Inside the Beltway
“The entire Japanese people are deeply moved and encouraged by scenes of U.S. military members working hard in support of relief efforts. Those in Japan and the United States are true ‘tomodachi’ [friends]. … They share basic values such as democracy and respect for human rights,” Mr. Kitazawa told the Reagan crew.
JESSE TOLERATES SARAH
Jesse Ventura did not mask his annoyance with Fox News when he recently spoke with Inside the Beltway, complaining that the network would not deign to put him on the air. But CNN has no problem with the former Minnesota governor. Mr. Ventura appeared on CNN on Piers Morgan’s talkfest Monday night where the pair argued over politics; the former wrestler reconfirmed that he hates both Republican and Democratic parties, but when pressed to pick a presidential candidate, he allowed that he would bet on Sarah Palin.
“She’s the type of person that certainly will be controlled by the status quo and the power structure,” Mr. Ventura told Mr. Morgan. “So she’d make a perfect candidate for them. She’ll do what she’s told.”
