No, this is not a spoof lifted from The Onion.
Fear Factor, the reality show makes people eat bugs and jump into a bed of snakes (in other words, TV for the brainless) is now associated with presidential candidate Ron Paul.
In an interview, host Joe Rogan, who is best known as an announcer for martial arts fighting, said Paul is “the only guy who is saying anything that makes any sense whatsoever.”
But, according to U.S. News and World Report, Rogan added that voting is a waste of time. “At this point in my life, I feel like voting for president is a lot like rooting on professional wrestling. It might make you feel better, but I’m not sure it affects the outcome that much.”
Is it a surprise to anyone that the host of Fear Factor relates to professional wrestling?
Is it a surprise that Paul supporters, many of whom are way out there, trumpeted the Rogan endorsement on the Daily Paul website as another boost to his momentum?
