I'd watch that movie.
Haha! Definately. :lol:

I got in a fight with my boyfriend about this recently and he made a few good points. I guess I just wanna give him a fair chance to do it right. The only thing that really bothers me is his whole womanizing personality. It's not right to show Americans that kind of conduct is okay (which is effectively what has been done). But, I guess if it's what the people of Cali want...
Well that's just silly. Serial gropers have accomplished many things and helped make this country what it is today. If George Washington hadn't groped Ben Franklin, would we be such a great nation? No. If John Adams hadn't put such a hurting grope on Hitler during World War 1, would this still be a free world? Certainly not.

WTF

File under 'gong show.' I'll sleep well knowing that the world's fifth largest economy is sailing gently into that good night with a monosyllabic roid-monkey as it's steersman. All Californians are privy to the whims of Conan thanks to a small plurality of the obscenely idiotic.

Still, at least the Nazi stuff was funny.

Arnie for President!

I'd quite like to see Arnie become President. A racist, chauvenist, money-grubbing dictator who likes to blow things up and was in Running Man, is still preferable to a racist, chauvenist, money-grubbing dictator who likes to blow things up and was an alcoholic redneck.

America has had cartoon politics since Bush stole power, Arnie's installation shouldn't come as a surprise. He's just a bit more entertaining, a more vital source for gags and puns. Hurrah.

Sadly the system has been set up to stop Arnie from ever being President. Still, screw the system, overthrow it, and elect the terminator nazi sexist bastard that he is

I can't wait for Arnie's next film:

"GOVERNOR": one man's struggle against the odds to submit a budget that closes deficit and restructures inherited debt!

for those of you old skool H&Vers, I was talking to everbexy (who's in cali right now) and he seems quite disappointed. So I had to laugh at him for a bit. Cause for once, Iowa has more pride than California.

i missed the registration deadline by two days, but if i had the chance to vote, i would have definitely voted for arnold. His views on many issues are really good and although he's the republican candidate, his only real "republican" views are on the monetary policies, which i agree with anyway. For all other issues, his stance is essentially democratic. He may not have experience, but Gray Davis had experience and look where that got us. Even without past political experience, he has a good team of advisors and say what you want about puppet political figures but no president, governer, whatever would be anywhere without their advisors. so go ah-nold and WORK IT, CALI! :P

Actually, the politiicians with experience are the ones to worry about. They think they're smart enough to know everything there is to know and tend to really get us in trouble. Look at Kennedy and the Bay of Pigs/Cuban Missile Crisis...two really, really bad ideas that he and his tight clique of advisors thought they could pull off without consequences. That almost led us into WWIII, since we learned later that the Russians had functional missiles in place and authority to use them with the local commanders. If they had gone with the airstrikes and invasion, southern Florida might be glowing.

I think people have gotten too caught up in the political labels of Republican and Democrat. It's not as if they apply across the country in the same fashion. A Republican in New York or California may be more like a Democrat in Kansas or Oklahoma when it comes to social issues, simply because the political system is skewed towards the Democratic thought process. Arnold is just one person, just as Shrub is just one person. Their actual power is quite limited by the need to work with the legislative branch in their respective systems. As Jesse Ventura proved, the power of the executive means nothing if you can't build a consensus with the legislative branch. For the rest of the country, we can sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

Quote of the week from The Onion;

"Who would have thought that a bad Austrian artist who's obsessed with the human physical ideal could assemble such a rabid political following?"
