Governor Jesse Ventura

Former WWE star, tuned Governor of Minnesota, turned crazy man: Jesse Ventura has done it all. He’s always been bald, but the remaining scruff fluctuates wildly. As a wreslter, he had a crazy blonde horseshoe around his bald head.
When he was running for office, he shaved it off, looking clean cut and respectable. His head would remain hairless for the duration of his tenure at the governor.
I’m still not crazy about the Mika Ditka mustache. Still, he carried himself respectably, and looked the part. There’s a reason the shaved look is acceptable in nearly all facets of life these days – it gives off a “don’t fuck with me” without being too crazy. Unfortunately, after finishing his term, things went down hill for Jesse. He started spewing garbage about September 11th being a conspiracy. I’m as cynical as the next guy, but really? These days, Jesse makes Glenn Beck look like Charlie Rose.
And the hair has followed suit.
As his words got crazier, so did the hair. That mess in the back signals laziness and a disregard for detail. Conspiracy theories aside, if he ran for office with that hair, no way he gets elected again.
I couldn’t track down a picture of Ventura’s wife. But he was a wrestler. Which I guess gives an excuse to post a picture of another wrestler, Trish Stratus.
