Schwarzenegger Basically Admits He’s A Democrat

This post exists purely as an excuse to run this picture againWhat is with this liberal Hollywood Kennedy-in-law, governor Arnold Schwarzenegger? Can he not even pretend to be interested in agreeing with his fellow Republicans on the simplest of conservative precepts, such as the Known Fact that the president is a demon hell-turd sent from the Future in order to socialize our mammograms?

“When it comes to effort, [Obama] should get a straight A,” Schwarzenegger told CNN Chief National Correspondent John King in an interview that aired Sunday on State of the Union.

“He’s out there with tremendous energy and he’s selling his ideas. And he has great enthusiasm.”

Jesus christ dude not even actual libtards like Obama that much these days. Clearly the governor is angling for an administration job, which he’ll accept once he’s finished gay marrying the entire state of California.

    Well, I don’t mind you running the picture again, as it is a reminder of what I don’t want my meat to look like before I cook it.

  2. ManchuCandidate

    Something rather ironic about a man who inspired wingnuts to attempt to put in an amendment to allow non-US Americuh born to run for preznit supporting a man who inspired the VERY same wingnuts to demand a US birf certifik8.

    When you look at a 13-year old boy and the words “fawn-like” no longer come to mind, you could be losing your grip on Republicanism.

  4. ChernobylSoup v2

    Well gosh… who can I call a Girly Man for disagreeing with me if I don’t have a muscular Man Man like Arnold backing me up anymore?

  5. Redhead

    Uggg. Does anyone honestly find that attractive? All I can think of is the “Seinfeld” episode where Kramer puts oil on his skin in the hot tub, and Newman keeps seeing him as a turkey.

  6. Herman the German

    I think Californians are very lucky for having Schwarzenegger as governor.
    He is quite sensible compared to other Austrian hillbillies.

  7. Monsieur Grumpe

    Yeah, well, this “A” comes from a guy whose wife puts his drawings on the refrigerator to show how proud she is.

  8. Berkeley Bear

    They left out the part where he said Obama got a C on definition and needed to work on shredding his calves if he ever wanted to be respected at Mr. Olympia competitions.

    You watch, Glenn Beck will take this and start finding hidden messages in Schwarzenegger’s name. After all, with a name including “black” and something that sounds bad in English must mean he’s secretly got a deep seated hatred of whites and white culture.

  9. depraved indifference engine

    [re=482771]ManchuCandidate[/re]: And the same wingnuts who decided that, although they didn’t bother to show up for the previous gubernatorial election, that they should turn out in droves to overturn its outcome and install Arnold instead. Wingnuts.

  10. dr.giraud

    I think it’s important to rerun the pic periodically, if only to remind us that the Germans WON World War 2.

    [re=482793]Berkeley Bear[/re]: Probably “yeager” which means hunter, so his name is “Black Hunter” in German (probably in reference to the Schwarzenwald or black forest, but don’t let that impede the snark).
    The thing I’ll always remember about Ahnold is that during his brief stint in the Austrian Army he was “tank racing” with a buddy and ended up driving through somebodies farm house and over their Mercedes. Apparently “Bitte” was insufficient and he become the recipient of a Big Chicken Dinner from the Wermacht, only to marry a Kennedy and become “Prezindent of Kalifoornia”.
    So who’s laughing now, Field Marshall?

    Oh, and as far as the picture, could Wonkette dig up something more contemporary? Schwarzie’s recent photos, with his parchment-like Revenge of the Mummy skin pulled tight by too many cosmetic procedures and creepy-looking lips that look decidedly off-color are much easier to make fun of than that old photo of him as a hunk of swelled man-mean posing for a Leni Reisenthal flick.

    [re=482823]dijetlo[/re]:

    Not that I want to reduce the snark level in this forum since I feed on it just like Cheney suckles himself on the blood of innocents, but Schwarzenegger said that his surname means blacksmith. Well, this is according to Schwarzenegger so take it accordingly.

  14. Woodwards Friend

    Didn’t he do a movie where he was preggers like Bristol? Can you imagine that? A pregnant man? This is not my America. Buy gold.

  15. NJB

    No, no – you can tell by that hand/arm gesture that Ahnuld is indeed a Republican. An almost naked Republican. I got that from his almost nakedness.

  16. I-man

    He is european after all. Basically what defines Libtards and Conservatards over their is their stance on Social spending and immigration. Hell, Arnie is a damn near moderate Democrat that leans slightly to the left with a Republican registration.

  17. SayItWithWookies

    Hell, Arnold called the president a “great communicator” — there’s some burn-at-the-stake sacrilege right there.

  18. dijetlo

    [re=482868]Citizen Kang[/re]: Could be, I don’t want him parking his panzer on my hoopty so in all future correspondence I will make that correction.

  19. Bowdoin

    [re=482782]Redhead[/re]: The proof that anything can be sold to the American public is in that Seinfeld. If you watched it, you lose the high ground to laugh at teabagger twits for their idiot choices.

  20. smitallica

    [re=482823]dijetlo[/re]: Actually, I have seen Arnold in interviews say his last name means “black plowman.”But “Austrian hillbilly” is a looser yet more accurate translation.

  21. Bing Shalimar

    [re=482927]smitallica[/re]: When Schwarzenegger mentioned this to David Letterman on his show, Letterman responded, “I’m sure the Kennedys are thrilled about having a black plowman marry into the family.”

  22. chaste everywhere

    [re=482786]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: [re=482911]Bowdoin[/re]: He still puts his drawers on one glute at a time.

  23. RoscoePColtraine

    Schwarzenegger is Austrian? I thought he was Australian. Never could get those two straight. Why would they make two separate nations so identical in name form? To confound and confuse I suppose.

  24. Scooter

    New rule for anyone who grew up speaking German: Never lift your stiff right arm above shoulder height.

    Versteh?

  25. Bowdoin

    [re=483129]RoscoePColtraine[/re]: Well, I do remember Saddam named his country Iraq because he thought that blunderbush would order bombing of his near-named neighbor by mistake due to innate illiteracy. History!
