briefly/buffett

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at August 14, 2003 5:14 PM First thing I've heard that makes me think Governor Arnold may not be so bad: he has brought on Warren Buffett as his economic adviser. Funniest quote from the article:

"Is this the same Warren Buffett who opposed the president's tax plan?" said John Feliz, campaign director for Republican state Sen. Tom McClintock. "It's a let-them-eat-cake approach. This is a very wealthy person who doesn't understand the problems of a family of four earning $35,000 a year and living in Visalia, California."

Feliz is obviously living in an alternate universe where the president's tax plan didn't give guys like Buffett huge breaks while offering no relief for millions of low-income, taxpaying families.

I'm not ready to buy a "Vote for me if you want to live" t-shirt, but we could do a lot worse than Warren Buffett. Tags:

Ahhhhhnuld

Personally, I think it would be way cool to have The Terminator as governer.

Who cares if ourpoliticians are worth anything as long as they're cool?

We'll all die eventually anyway, so we might as well have some fun while we can.

Well, I don't completely believe everything I just wrote, but it was fun to write anyway.

Re blackout: the network theorists are going to have a field day with this. I can see the PRLs now...

oh, the jealousy


I think you shoud sit and watch every Arnold movie in a weekend to solidify just why he should be governor. I'm serious! Vote for him! I would if I were in the State-that-never-has-seasons, but we don't get such glorious opportunities in CT.
Please?

Re: oh, the jealousy

Actually, a best-of-Arnold movie night is tempting. If I went for the whole filmography, though, I'd have to watch such cinematic masterpieces as End of Days, Jingle All the Way, and Batman and Robin. His late-90's work may in fact convince me that he should be governor just to stop him from making movies.
