Arnold on O’Reilly

Rich Lowry at The Corner has some thoughts on Arnold’s ten minute or so interview with O’Reilly last night. I saw maybe about half of it, and I agree with Lowry: it was a silly performance, embarassing; I thought the guy was smoking something, he couldn’t stop talking and what he said was mostly silly. If this is an indication of how his mind and mouth really works, he should drop out of the race. Here is Lowry:

"I thought he was laughably bad last night-literally. He seemed faintly ridiculous, very uptight and very committed to his platitudes. When he implausibly said-twice-that his feelings were hurt by being dis-invited to that Hispanic event, I couldn’t help snickering. His answer about running his Hummer on hydrogen-or whatever he was trying to say-was inadvertently funny. And his ’I still have to study border control’ answer to the question about militarizing the border may have worked a couple of weeks ago, but he really needs to have answers to important policy questions. Maybe my judgment’s off because I’m a jaded pundit, but he doesn’t seem to have advanced any from the level of his ’Tonight Show’ performance, and may be getting worse..."

Is this not the candidate Peter was certain would win the election just two weeks ago? Politics can be a dynamic institution, and this shows just how quirky this election is and shall remain until October 7.

"This is your mond on steroids!"

Sen. Tom McClintock is the "Great White Hope" for California. Wonder why "Conan, the Chicken Man" ducked a "one-on-one" debate a the GOP California Convention this weekend?
