The whole point of a defamation suit is to seek reparation for damage done to your reputation. Indeed, in the wake of his shockingly successful defamation suit against the estate (read: widow and children) of American Sniper author Chris Kyle, former Minnesota governor turned conspiracy peddler Jesse Ventura declared that his reputation was restored. But restored to what? This guy wasn’t exactly a pillar of the community before Kyle claimed to have punched him in a bar. Here’s ten ways Jesse Ventura ruined his reputation without Kyle’s help.

10. Wrote a Conspiracy Book on the JFK Assassination

Jesse’s status as a conspiracy peddler will make repeat appearances on this list. It’s quite a downshift from governor of a state, and yet the path Ventura chose upon returning to private life.

Confirmation bias marks the conspiratorial mindset. It’s easy to latch faithfully onto information which appears to verify your presumptions, and just as easy to flatly dismiss information which contradicts your biases. Jesse exhibits that well in this exchange with former CNN host Piers Morgan.

That pretty much sums it up. If Ventura is a scumbag jerk it's not because of the lawsuit.

It strikes me that deliberately pissing off every active and former Special Operator of all services, and their families, by abusing Chris Kyle’s widow and children may be an act with consequences.

Fair attack or not, true or not, a decent man does not go after a widow.

Ventura is scum.

The damage Kyle did to Ventura's reputation didn't die with him.

You planning on getting your feathers ruffled by the conspiracy theories spread by Chris Kyle? Like his claims about navy seals and Katrina?

Ventura's beneath contempt. (But he's not really worth a story here, is he?)

I won't shed any tears when I wake up some morning a read that Ventura is taking a dirt nap...

Completely missed the trip to Cuba, the hugs of Fidel, and the worship of Che Guevara.

I don't know whether that qualifies as one or three more.
