Jesse Ventura poses with Dayton, Carlson, and Pawlenty, wears tie dye [PHOTO]

The Body still isn't a fan of formal wear.
Last Friday, Minnesota's current Governor and his three predecessors got together at the Capitol for a sendoff to Tony Policano, who worked as a security guard for all of them.

At one point, Policano posed for a shot with Mark Dayton, Arne Carlson, Tim Pawlenty, and Jesse the Body. Suffice it to say one of those men didn't look like the others.

Here's the photo: Asked to comment on the job Policano did during his lengthy tenure as chief security guard for Minnesota's top elected official, Ventura said, "Every Governor he protected is alive, aren't they?"

Ventura also said he's still seriously considering a 2016 presidential run. He's previously said that if he runs, he wants Howard Stern to be his running mate.

"I said that 2016 is an opportune moment because there'll be no incumbent," Ventura told reporters during Friday's ceremony. "I believe one issue that would carry me to victory... I would give the people of America to their first opportunity to elect a president who doesn't belong to either party, since George Washington."

"Who's on the horizon?" he continued. "I hear we're going to get Hillary and Jeb Bush. Gee, I guess we're now in England, aren't we?"

Classic Jesse -- colorful in more ways than one.

Still the best governor that Minnesota's had in the last 20 years.

If I call him a douche, will I get slapped with a defamation suit?

I find being open-minded, forthright and truthful quite classy... something sorely missing from our political spectrum. I could care less what clothes a person wears.

I would like to see Jesse get it in 2016..... IMO I just think Stern is a mistake if he is serious about running.

Surely anyone using the word 'jagoff' knows what 'class' is and how to judge it.

Ventura has way more class than the rest of those jagoffs.

@Jamie Grimm How so? I mean, what do you mean by that, precisely? What, precisely, makes the others "jagoffs?" And in what way, precisely, does Ventura have more "class?" In what ways, precisely, was he a better governor than all of them?

Or is it just your vague idea that they're a bunch of stiffs and he's this really cool, cartoony wrestler guy? Because if that's the case, maybe paying attention to politics is a waste of time for you.

@mitchell39 Liberals love Jesse because he hates America. That's why they voted for Oblamer.

@mitchell39 Jesse was a way better governor than Pawlenty.  Jesse wasn't perfect but he got things done and was able to compromise with Dems and Republicans.   A soulless lying fraud like Pawlenty always put politics and his own self interest over Minnesota.   Jesse wasn't perfect but at least he did good things.   What is T Paw's legacy?   He let a bridge fall in the water and then ran for President in the most pathetic way possible?    I'll take the idiot in a tshirt over Pawlenty's doucheness any day.

Yes, say some more things that millions of other slackjawed trolls say everywhere on the Internet all day every day. That way, you'll really stand out as a savvy, independent thinker.

It's a wonder that you people never get tired of yourselves, given how tiresome you are.

@MicheleBachmann "He let a bridge fall in the water........."

Are you really that fucking stupid or are you just pretending?
