Schwarzenegger’s plans: “I’ll learn when I get in there.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger admits to the New York Times today that he is asking Californians for on-the-job training:

“I’m not the smartest guy in the world. No, but I’ll learn when I get in there, first is the commitment. Like bodybuilding, first is the commitment.”

Couldn’t we make him the pretend mayor of a little town or something, rather than making a state the size of Iraq this movie star’s first guinea pig?

    We can do better than that – deny him any office by voting for McClintock.

    Clinton was not President before he became President and Bush was not President before he was President. In fact most first term Senators and Representatives are very green. The main thing is…Do the people want him to lead. Schwarzenegger is not dim at all.

    Having Schwarzenegger for governor is like having a teeth pulled by your plumber — not a smart idea. And by the way, haven’t anyone noticed that the ones who are running Arnold’s campaign are old croonies of Pete Wilson, the idiot who buried us in this mess in the first place?

    Gee, if it only took desire and commitment to get a job…

    Most employers demand experience. That some people in California would even consider someone like Ah-nuld tells me much about those people.

    Say I wanted to be editor-in-chief of the New York Times. (I don’t.) I have the commitment to excellence in journalism. I even have editorial experience. But there is no way in hell I could — or necessarily should — get the job.

    My stomach hurts even contemplating Schawarzenegger as governor.

    This whole thing reminds me of jesse Ventura, who at least had the experience of being a mayor (I think it was mayor) and still did not have a whole lot of success runnign amuch smaller, less complicated state.

    Myspace.com Censors Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Penis

    Rupert Murdoch, Myspace.com Allegations Forces Nico and The Velvet Underground Temporarily Offline: Arnold Schwarzenegger and Madonna Images at Center of Censorship Fiasco.

    New York – Nico and The Velvet Underground were removed off the popular website, Myspace.com on Monday August 15, 2005 without warning. Ironically, this is the same day that Madonna’s press release campaign started for her new collection of singles. According to the band’s spokeswoman, Anna Astley, “Myspace.com made no warning to the band that their account was being cancelled. Cancelling Nico and The Velvet Undergrounds’ Myspace.com account is potentially tantamount to censorship.”

    Amidst the controversy and swirling allegations, the band had accumulated thousands of fans, with tens of thousands of fans projected for 2006.

    Myspace.com seemingly disregard their own rules that images not contain nudity, violent or offensive material, or copyrighted images. Once applauded for its free and open forum policy, Myspace.com contains thousands of nude pictures, violent and offensive material and copyrighted images ranging from Paris Hilton to Angelina Jolie, and Snoop Dogg.

    Myspace.com is filled with flash images asking members to “slap” President George W. Bush, Paris Hilton, or Brad Pitt in order to win a free iPod.

    Media giant Rupert Murdoch who is the majority shareholder of News Corp, recently bought out Intermix Media, owner of Myspace.com for 580 Million.

    Myspace, not a stranger to controversy, has been accused by New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer of false advertising and deceptive business practices. Within the last year, Myspace was fingered for spyware attacks to redirect members to its search engine.

    Intermix Media agreed to settle for 7.9M, having admitted no wrongdoing. download.com/000000000001.

    Anna Astley refused to comment regarding any future legal action against News Corp regarding their First Amendment rights. “We are pursuing all options,” stated Astley.

    Anna Astley suggests that everyone reflect on Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart’s 1966 opinion that “Censorship reflects a society’s lack of confidence in itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime . . . .” — Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart, dissenting Ginzberg v. United States, 383 U.S. 463 (1966).
