What a moron. Really.

What kind of democratically elected public official uses derogatory language targeted at a specific group in a public address? It's disgusting that The Governator would use the term "girlie men" to deride his political adversaries. What is he implying - that girlie men make poor political decisions? No, it's that gay men should not be respected. This, on a nationally televised speech. He's done this before, and knows it pisses people off. But I guess we know that the Republican party doesn't give a shit about the queer vote, or about queer people at all.

If Ahhhnold had gotten up there and said those people were lazy cotton pickers or wetbacks or greedy Jews, he would have gotten strung up. But picking on gay men is fine. And you know, his speech was vetted by the Republican powers that be. They all think bashing gays is they way to lead America.

Can we just get rid of Bush now? I'm so sick of this facist administration.

sadly much of this election campaign has been spent more on rallying hate than discussing actual issues. = (

Well, I have to say that the governor is showing his true colors. I, too, watched the speech and found it both offensive and disappointing.

For a brief moment I actually had believed that he was a "people's governor" and wanted to be above "politics as usual". Clearly, he's just as partisan as the others.

I'm thinking "one-term Arnold" now.

I can't watch the convention. I found myself screaming at it. When I nearly threw my sandle at my precious TV, I decided to watch "The Simpsons."

A friend of mine who happens to be black said, "If Bush is re-elected I'll be picking cotton." I looked at her and said, "And if he has his way I'll be helping you."
