Sorry about this, folks

Sometimes it is embarassing to be from The People’s Rebublic of Minnesota. Think of its presidential electoral history and also the dark experience of electing Jesse Ventura as governor. Now another … how does one describe this particular type of idiot… ? Here is part of the story, to you, from Reuters:

I vant to get your vote! Self-proclaimed vampire running for governor of Minnesota Reuters MINNEAPOLIS – Minnesota voters, who eight years ago elected a former professional wrestler as their governor, may find a self-proclaimed vampire on the ballot for the office this year. “Politics is a cut-throat business,” said Jonathon “The Impaler” Sharkey, who said he plans to announce his bid for governor on Friday on the ticket of the Vampyres, Witches and Pagans Party. Like Jesse “The Body” Ventura, who was elected governor as an independent in 1998, the 41-year-old Sharkey once was a wrestler, although he spent his time “The Unholiest of Kings: Tarantula” on obscure professional circuits. “I’m a Satanist who doesn’t hate Jesus,” Sharkey told Reuters. “I just hate God the Father.”

Perhaps the maladictory psalms are in order?
