Reuters: Schwarzenegger says Democratic win is healthy

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, one of few Republicans to shine at the mid-term elections, said on Thursday the Democratic victories were healthy for U.S. politics.

“I think it is good that there are new ideas and new blood because Washington was stuck. They could not move forward, not much was accomplished; I think it was terrible,” he told reporters on a trip to Mexico.

Former bodybuilder and star of the “Terminator” action movies, Schwarzenegger won reelection by a landside on Tuesday after distancing himself from President George W. Bush and adopting moderate positions on some issues.

Easy for the Terminator to say.

Let’s hope he stays GOP enough to terminate Senator Barbara Boxer in four years.

California Election 2006 Watch: California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger Wins Re-election

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger kisses his wife Maria Shriver after his re-election, in Beverly Hills. November 7, 2006.

Reuters: Schwarzenegger gains landslide California win

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger won re-election by a landslide after distancing himself from fellow Republican President George W. Bush and taking a moderate stance, results on Wednesday showed.

The former Hollywood star first elected three years ago in an unprecedented recall vote beat his Democratic opponent, State Treasurer Phil Angelides, by 17 points with 99.6 percent of Tuesday’s vote counted.

“What a fantastic evening; I love doing sequels,” Schwarzenegger told supporters in Beverly Hills. “But this without any doubt is my favorite sequel.”

The star of the “Terminator” films scrapped a confrontational style that served him well as a champion bodybuilder and in movies but led to a complete defeat in a special initiative election last year.

A humbled Schwarzenegger, 59, turned on his charm, no longer taunted Democratic legislators as “girlie men” and backed a series of bipartisan laws, including reducing the state’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Arnold made “NICE” and was rewarded by his re-election.

Will it continue?

Perhaps

But, now the Governator actually has to GOVERN…..

Stay tuned…….

Xinhua: California election turnout expected to be modest

Overall, turnout is expected to be modest with roughly 8.7 million – or 55 percent – of California’s 15.8 million registered voters likely to cast ballots by the time polls close at 8 p.m., according to California Secretary of State Bruce McPherson.

Senator Joe Lieberman Watch: Final JOEMENTUM

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Election 2006, Joe Lieberman

liebermannovember6aweb

Sen. Joe Lieberman, D-Conn., left, marches in the Connecticut Veterans Day Parade with U.S. Rep. Nancy Johnson, right, and radio personality Brad Davis, center, in Hartford, Conn., Sunday, Nov. 5, 2006.

Quinnipiac University: November 6, 2006 – Lieberman Has 12-Point Lead In Connecticut, Quinnipiac University Poll Finds

Incumbent Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman holds a 50 – 38 percent likely voter lead over Democratic candidate Ned Lamont, with 8 percent for Republican Alan Schlesinger, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Five percent are undecided.

This compares to a 49 – 37 percent Sen. Lieberman lead over Lamont, with 8 percent for Schlesinger in a November 1 poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh- pe-ack) University.

In this latest survey, Lieberman leads Lamont 79 – 3 percent among likely Republican voters, with 16 percent for Schlesinger, and 52 – 35 – 7 percent among independent voters, while likely Democratic voters back Lamont 66 – 27 percent.

“For Connecticut voters, Sen. Joseph Lieberman’s experience and record outweighed challenger Ned Lamont’s position on the war in Iraq,” said Quinnipiac University Poll Director Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D.

“It appears that Ned Lamont peaked in August and that Alan Schlesinger was never able to convince his fellow Republicans that he deserved their support.”

The Fat Lady has SUNG in this race.

The NUTROOTS have lost yet another race and Ned Lamont has WASTED millions of his own funds.

Will Lieberman switch to the GOP?

Perhaps……..or switch to the Bush Administration and a GOP Governor will appoint a GOP Senator.

Stay tuned………

Hugh Hewitt highlights Lamont’s desperation – calling Joe Lieberman INSANE.

Please………..

Senator George Allen Watch: James Webb’s Weird World

Posted Posted in Election 2006, Election 2006, Politics

allenoctober26hweb

Matt Drudge has the following press release from the George Allen campaign:

ALLEN’S REVENGE: EXPOSES UNDERAGE SEX SCENES IN OPPONENT’S NOVELS

Thu Oct 26 2006 20:05:37 ET

Sen. George Allen, R-VA, unleashed a press release late Thursday that exposed his rival’s fiction writing, which includes graphic underage sex scenes.

The press release, as provided by the Allen Campaign:

WEBB’S WEIRD WORLD

The Author’s Disturbing Writings Show a Continued Pattern of Demeaning Women

· Some of Webb’s writings are very disturbing for a candidate hoping to represent the families of Virginians in the U.S. Senate.

· Many excellent books about the United States military and wartime service accomplish their purposes, and even win awards, without systematically demeaning women, and without dehumanizing women, men and even children.

· Webb’s novels disturbingly and consistently – indeed, almost uniformly – portray women as servile, subordinate, inept, incompetent, promiscuous, perverted, or some combination of these. In novel after novel, Webb assigns his female characters base, negative characteristics. In thousands of pages of fiction penned by Webb, there are few if any strong, admirable women or positive female role models.

Why does Jim Webb refuse to portray women in a respectful, positive light, whether in his non-fiction concerning their role in the military, or in his provocative novels? How can women trust him to represent their views in the Senate when chauvinistic attitudes and sexually exploitive references run throughout his fiction and non-fiction writings?

· Most Virginians and Americans would find passages such as those below shocking, especially coming from the pen of someone who seeks the privilege of serving in the United States Senate, one of the highest offices in the land:

– Lost Soldiers: “A shirtless man walked toward them along a mud pathway. His muscles were young and hard, but his face was devastated with wrinkles. His eyes were so red that they appeared to be burned by fire. A naked boy ran happily toward him from a little plot of dirt. The man grabbed his young son in his arms, turned him upside down, and put the boy’s penis in his mouth.”

Bantam Books, NY, 1st Edition, 2001, (hard cover), page 333. Quote is from para. 10,.Chap. 34.
– Something to Die For: “Fogarty . . . watch[ed] a naked young stripper do the splits over a banana. She stood back up, her face smiling proudly and her round breasts glistening from a spotlight in the dim bar, and left the banana on the bar, cut in four equal sections by the muscles of her vagina.”

Avon Books, New York, 1992 (Mass-Market paperback edition), p. 35
Quote is from para. 29, Chap. 2 “The South China Sea,”, Section 2

– A Country Such as This: “[He] could see Jawbone and Ashley Asthmatic [two guards at a Vietnamese prison camp] napping together in the grass. They faced inward, their arms entwined. It looked like they were masturbating each other. It didn’t surprise him. … It was common to see men holding hands, embracing, playing with each other. Some of them [the guards] had wanted him. He could tell in those evanescent moments between his bao cao bow, the obligatory deference when a guard entered his cell, and the first word or blow that followed it… Quick, grinding voices, turgid with repressed passion. An exploratory reaching of the hand near his groin…”

Page numbers are the same in the Naval Institute Press (paperback) edition, 1983. Quote is from fifth para, Part 5 “A Country Such As This,” Chap. 24, Section 1
– A Sense of Honor: “Nurse Goodbody, dark and voluptuous (Lenahan had forgotten her actual name, it was something long and Italian), was a bedtime friend to many of the doctors in Bethesda. She had hinted to Lenahan that she simply could not contain herself. Doctors tending to patients, she explained, aroused her. Morphine Mary (again Lenahan could not remember her exact name) was a thin, nervous drill sergeant type, a disciplinarian who did not allow her patients even to complain. Lenahan was convinced that Morphine Mary did not even sleep with her husband. She wasn’t bad looking, he mused again, staring at her thin frame. If she’d just get laid every now and then she’d mellow out and stop being such a damn witch.” (p. 164) (Lenahan brings Goodbody home with him and has sex, pp. 188-190)

– Something to Die For: “[Fogarty] has been thinking of the firm, springy skin and the sweet smells of a young Filipina woman named Maria in whose bed he had spent three nights almost twenty years ago. . . . She was a deliciously bad young woman. . . . On the second night, he had brought her a box of Godiva chocolates . . . . he had awakened to find her in the bathroom, sitting on the toilet with her knees underneath her chin, eating chocolates and counting her rosary beads as she prayed.”

Quote is from third para in Chapter 2 “South China Sea,”, Part 2

– Something to Die For: “We’re on our way to becoming the world’s recreational center, a nation [USA] not to be taken seriously. Where are we still the undisputed leader? Music. Movies. Fast food. Drugs. . . . the billboards fifty years from now as you come over the bridge and stop at the tollbooths outside Manhattan: A smiling beautiful naked woman, and the sign saying AMERICAN ASS IS OUR MOST IMPORTANT PRODUCT.”
