Arnold - his popularity is on the skids

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The new Field Poll says that if the election for governor were held right now, well, the cigar-smoking dude with this blog would not win re-election.

The guvenator would be terminated.

What happened? Not much.

And that's exactly what the problem is. Even in trying to win the recall election, Arnold made promises he couldn't keep, made others he had no intention of keeping and basically had no real plan to govern California, other than to take a few swats at unions, teachers, and nurses.

He's one tough guy, all right.

Somewhere between winning the election and today, he managed to piss off just about every constituency except the ultra-wealthy. And the ultra-wealthy don't poll well - they just spend all their dough to make sure the election turns out right.

But what has also hurt Arnold is when people really listen to him. And I don't mean the Austrian accent (which is largely fake), I mean his ideas. He doesn't seem to really have any. And apparently his staff doesn't have any either because when he speaks without a script, he sounds like, well, an actor speaking without a script.

So, Mr. Guvenator, maybe it's time to start renegotiating that movie career. The studios just remade Bewitched. Maybe they can find a suitable remake for you, too. The Terminator schtick is getting a little old anyway.

But I sure can't think of any movies I would pay to go see you in, except maybe The Long Goodbye.

    1. Arnold is such a bad joke. When asked recently about the protests at the commence speech for his alma mater, he said and I quote, "protests, that was nothing compared to the protests I heard when I was going to marry into Kennendy clan." Yuck it up big guy, you are on your way out. Come on California find a real person to lead your state out of this mess.

    8. Hello fellow fisherman,

      Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

      Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

      Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

      Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

      I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

      You will be one of the first to try it out.

      Gone Fishin',

      Neil
