This is the funniest political news I’ve read in a long time. Evidently Ahhhhnahhhld got snubbed by his wife, who is a Democrat, after his convention speech.
“Well, there was no sex for 14 days,” Schwarzenegger told former White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta in an on-stage conversation in front of 1,000 people.
“Everything comes with side effects,” he said, drawing laughter from the crowd.
“I don’t know why I watched the presidential debates,” he said. “If I want to watch a smart liberal Democrat and a Republican leader argue, all we have to do is go out to dinner. They were lucky. They only had to do it three times.”
I wish more politicians were less formal and more candid. Arnold, along with McCain, are two Republicans that are exactly what I would look for in a Republican: socially they are rather liberal, while being both for state’s rights and fiscally conservative (as much as a politician can be anyways). However, I am NOT for changing the Constitution to allow Arnold to run for President.
At any rate I hope someone else gets a good laugh out of this.
Frankly, I think Maria was just using the speech as an excuse to avoid contact with Herr Gropenfuhrer. Say what you will, but his English skills are still better than the president’s. And I’m quite sure AH-nold is also more enaged with reality.
