Hard Pass: Schwarzenegger Considered Contender for CA US Senate Seat

Pay higher taxes. Watch Rachel Maddow. Colonoscopy.  See Trump naked.

These are things on the list of stuff I would rather do than have Arnold Schwarzenegger as a US Senator.

It was reported today in Politico that the Former-Governor of the Golden State is being considered as a viable candidate to run for Senate for the projected-vacant seat of Dianne Feinstein.  Feinstein will be 38,324 years old in 2018 (kidding, she will be 85), is expected to retire.  With Trump in the White House, no democrat is looking forward to the prospect of sitting in a minority party seat in the Senate.

“Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger — the “Terminator” action hero who made “I’ll be back” one of filmdom’s most iconic phrases — may be mulling a political comeback, according to several GOP political insiders in California.

The prospect of Schwarzenegger’s return to elected politics in a 2018 U.S. Senate run — possibly as an independent — is generating increasing buzz in state Republican circles, fueled by the former governor’s seeming ability to get under the skin of President Donald Trump on social media.

The president’s caustic tweets about Schwarzenegger, the recent host of “Celebrity Apprentice,” and their running feud has sparked talk that the intensely competitive Schwarzenegger — a seven-time Mr. Olympia world bodybuilding champ — may be interested in more than merely a verbal posedown with Trump.”

I myself, am not a fan of Trump, but the old “enemy of my enemy is my friend” saying definitely doesn’t apply here.  Schwarzenegger was a disaster of a Governor.  He destroyed the Republican Party on his way out the door.  He landed us with AB 32 (Global Warming bill), Prop 14 (Top Two Primary – eliminating GOP candidates from contention for several races), and played political favors with the father of a murderer in arranging for the commuting of his sentence.

He saddled us with debt and higher deficits, raised our taxes, and gave us the political atmosphere that has given us Jerry “Coo Coo for Choo Choo” Brown, Gavin “Douche-om” Newsom, and Kevin “Shut up Woman” De Leon.  Not only is what he’s done to the state unforgivable, he’s been unapologetic about it.

Arnold… Get to the Choppa. You’re not wanted here. We hope we don’t see you at the party, Richter. Consider this the Divorce. You’re Fired. We won’t “Chill”.  Hasta La Vista. Don’t Be Back.
