Let's Start the Protests Now

I have a feeling that Arnold Swarzenegger writes his own speeches, because they are borderline retarded. The clip I heard on The Daily Show last night went something like this:

"I made uh film callt 'True Lies.' Well dat's whut dey shudt call da Democratic Nashunal Convenshun!" (Followed by a long pause for unworthy applause.)

Ugh. If you could see my eyes right now, they'd be rolling. The guy is a moron who got voted into office just for the novelty of it. The thought of him actually being able to advance his political career is absolutely terrifying. But taking history into account, the following isn't so inconceivable:

After Tuesday night’s rousing RNC speech by Arnold Schwarzenegger and yesterday’s talk of a constitutional amendment that would the allow foreign-born citizens to become president, Republicans have been e-mailing one another lines from an 11-year-old Stallone movie that now may be prophetic... In the 1993 campy sci-fi flick "Demolition Man," Stallone’s character is brought back from the past and has this conversation with Sandra Bullock’s character:

Sandra Bullock: I have, in fact, perused some newsreels in the Schwarzenegger Library.

Hold it. The Schwarzenegger Library?

Bullock: Yes. The Schwarzenegger Presidential Library. Wasn’t he an actor when you...

Stallone: But how? He was President?

Bullock: Yes! Even though he wasn’t born in this country, his popularity at the time caused the 61st Amendment which states...

Stallone: I don’ wanna know. President.

I know we got ridiculed for Ventura, but at least he had some intellegience. But Arnold cuts the cake his pronounciation of words is ridiculous and it is hard to take him seriously. And the simple fact that he says some of the dumbest s*** I have ever heard.

That's just creepy.
And I was reading through your posts and came across your love of Gilmore Girls. You are right on - it's great! But I do tend to tell people I like it in an apologetic kind of way. :/

That's so funny because I just watched part of Demolition Man recently while avoiding studying. I cringed during this scene because it was just a little too close to reality for me.

Trinity- you should know Dan would never apologize for his love of the Gilmore Girls. I think he might feel that would be unfaithful to his favorite show. But I love GG, too, and have found myselfapologizing for it as well. Sorry, Dan. I guess I'm not a true fan.

No shame! Never!

Republicans like to propose changing the constitution a lot don't they.

First let's right discrimination in and ban all gays from the same rights as everyone else.

Second let's let a barely comprehesible putz run for President.

Third let's ban the Gilmore Girls.

Will the insanity never end?

It's just like in Back to the Future when it was predicted that Florida would win the World Series in some year, and then they did. At the time the movie was made, Florida did not even have a major league baseball team. I think that information is correct.

Well, then thank god that's not true, Kristina.

In reality this scene may have made old Ahnold interested in running for politics.

By Blogger Trekgeekscott, at 2:11 PM that's supposed to prove I'm wrong??

By Blogger Kristina, at 3:13 PM  

Yeah, Sonny Bono, Eastwood, Ahnold, Reagan ... we Californians lurve us some celeb politicians.

Remember that Reagan's speeches all used to be self-referential to his movie days. I think those sorts of politicians (and hells, maybe all of us) refer back to their previous lives when they get in front of the camera. Milk them sound-bytes!

You know as for the whole thing about Republicans wanting to change the Constitution, in Cincinnati discrimination IS legal and there are laws against things ever being made fair for gays and lesbians. Also, the police kill young black men a lot. It's the only reason people now Cincinnati exists.
