Have Your Hummer and Hug It Too

Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to make the environmental movement sexy. Why get rid of Hummers, California’s governor argued Wednesday, when you can make them run on biofuel and hydrogen, like his?

Arnold Outlaws Handhelds-While-Driving

With the governor’s signature, California becomes the fourth state to ban drivers from holding cellphones while driving. The law goes into effect in July 2008, and motorists will still be allowed to use hands-free phone technology.

  • Cool tidbit: Schwarzenegger said he sometimes follows his 16-year-old daughter to make sure she’s not driving while holding a phone.

    Schwarzenegger Muses About ‘Hot’-Blooded Latina Lawmaker

    A tape (not yet available) has surfaced in which Calif. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger talks about the “hot” and racially mixed blood of a legislator. But there’s no hay to be made here: The legislator says she embraces the label.

  • Above: screenshot from a promotional video that Schwarzenegger made about Rio’s Carnival in which he expressed an early interest in mixed-race women.

    Schwarzenegger Defies GOP on Emissions Cap

    Schwarzenegger Running Away With Race, Say Polls

    California Legislators Challenge Hemp Ban

    California legislators have sent a bill to Gov. Schwarzenegger that would legalize the cultivation of industrial hemp, setting up a direct confrontation with federal drug authorities.  The plant, which contains none of the hallucinogenic properties of marijuana, is considered a kind of miracle crop by farmers and entrepreneurs who seek to exploit its fast growth and myriad uses.

    Schwarzenegger Reaffirms Support for Minutemen

    The Calif. governor said about the group of private citizens who are patrolling the country’s border with Mexico, “I support any time that a civilian wants to go and do the job that law enforcement cannot do.” (Story—scroll down)

  • Ironically, the governor made the statement at a campaign stop while trying to burnish his credentials with Latino voters—many of whom view Minutemen as akin to the KKK.

  • Also, higher up in the piece: Karl Rove gets booed while trying to woo Latinos at a conference.

    Schwarzenegger & Celebs: ‘Stop the Madness’ on Drugs

    This 1985 anti-drug music video was the only such work to ever be sponsored by the White House. Featuring Ah-nold, Whitney Houston, David Hasselhoff and Nancy Reagan, it is a bygone, cheesy reminder of the nation’s fight against drugs.
