Heh heh heh, the GOP is getting scared of Schwarzenegger's new plan. Say what you will, but the guy is growing on me.

I actually, honestly like the Govenator. I don't like the way he was elected, but he's doing better than exected. Of course, I'm for the All Predator Gubanatorial Ticket (tm).

However, I don't support changing the constitution so he can run for President. We had a war to break away from a crazy German guy (although Arnie is Austrian). There's no reason why it should ever be changed. There's precisely one job in the US that no foreign national can ever have, and I think that's pretty fair.

Perle had his own barbs, too. He began his opening comments in the 11/2-hour debate by saying Democrats "looked at the Democratic Party and chose a physician to lead them."


wait, how is that a barb? I mean it's not like the Republican Senate Majority Leader is a doctor or anything.

People playing the game weren't told about the clues, but brain scans revealed that they soon figured it out. The scanner showed that after playing the game for a while, just seeing the blue dash was enough to trigger this part of the brain.

I hope the participants in the study at least got a treat lever to push for their pains.
