Annoying Arnold

James Lileks and Roger L. Simon are kinda sorta in the Arnold Schwarzenegger for Governor of California camp. Of which I have been suspicious.
Do we really need more goofball celebrities in charge? I love the Terminator movies. They’re great action flicks which at certain moments transcend themselves. But I thought Ronald Reagan, Sonny Bono, and Jesse Ventura were enough.
Arnold is apparently a liberal Republican, one of those guys who could go either way but chose the GOP for whatever reason. Fine then, he’s probably like my dad with bigger muscles.
I’ve been in the sorta anti-Arnold camp for a while, even though I don’t live in California and mostly couldn’t care less. But then I find out that Rush Limbaugh is bloviating hysterically that Arnold isn’t conservative. God forbid he’s a moderate. Maybe even a closet liberal!
So it turns out he’s the type of guy who’ll annoy Rush Limbaugh and the Europeans?
Well, shit then. Go Arnold!
