View Full Version : Governor Shwarzenegger: Would he get your vote?

I'm thoroughly convinced that one doesn't need to be so qualified to be a good governor. Look at all the qualifications Gray Davis had and what a clusterfuck of a job he did here.

I'd relish the chance to finally get to vote for someone I respect and whom I've heard of sooner than 6 months before election time. Really it's about being a good leader and delegating responsibility wisely, which anybody with good people skills can do. I know Arnie has good people skills and garners respect. I hope he runs; he's got my vote.

Please do not vote for him. In Finland some cracksmokers got Tony Halme (of WWF/UFC fame) into the parliament... The results are something... Interesting...

Gray Davis is an obsolete model.

If we're gonna have a fuckup in office he might as well be entertaining. I'll vote for him.

Sure! Let's all vote for an uber-body-building, ham-fisted actor (apparently incapable of demonstrating emotional range beyond surprise and anger, both of which may serve him well as governor), who is also a registered Republican of Austrian birth and upbringing, married to a minor Kennedy, that happens to be a major news-anchor. Sounds like it can't go wrong! Go for it!

If Schwarzenegger ran for office, that would show major guts on his part.

Just given all that Fighty just mentioned, plus all the other dirt that certain media figures will no doubt dig up on him, it'd be a media circus.

To run for office would equate to presenting his balls for a swift kicking by the public.

Yeah it's a pretty big gamble. His career still has potency left though. He looked incredible in T3.

He'd be fine. A guy like Arnold would take any criticism with a smile and get even more votes for having a good sense of humor about it.

If I have to choose between a killer robot from the future and a non-killer fundraising robot, I'm going for the one with better catchphrases.

If I was running against Arnold, all I'd do is play that one clip from Kindergarten Cop where Arnold screams at the class full of children. Of course, that may be a risky move considering Arnold could counter with a clip from Terminator 2: Judgement Day where he sacrificies his own life to save the future. Not one to be beaten by a goddamned cyborg, I'd counter with a clip of Terminator 1, showing him blowing away an entire police station. Arnold would then, in turn, show a scene from Pumping Iron where he lifts weights (we're running out of movies at this point). Sensing my opponent to be off balance, I finish him off just by showing all of Batman and Robin.

Maybe that's why Maria doesn't want him running for governor.

Twins

Hey hey hey, what was that sequel where Arnie gets pregnant? I haven't seen it, but I'd guess it is even worse than Twins, however much that seems to be against the known laws of the universe...

Get the quote right!

"I hope you left room for my fist because im going to ram it into you stomach!"

"I finish him off just by showing all of Batman and Robin."

BULLSHIT! AH-nuld would then show Conan hacking the head off of Thulsa Doom and brandishing it in front his followers!

1-i don't think you can blame davi for california's mismanagement.
