[insert cheesy '80s movie quote here]
According to this, Arnold Schwarzenegger's press agent is already booking gigs for 2006. This doesn't reflect too kindly on his performance as governor now does it? I haven't been keeping up on California since last fall's recall. How are things going down there? They've been quiet. Too quiet. Someone should probably check on them. The whole state may have fallen in the pool!
California as a wayward toddler? No, that metaphor doesn't work at all.
Anyway, Schwartzy is probably just keeping his options open. If you're more a fan of his movies than his politics, like me, you might want to root for another power crisis. Terminator 4, I am Legend and King Conan are all on the line here. Let someone incapable of carrying $100 million movie productions take over Sacramento.
There's also something else to ponder. If this story from the San Francisco Gate is to be believed, Arnie's new budget proposal would leave the state with a multibillion dollar deficit right around (you guessed it!) 2006. Is this all a coincidence? Or a stunning display of Austrian political maneuvering?
