From the moment a Founding Father first asked for a vote, politicians have been saying dumb stuff. From George Washington to George Bush (both of them!) right on to present-day pundits like Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, and Hillary Clinton, political leaders can always be counted on to say funny, exasperating, and nonsensical things, often unintentionally. In Sh*t Politici ...more

This was an amusing collection of quotes, but pretty uneven. Some of the quotes were funny or witty or outrageous, but many were long, rambling, and mundane. The author added a few paragraphs at the beginning of each chapter, which were interesting, and a few words before or after some of the quotes, which were amusing, but in general, he didn't do much else. He was at his best when he offered some opinions or commentary. ...more

An interesting book of quotes from various political individuals, ranging from the funny and silly to the ones that make you wonder how the person thought ____ was alright to say.

I discovered Jesse Ventura’s on the weekend before the 2016 election. I was surprised that the book was available, given the craziness of this election. .

Most of the writing was done by others. Ventura (or someone) collected scores of quotations, mostly one liners.

Some are typical political jokes: Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) at the end of a reelection campaign speaking on a radio show: “Eight more days and I can start telling the truth again.”

Others capitalize on a single sentence out of context: C

Sh*t Politicians Say:

JESSE VENTURA

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

Just this last year after many years of being apolitical, I looked, studied, and journalized my thoughts. From this evaluation, I wrote my white paper ‘Sixty Days To the End of The USA As We Know IT’; and during that time I read Jesse’s book.

In my published white paper, I used a few of his book’s quotes. I did this because they were within the scope of it.

Jesse’s SHIT POLITICIANS SAY is funny and informative. If you are interested in

Collection of quotes ranging from witty to asinine. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll rage at the fact that these people make decisions affecting thousands of others. Jesse gives a bit of context but sometimes it still isn't clear what the person is taking about. Everyone is fair game - including himself, who gets his own chapter at the end to show that no one is immune and no one should be excused from saying Sh*t. ...more

This book is a collection of random quotes from politicians that Jesse Ventura found inane, funny or quizzical. I usually enjoy Jesse's books, but this one is simply a bunch of quotes. It needed more context and in some cases an explanation of why the quote was inane etc. Unless you are looking for a bunch of random quotes, give this one a pass. ...more

Usually I'm a fan but this book is just a cut and paste of quotes with little context. I'd like to hear more of Jesse's thoughts. ...more
