Not to be deterred by things like voting records, economic indicators or events that transpired during his time in office, Arnold Schwarzenegger is returning to the entertainment world in cartoon form. Behold: “The Governator.”  —KA

How lame can you get? All anyone needs to know about Arnold is he is a jerk. A man when a private citizen and adult who thinks having siren on his car entitles him to turn it on and plow thru traffic is not to be taken serious. A man who takes a high office and creates a circus is not to be trusted. Arnold belongs right up there with baby Bush.
