Hey Arnold...

So, Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger had a little motorcycle accident did he? They say he’s fine, just some stitches, but wait what this…he was riding a motorcycle he doesn’t have a license for? That would mean…that the governor...has broken the law!

We really shouldn’t be surprised, I mean, if Kindergarten Cop and Jingle All the Way don’t constitute crimes against humanity what the hell does? What is the point of being as rich as Arnold is said to be if you don’t have someone who is paid to drive you around? OK, so maybe he likes riding his motorcycle, the sun in his face, his pectoral muscles flapping in the breeze. Fine… then go out to some wide-open space where he can’t hit anything and stay the hell out of traffic.

Ultimately, I think you have to blame the special effects industry for Arnold becoming governor in the first place. Look at it this way, without special effects Arnold makes a few Conan the Barbarian movies, maybe a Hercules flick or two and then he disappears off the face of the earth. Instead, because of special effects, films like The Terminator and Predator become hugely successful and the next thing you know…boom…Arnold is sitting in the governor’s mansion.

Thanks Hollywood, we owe you one. What’s even worse is that it’s probably not over. When his term is over some prestigious California university will likely give him a job teaching…though I’m guessing it won’t have anything to do with motorcycles…or acting.
