The article reminded me of the New Yorker profile on Shaq where he discussed his philosophy of “dreamful attraction,” a philosophy which I’ve carried with myself ever since. I think Arnold’s philosophy is similarly enlightening. This article is wonderful. This is why the Internet exists.

The more and more I read about Arnold and come to understand him better, I get more convinced that his desire to be governor of California is based more in his personal ambition & ego than in any real desire to serve.

Yeah, his discussion of gang banging the black woman at Gold’s Gymn was just inspiring.

Not condoning orgies or anything, but why does someone have to be a saint to be elected? I’d rather elect someone who did a few stupid things and learned from them then someone who never did anything at all.

Attempting to satisfy all of the puritan interest groups on both sides of the political spectrum is futile. And we’re surprised when our elected officials from the highest office on down end up being human versions of Wonder Bread who possess no discernable opinions before they have consulted with their handlers? To me “safe” equals passionless.

To me, semi-literate drug-addled sexist bonehead = semi-literate drug-addled sexist bonehead.
