He's The Terminator
He can make you laugh
He lives the American
While many Californians
might be concerned that he is going to add to the air pollution and the
desecration of the earth with his cigars and a Hummer (the Gov's gotta get
around in style ya know!), maybe they should be more concerned about the
new Governator's master plan.
What might that master plan be? Well, do we really know for sure if he's
human? He seemed to have a special connection with the Predator, who was
definitely not human. Of course The Terminator is not human, everyone
knows that. Heck, Arnold's character from True Lies, Harry, was human but
he was a master spy.
Just imagine - it's an awesomely amazing combination for a state Governor
- especially for California since it has so many things screwed up to
begin with. A governor who can scare the living daylights out of you, beat
your hind end and make you wonder "What just happened and who the heck was
That's something to be envied. Perhaps the State of Illinois should look
for their own action star Governor to put things back on track.
Of course - when looking at Arnold the man, versus Arnold's characters -
it really is important to remember that the characters were fictional. It
is doubtful that Arnold is a cyborg - you'd think he'd have shown some
signs of life by now.
While Arnold is currently in the midst of an incident with the IRS (looks
like he owes them close to $80,000 in back taxes), he's proving to the
world that a boy from post-World War Two Austria can live the American
He came to America speaking broken English and wriggled his way into our
hearts while pumping some iron and packing on those bulging biceps. He
romanced and married a Kennedy while he himself was a Republican (Remember
- die-hard Democrats? What's not to love about that thumb-the-nose
strategy?). Arnold Schwarzenegger moved on up through the ranks of
American society until he claimed the prize of Governor of California.
He's even on the Internal Revenue Service's bad side - just like many of
us plain old Joe Schmoes.
He's managed to do all of these things with a smile (we're assuming his
smile is genuine and is not gas - we'll just go with genuine). Once again
- what's not to love? Go Arnold - keep on living the dream for the rest of
us (just make sure you pay your taxes, okay?).
