I can't get all worked up about this one. This is what you get when The Terminator is elected to public office. Did anyone really expect more?

Standard Arnold, IMO.

Speech is countered by speech. Kerry already had his "heart and sole of America" make their inappropriate comments about Bush. Big deal.

The sad thing is the response to Arnold's comment. Instead of something simple and rational, like "name calling isn't going to solve the budget problems" we got the usual partisan actions. I guess a rational comment wouldn't make the headlines, so we get the usual "you're a bigot, prove me wrong" response by labeling the comment as "sexist" or "homophobic".

It is a tired old dance that shows no signs of ending for either side.

who knows what arnold was thinking when he said "girlie men" ... it's hard to even decipher what he says let alone what his thoughts are on something. however, it's pretty ridiculous for a grown-ass man to use the phrase "girlie men." i mean he's the governor of california ... he should really work on his vocabulary if he wants anyone to take him seriously.

This I agree with. I'd much rather have the Macarena make a come back then to deal with this dance.
