Well, for the first time in my life, I voted for a Republican.
Sure, a socially liberal Republican, but a Republican, all the same!
Folks outside of Cal-eee-fornia can’t totally understand the way outgoing! Governor Davis goaded us into this: Rolling Blackouts. Budget Battles. Unemployment. Businesses Fleeing. TRIPLING THE CAR TAX. DRIVER’S LICENSES FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS.
Personally, I couldn’t stand the way Davis, when he was trying to be forceful on a point, would extend his hand like he was holding a pointer… not quite a fist. He couldn’t seem to make a fist… maybe someone told him a fist was too violent, too forceful, and it’s better to seem gentle and agreeable. Didn’t work. I’ve seen sock puppets with more conviction.
As for Schwarzenegger’s questionable behavior toward women: Can we all recall John F. Kennedy’s womanizing? How about Bill Clinton’s below-desk secretary? How about, for that matter, George W. Bush’s cocaine use and drunk driving? How about Ronald Reagan’s astrology?
Let’s see how the man does the job.
