Arnold: Close the Borders

He might have phrased his meaning a bit more accurately and more tactfully, but for crying out loud, this is the guy who couldn't articulate the simple line "Then consider this a divorce" in Total Recall.*

As Mickey Kaus has been saying, there is an awful lot of political goodwill to be scooped up by anyone with the guts to say what a majority of Americans believe.

Once again: Immigrants-- not bad
Illegal immigrants -- also not bad, although acting illegally (in an understandable fashion)
Honest debate over this issue -- required; and if it takes a goofy muscleman to start it, that's fine by me

* And they actually showed that line in all the commercials for the movie, and even after hearing it six billion times, I still wasn't sure what the hell he was saying.

Gob-Smacking Stunner Update: I forgot to mention. You were probably all on tenterhooks wondering about the Democrats' reaction to Arnold's statement. You were all scratching your heads thinking, "Gee, what way will they come down on this? It's so hard to guess."

Well, be perplexed no more.

Democrats were quick to react to the governor's statement with outrage.

I hate to be all, well, male and everything, but you know, just because you say things like "I'm outraged" or "gob-smakingly vile" and all that juiced-up emotional language... well, what the hell does that really count for? Who cares about someone's emotional reaction to a statement?


If the Dems want to de-feminize themselves and maybe get a bigger share of the male vote, it would behoove them to stop going into histrionics worthy of He Who Shall Not Be Named.

Who has time for this kind of drama?

The Democratic Party

We're bitchy and high-maintenance. Now run out to the store and buy us some bon-bons or we'll call up our sisters and say bad things about you.
