Next Week: Arnold Issues Everyone in CA a Decoder Ring
There didn't seem to be any left, but here's one last reason to have some small amount of like left for The Governator:
Did Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's office use a coded veto message to send the f-bomb to Tom Ammiano, soon after the San Francisco assemblyman made news by telling the governor to "kiss my gay ass"?
Schwarzenegger's people say no. But the X-rated evidence is hard to miss in a message that Schwarzenegger sent to explain why he was vetoing an Ammiano bill dealing with financing for the Port of San Francisco.
A straight reading of the guv's letter laments "the fact that major issues are overlooked while many unnecessary bills come to me for consideration," and concludes, "I believe it is unnecessary to sign this measure at this time."
But a vertical read of the far-left-hand letters in each of the missive's eight lines offers a more blunt explanation: "I f- you."
Juvenile? Sure. But wouldn't you rather have elected officials playing harmless pranks on one another, than doing to us what they usually do to us?
I thought so.
