With due respect to Snoop Dogg, today's post-election mantra is
Ar-NOLD'S up side your head
Arnold's up side your head
I don't necessarily care that much about Schwarzenegger. He'll likely be better than Davis, if only on the grounds that a random name plucked from the frickin' phone book would be an improvement on that weasel. On the other hand, Arnold's rhetoric has so much mushy compassionate conservative nonsense as to make him pretty suspect.
What does make me especially happy about his victory is the rebuke it represents toward all the haters. I'd be hard pressed to think of another American political campaign in my lifetime that was near as vicious and malicious as the unwarranted wickedness thrown at Arnold Schwarzenegger. I'm happy to see him win just on that ground alone.
The calls for a retributory recall against Schwarzenegger started before the polls even closed. Every left wing jackass going was threatening legal challenges to the election. Jesse Jackson was all but literally foaming at the mouth about voters being disenfranchised by the lack of "infrastructure" for a legitimate election. Apparently minority group members were not being allowed to vote or something- though of course he could cite not a single example of even having long lines at a polling place, despite the high voter turnout.
A reasonable person of a left wing persuasion might be somewhat skeptical of Arnold. Will he be proposing some cuts in their favored programs? Possible, but his rhetoric has been really mostly to the liberal side- and he did marry into the Kennedy family.
Instead, however, many pinkos have absolutely gone off their beam and come after Arnold with every wicked thing they can accuse him of, no matter how ridiculous. This long time support of Jewish causes has been smeared as a Nazi overthrowing democracy.
OK then, let me gleefully indulge/rub your face in your dumb dystopian fantasy just a bit...
