Well, Light, it looks like you're going to have to write Rob Lowe into that scene now.

Yes, Max. Rob Lowe has been appointed a "high position" in the campaign. I'm not sure exactly. I think it's some kind of "Hollywood Laison". I'll see if I can find a link!

West Wing' star to help Schwarzenegger

By Andrew Gumbel in Los Angeles

16 August 2003

Rob Lowe, who played a presidential speech writer in the hit political dramaThe West Wing, is joining the real-life campaign of his fellow actor Arnold Schwarzenegger to help him become the Governor of California.

The Los Angeles Times reported yesterday that Mr Lowe, who is a Democrat while Mr Schwarzenegger is a Republican, will take a "senior position" that is yet to be defined precisely. A formal announcement is expected in a few days.

The appointment will add yet more Hollywood fire-power to a candidacy that has so far been as much about entertainment-industry public relations as it has political substance. Mr Lowe, who has a history of working on political campaigns, though never for Republicans, is a friend of Mr Schwarzenegger's wife, Maria Shriver, a television journalist and member of the Kennedy family.

His involvement may mobilise other stars - most of whom are die-hard Democrats - to support the Terminator, who is popular in the industry.

Mr Schwarzenegger's moves this week seem geared at portraying his candidacy as a bipartisan effort outside easy political definitions. He is also consulting the billionaire investor Warren Buffet, who is also a Democrat. Among Republicans, he has appointed Pete Wilson, a former Californian governor, as his campaign co-chairman, to the consternation of Latino groups who blame Mr Wilson for a series of racially divisive measures. And yesterday he brought in George Schultz, a former secretary of state to Ronald Reagan.

Big questions remain about where Mr Schwarzenegger stands on the issues, not least because he has barely talked since announcing his candidacy but has left much of the media face-time to Mr Wilson. "It's not Pete Wilson who is running for governor," said the independent candidate Arianna Huffington. "I think there's some answering to be done here."

Ms Huffington is the only other candidate to make headlines - although they have not all been complimentary as opponents made hay with therevelation that she barely paid any tax in 2001 and 2002.

Thanks for taking the time to tell me that feolola. Good Grief, and today I thought it was funny that the cell phones and parking spaces of the Democrats in New Mexico were taken away.
Thank God for California!

Rob Lowe in charge of home movies?

Arnold's percentage sunk today to two points below Bustamante.

It's a varitable Hollwood coup! It was noted that Arnold's few announcement on policy are looking suspiciously identical to the Gray Davis plan.

I think Rob Lowe may have something to do with that!

I guess getting caught making your own home porno movies is now forgotton in the new politics.
Putting together an administration based on the advice of multi-billionaires and Hollywood folk does not look good on paper let alone in action. Arnold could turn it into one of his action movies where the hero always comes out on top. Of course, that's after beating everyone up or mowing them down with some super machine gun. I actually don't have many qualms about him succeeding -- it may be refreshing and give the office a little lift. After all, Ahhnold can lift some pretty heavy weight.

Id rather vote for Arnold than Larry Flint or the porn star. What is their slogan?
"Smut in every pot"?

So true -- often the choices are between ham and Spam. In this case we have a ham (Ahhnold) and a lot of Spam. Of course, the Wizardmobile uses Spam and old soap opera scripts for fuel (this was orignally Jespah's concoction over on the old Abuzzaholics Anonymous). The rest of the candidates besides Ahhnold and Bustamante should self-destruct just fine. This mix could mean that we will have a governor elected by less than 10% of the population. How's that for democracy? Where's at home computer voting when you need it? Latest news is that some legal experts think one of the lawsuits to throw a monkey wrench into the recall election may just be upheld by a judge. Oh, what a tangled web Mr. Issa has woven. Perhaps he should be a costumer for the next Terminator movie.

Speaking of Ham and Spam, Arnold just got egged at a college appearance.

Arnold says, "He owes me bacon! You can't have Eggs without Bacon!"

I don't know about that, instead of looking like a giant condom full of doorknobs, maybe he looks more like a giant condom filled with matzo balls?

At any rate, he is getting himself into a pickle with the press -- his bowing out of the debate was a calculated political move undoubtedly dictated by his handlers and it may backfire on him.

It's back to the old Lincoln mantra of not saying much in a campaign and people thinking you are a fool in comparison to opening your mouth and proving it. There's time for him to insert his foot but why there aren't any hue and cry from his opposition (especially the conservative Repulicans) about his failure in business (his agent handles his movie role business but had nothing to do with Planet Hollywood). Maybe he'll appoint his agent into a top position in California politics since he's actually the money handler. Of course, that isn't the only one handling his financial business and I can hear it now, "He's stupid but he knows how to delegate."

Bush is working on a record for cabinet members and other cronies bailing on him. Maybe they don't like their advice filtered through his constricted brain cells.
