Slow Roasted Porkinator

-- by Gary Boatwright

California Dems keep the pressure cooker going for The Porkinator, Governor Is Focus of Ethics Complaint:
Top Democrats say that Schwarzenegger's lucrative contract with a publisher violated state laws over political gifts.

The manly Porkinator hides behind his wife's petticoats:

"It's the way it is in life — you encounter problems and you try to eliminate them as quickly as possible and then move on," Schwarzenegger said, according to Associated Press. He quipped that his wife, Maria Shriver, might be more upset than he was to relinquish millions of dollars.

"I have no problem about the money, but my wife has a little problem with that. She thinks it means less diamonds or something like that," Schwarzenegger said.

I have never gotten the impression that Maria Shriver was a material girl airhead. Is it possible The Porkinator is facing some couch time?

"I have no problem about the money, but my wife has a little problem with that. She thinks it means less diamonds or something like that," Schwarzenegger said.

One also has to love the class-obliviousness built into that statement. Most Calfornians live on very small fractions of that money, entirely without diamonds. Way to connect with the common man, Governator.

Ahhnold is a caricature of himself. Every time he opens his mouth he craps all over his shoes. I am beginning to believe he is a left wing plant.

Oh, Maria had to know what she was in for when she married the dope. Growing up a Kennedy clan woman may have been good preparation...

At least he got in legally, unlike Gregoire in WA who stole the election...

"At least he got in legally, unlike Gregoire in WA who stole the election..."

Don't go away mad, Scorpius. Just go away. When you don't have anything better to say than dragging in a completely unrelated wingnut talking point complaint about a governor in another state, then it's clear you really don't have any thoughts that aren't Republican-approved, no matter what you claim about your theoretical independence.

And your use of "Pericles" as a new handle is just a riot, given (a) your lack of eloquence, (b) his personal bravery -- he at least had the guts to fight the wars he advocated, and (c) his status as prototype for hubris bringing down a nation.
