Ah-nold Is Definitely a Girly Man
By Pepper of the Daily Pepper
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger blocked Warren Beatty and Annette Bening from entering one of his campaign rallies.
In his heyday, Schwarzenegger fought off all manner of bad guys and always made a big show of being exactly the same as his stage persona. Unlike other actors, who didn't want to be stereotyped, Schwarzenegger reveled in being the tough guy both on and off the screen. He shouldn't have done that. Because Schwarzenegger has just demonstrated that he is afraid of the same guy who was in Ishtar.
If Schwarzenegger is so afraid of Beatty, what would he do if Rob Reiner, another Hollywood heavyweight who has considered throwing his hat into the ring, showed up? Reiner is a big guy who hangs out with Howard Dean. All Reiner would have to do is give a Dean yell, and Mr. Tough Guy will go scurrying right back to his hotel suite in Sacramento.
I may sound dismissive of Beatty because I think that Hollywood has done more than its fair share of hurting the liberal cause (Are you listening, Jane Fonda and Ben Affleck?). That said, Beatty's wife, Annette Bening, got in a soundbite worth sharing:
"You have to have a wristband to listen to the governor?" Bening asked. "He represents all of us, right?"
Thank you. The stage-managed Republican Dickery is about to stop, at least in California. As long as it doesn't turn into Democratic Dickery. Pam makes a good point about Schwarzenegger and Beatty: "Boy, this got ugly. What egos...oh, wait, they're actors."

You are being a bit tough on Beatty. I applaud what he and Annette have been doing throughout Ah-nold's tenure and following Ahnie's bamboozelment tour in So Cal was brilliant. He's not the only "Hollywood activist" but he's the only one sticking his neck out. The rest will just whisper their disapproval of Ah-nold assault on public education and public employees at dinner parties once they're certain it won't hurt their careers. Some may even take bolder steps by blogging about it (Arianna?) but Beatty & Annette take action - I admire that.

Have you received your Warren Beatty robo-call yet about the election?

The night of the fight, you may feel a slight sting. That's pride f*cking with you. F*ck pride. Pride only hurts, it never helps.
