get through the last day of the Manhattan swing without running into Alex Baldwin.
Tonight’s show guests include the New York Times’ Ross Douthat whose Bad Religion: How We became A Nation of Heretics is also a very good book.
