Secret Arnold Weblog Revealed

INSTAPUDIT ASKS: "HERE'S ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER'S CAMPAIGN WEBSITE. But where's the campaign blog? They're de rigeur nowadays. On the other hand, he's already got an online contribution button, so he's halfway there. . . . "

No longer. The tireless web weasels at American Digest, by exploiting a back door at the Gold's Gym Web Farm has discovered the secret blog Arnold has been keeping for some weeks. He has hidden it behind http://alfranken.com (where no one would think to look) and given it the obscure name: ELECTMEORI_LLBEBACK.COM

It would seem that he shares many of the concerns and policies of one Glenn Reynolds.

These are some choice excerpts, and, by the way, somebody get him a web designer pronto!:

WHO DIED AND MADE ME GOVERNOR? That's the question many are asking bioethicists these days, according to a story in Sunday's New York Times. It's a good question. It's not like DAVIS was especially good GOVERNOR (the ENRON MELTDOWN comes to mind as an example of this BOZO's flaws) but nowadays GOVERNORS are increasingly asked to take the place of THE FREE MARKET. And they're not BUSINESSMEN, or ABLE TO ADD TWO AND TWO. They're just officious people with graduate degrees. They've become part of an overarching POLITICAL establishment with no particular claim to legitimacy and with substantial evidence of feathering its own nest at the expense of the PEOPLE it's supposed to protect. This problem isn't unique to GOVERNORS, but they suffer from it as much as any others.

MORE ON THE CONTROVERSIAL BUSTAMANTE: Ronald Bailey joins Virginia Postrel's concerns about the appointment of the highly partisan BUSTAMANTE to head CALIFORNIA DEMOCRATS' "HOLD ON SOMEHOW!" COMMISSION. As mentioned below, I agree. This is like putting NOAM CHOMSKY in charge of a commission on the ethics of INVASION. Will the press focus on BUSTAMANTE'S precommitments on this issue?

SO FAR SO GOOD FOR ME, ARNOLD: Quickie polls show support for MY decision, and I'M getting a pretty substantial degree of support even from conservatives who don't really agree with ME.

WHO IS A JOURNALIST? That's the question raised by MY HANDLERS.

BELABORING THE OBVIOUS: According to the Washington Post, the Centers for Disease Control have released a new study saying that school violence is most common at the beginning of the academic year and in February. This is hardly news, as I HAVE BEEN SAYING THIS TO MYSELF FOR YEARS. Violence is a behavior OR A HIGH PAYING REALLY HOT SCRIPT, not a disease. AS GOVERNOR I'LL MAKE SURE THAT YOUR tax dollars ARE being spent on, say, West Nile Virus, Dengue Fever, AIDS, OR LIFECYCLES FOR THE POOR. Cure those, and let somebody else worry about behavioral problems.

SOME FURTHER THOUGHTS: I was watching BILL O'REILLY in the FoxNews AL FRANKEN LAWSUIT blatherfest. BILL is playing right into AL'S hands, BY SUING AL'S FLABBY BUTTOCKS HE JUST SELLS BOOKS FOR AL.

MISSING IN ACTION -- ARGUMENTS AGAINST MY CLONE: It's hard to refute most of the arguments against MY CLONE, because most of them aren't made. Still, there are some common themes that are worth unpacking here:

1. MY CLONE doesn't work well enough. It's too dangerous and is likely to produce deformed babies.

2. MY CLONE will work too well. It will produce so many successful ARNOLDS that it will replace sexual reproduction, leading to a loss of genetic diversity, LIKE THE KENNEDY FAMILY.

3. MY CLONE will produce soulless zombie tools of the corporate power structure. No, it won't.

4. MY CLONE is "playing God." What's that? Heart transplants were once "playing God." Now they're medicine. Ditto with In-Vitro Fertilization and, long ago, vaccination. "Playing God" is a synonym for "ELECT ME NOW." (see below).

5. MY CLONE is against God's will. No, it isn't. So there.

6. MY CLONE IS unnatural. Tell it to an identical twin. LIKE DANNY DEVITO.

7. MY CLONE gives me the willies. NO IT DOESN'T. I DON'T LOVE ME JUST BECAUSE I'M BEAUTIFUL

There may be a persuasive and well-founded case against MY CLONE, but it hasn't been made yet in THIS ELECTION.

There are some very compelling reasons to vote for Arnold in this recall election. He led Proposition 49 last year which expanded afterschool programs for kids (over 1.2M children had the opportunity to take advantage of these programs and stay safe from the streets). For more on this and other qualifications that Arnold has for governor, I invite you to take a look at Arnold for Governor
