So now it is between Larry Flint and Arnold.

Way to go Arnold.


Apparently Gary Coleman has also filed to run.

Hopefully there will not be so many people on the ballot that it plugs up the contenders chances.



OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

This is incredible! Just days ago, Rush Limbaugh had written off Arnold's candidacy as a non-starter. Wonder what he'll say about it tomorrow? Wonder if anti-SUV opponent Ariana Huffington will throw insulting barbs at Arnold as he parades around in his huge Hummer H1?

"A representative of Gary Coleman, who played Arnold Drummond in the 1980s sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes," filed the necessary petition signatures and paid the required fee to place the actor's name on the California ballot for governor."

Seems like he should also get him a pair of lift-boots so he can make eye-contact with voters at THEIR level.  Big grin

"Coleman, 35, who lives in Los Angeles County, could not be reached for comment. But his campaign treasurer, Steve Buel, who filed the paperwork in Oakland, told CNN that the actor's name "resonates with the voters."

Really? Can't be all that many who remember 'Different Strokes' after all these years-except that TV-brother Todd Bridges got into a lot of trouble with the law, as did once-adorable TV stepsister Dana Plato who got heavy into drugs and later died.

"In Ohio, Jerry Springer, host of the controversial self-titled talk show, told supporters gathered in a hotel in Columbus that he would not run for the U.S. Senate against GOP incumbent George Voinovich. Springer, 59 and a Democrat, said he couldn't get his message through the "clutter of the show."

GIVE ME A BREAK! The host of the WORST by far talk show on the air, an utter embarrassment and in insult to everyone's intelligence, a GUBERNATORIAL candidate? NOT happening; not in THIS lifetime! As for Jerry's message, what could that be? That unapologetically sleazy TV gets big ratings among the vast numbers of cultural illiterates he's fortunate enough to be able to pander to? And all the show IS, is clutter, take it away and there's NOTHING! Thank God some wisdom prevailed, the thought of this goon in politics sickens me!  Pissed

Jerry Springer was mayor of Cincinnati.

Ariana Huffington is total moron... I'm not an SUV fan by any means, but I find it extremely ironic that she is so anti-suv, considering that she owns 9, yes 9, houses and a private jet along with a few super expensive cars. (The kind of cars with the same fuel consumption as the SUV).

That's it, I am runing for Governor!

All you need is $3,500 and 65 signatures.
I could pass a petion around the office and a few friends to sign and I am on the statewide ballot.  Smile



As Governor, I will:
Weaken all noise abaitment laws
Defy the Federal Government and legalize marijuana
Release ALL prisoners jailed on marijuana charges
Legalize prostitution
Raise registration fees on SUVs 5 times higher!*
Require a special license to operate SUVs*


* I would exempt those who need these vehicles in the rural areas and small businees owners

Thank you, God! Even though Arnold is a liberal Republican, anything is better than the joke that was the Gray Davis regime. 90% pension to state employees? Where the hell are we living? Germany? Sweden? That is fucking asinine. Arnold will win the election, mark my words. Arianna Huffington is a complete nutcase and one of the biggest hypocrites in the history of American politics. The thing that Arnold has, that no one else does...Star power and name recognition.

Superfly - legalize squatting in all vacant buildings too!

Yeah, nothing quite better than having already vacant buildings have their value decreased by having homeless people take craps all over it. That will really jump start a real estate market.

Jcs, I'm completely behind you on this one. While Mr. Schwarzenegger is pretty moderate (at least compared to me), I am pleased to see someone who will restore fiscal sanity to the state of California. I wholeheartedly believe that Davis will be gone in a heartbeat...it sounds like the Democratic party in California is starting to crack, and with the Republicans running Simon, a "small-time" candidate in 2002, and he won 45% of the vote, I would say Schwarzenegger should be able to pull off that 5% based on the fact that most people already know who he is. Also, don't think that the RNC is going to miss out on this. With one solid candidate to back, and this being the only major election of 2003, the RNC will be backing Schwarzengger in every way possible.

Simon won 42%, Davis won 47% and the Green party candidate won 6%. The combined liberal/centrist vote was 53%.

The one word on this thread that perfectly describes this situation is CIRCUS. California is a three ring circus. Is it too late to give it back to Mexico, and would they even want it back at this point?

What is the point of recall laws anyhow? They create chaos and instability, cost TONS of money, and cause a loss of faith in the system. About two years or so from now, isn't there ANOTHER election anyway? Recall is already built in to most state constitutions in the form of IMPEACHMENT. If Davis has committed a crime, then he should be impeached. However, being a lousy governor, as far as I can tell, is not a crime. He hasn't created the situation anyway...California voters have! Democrats have solid control of the state...both houses of the legislature (by a wide margin), every single statewide office, and the vast majority of the Congressional delegation...not to mention both US Senators. The voters of California deserve to wallow in the mess they have created for themselves, and spare the rest of us the embarassment. They had a chance to dump this guy not long ago, when things were clearly pointed in this direction, and they opted not to. I just hope people outside of the United States are wise enough to realize that California is like the mentally challenged little brother of the family, and not representative of government in the US as a whole!

Well, personally, I feel Schwarzenegger is right on all counts about the crap in California. That state has lost all sanity. Of course with Hollywood in California it was inevitable that an actor would run.

The shit from California does nothing but piss off the rest of the country and alienate the state from the rest of the Union. Democratic states like Illinois look far-right wing fascist compared to the "Bear Republic".

Californians need to get it through their heads that they don't set the standards in this country try fruitlessly as they might. They just increase the rift between themselves and the other 49 upstanding states that actually contribute some good news. The rest of the country doesn't need to legalize the "gateway drug" and create wave after wave of pot heads who contribute nothing to society.

Californians must also get it through their thick skulls that federal laws apply to ALL 50 states. If they don't want to take orders from Washington, fine, LEAVE THE UNION! But be forewarned, remember what happened the last time some states got full of themselves.

If it isn't OJ murders, Kobe Bryant rape cases, Gary Condit, Scott Peterson, or rolling blackouts, it's hippies, and far-left nutjobs like Nancy Pelosi. The only news out of California is bad news.
