Schwarzenegger Pimps For Bush

Governor Schwarzenegger won't be caught dead with George W. Bush here in California, but he will do it halfway across the country. The LA Times has the story here:

The governor, popular in California, had expressed some reluctance earlier this year to campaign for Bush outside the state, saying he needed to tend to state business. But Schwarzenegger said Tuesday that he wanted "to be a support system to him."

Schwarzenegger is far too much of a political weenie to be calling anyone else a "girlie man". The guy will not take a public stand on anything that isn't already popular in California. If he's for something unpopular, he will only support them if he's 2,000 miles away.
