I smell a campaign commercial

Is it just me, or did the Governor of the fifth largest economy in the world just compare this big state he’s running to the motorcycle he just crashed? In case you missed it, this was the joke Schwarzenegger opened his budget announcement yesterday with:

“A car pulled out in front of me; it was right there in front. And I just couldn’t make a decision which way to go,” he said. “I knew, I knew if I would turn left, that the Republicans would get mad. And if I turned right, my wife would get mad, so I just crashed right into the car. I said, ‘This is a safer thing to do.'”

The irony of this statement is not lost on us, but unfortunately for the 33 million people who have to live with the consequences of his poor navigation as our leader, we think it was lost on Schwarzenegger!
