Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kiss My Ass.

Argh.

I watched his speech last night.

Is this guy pompous or what?

"Don't be economic girlie men".

Is it just me, or is anyone else offended by this? I consider myself as liberal as the next guy (I'm actually a member of the Nova Scotia Liberal Party), and this idiot has the balls to call liberals "girlie men" after he already got in trouble for it!

He's just so arrogant!!

My respect for Arnie dwindles day by day.

He got your attention. I guess that was all he was after (I didn't see the speech or any of the RNC).

Seriously, if that got you angry, then I feel bad for you. You must not be able to walk outside your house without getting enraged.

And he got in trouble for it? By who? Oh yeah, the liberal media. He laughed when they approached him on it. Its an old Saturday Night Live joke, how come I never heard you bitch about Dana Carvey saying it? I guess it was funny then when a mock-image of Arnold was saying it.

Please grow up and get some tougher skin.

If you are offended by Guhrly Mahn statements then boo-frickin-ho, he wanted to make a point and he made it very well - by getting uppety about it it simply reinforces a negative stereotype of liberals as cry-babies. Take it like a man and quit whining .

Schwarzenegger is living proof that America is the land of oppertunity, he didn't get to where he is by sitting back and complaining; he did it through steroid abuse, group sex, blockbuster movies and smart business investments.

Dave, I'm offended by the title of your thread. It insinuates that conservatives engage in oral-anal sexual activity. I'm asking that you apologize and that this thread be removed.

DaveC -

I agree with you - the "gurlie men" phrase needs to be retired from politics.

It is offensive to many (including women) and shows a real low level of political maturity in its spokesperson.

Why is no one at this convention talking about the MILLIONS of American jobs lost and the MILLIONS of Americans thrown into economic disaster during the Bush administration?


Embarassed maybe?

He's a misogynistic low life, and his past behavior hasn't been indicative of a governor, I dont know why we'd expect his current/future behavior to improve.

Ok, so maybe I overreacted a bit. I was a little out of it when I watched the speech ( ) so I did get kinda uppity about it.

This line made me fall off my chair. You're the greatest.

I don't think you'd have taken it too kindly if Barack Obama had said it at the DNC to refer to Republicans.

It doesn't offend me that he called Democrats "girlie men". I'm not that sensitive. Hell, my dad has used it since I was 7 years old when he made fun of Arnie. It just seems that "girlie men" is a term straight out of the 1950's. It's more that he seems to be mocking women rather than Democrats. Which makes me uppity because I wasn't raised that way, and as shallow as I may seem to some around here (see the Beach Volleyball thread in FYM), I do have the utmost respect for women and I know that women are every bit the equal to men.

Using the term "girlie" as an insult is more of an insult to girls and women than it is to the man it's directed to, IMHO. That's what's got me more upset than anything.

I've taken much worse insults than being called a "girly man".

Arnold Schwarzenegger is still a pompous ass.

And he can still kiss mine, stammer.
