Bulworth v.Terminator

Warren Beatty seems to be testing the waters for a run for Governor against the Ahnold. Either that or he’s just trying to knock him down a few more pegs so he’s a softer target for Angelides. For those of you who don’t know, the current Democratic challenger to my Governor is Phil Angelides, the California State Treasurer and father of a Quincy House Junior. Smart man, would be a good Governor. What he couldn’t do, however, is pull off the amazingly funny and pointed hit on Schwarzenegger that Beatty did last week speaking at a UC Berkeley grad school graduation:

“cut down the photo ops, the fake events, the fake issues, the fake crowds, the scapegoats, the ‘language problems,’ the broken promises, the ‘Minutemen,’ the prevarications and put some sunlight on some taxes.(more in expanded post)

“It’s become time to define a Schwarzenegger Republican . A Schwarzenegger Republican is a Bush Republican who says he’s a Schwarzenegger Republican,” Beatty said. “Can’t we accept that devotion to the building of the body politic is more complex and a little more sensitive than devotion to body-building?”

Witheringng! I love it. Beatty’s a smart guy and an experienced political operative. Who knows whether or not he’d be a good Governor, but I wouldn’t mind a few more of those speeches…
