Arnold Schwarzenegger announced today that he would be running for governor on a reform platform to battle special interests and “clean house.” I think it is unbelievable to me that this guy is getting so much press and that the Democrats consider him a viable threat against Davis. Due to this new development, Democrats are looking for strong candidates to battle the Terminator–they don’t think Davis can hold his own.

Geez, let me bring the general public back into the confines of reality. Arnold is an (make quotes with fingers for emphasis) “actor.” Sure, he may act like a governor now, or for a couple of months after the election until it becomes time to do any real work. And when he fails miserably from lack of political or legislative experience, will we recall him too?

Davis is not at fault that Enron and its gang of thugs, er executives, decided to corner the energy market and milk California for millions, check that, billions. Davis is not at fault for the dot-com bubble bursting and for the failures of high-tech businesses all over the state. You can blame dumb and wishful VCs for that. Who’s to blame for all these things ultimately!? Greed. Good old-fashioned greed. I bet that’s what’s fueling this recall effort!

  1. As if this recall couldn’t get any more surreal; did you hear who else is running for gov? One hint: “Whatchu talkin’ bout Willis?” That’s right! It’s Gary Coleman! Hey, Arnold’s got my vote for gov! No, I think he’d be better suited as state treasurer. And how about appointing Todd Bridges as California’s new drug czar. This whole recall matter has turned into a circus! California is the laughing stock of the nation.

  2. Yeah, just wait until they start asking Arnold about his stance on issues, especially business issues, and about legislative policy. He’ll be like, “Uh, I’ll be back!” or the more famous “Fuck you, asshole!”

  3. It’s pretty obvious that there are more people interested in the Kobe Bryant scandal than on the recall election. There are 673 votes on whether Vanessa should leave Kobe, but only 15 votes about the events of the recall election. That’s just sad!
