So now American politics has been reduced to foisting a muscle-bound, Austrian actor (and I use the term loosely) being taken seriously as a candidate for the governership of California.

I am stunned that a man who's greatest contribution of society is a barely intelligible line, "Hasta la vista, baby" in the running for governor in one of the most powerful state's in the nation, despite its economic woes of the moment.

Christ! How can one take our Constitution, our system of government or the electorate seriously when $3,500 and 65 signatures is all it takes to climb to the heights of power and, in essence, rule a state - any state - but in this case a state the size and complexity of California

What a farce! "I will make sure that every school child will have an after-school program to attend." Another wonderful platform; "I will clean up Sacramento and it's hasta la vista Gray."

God help us. Wasn't it bad enough when we elected a Borax soap salesman who's biggest claim to fame the co-star of a film that featured a chimpanze president of the United States.

Of course, come to think of it, we now have an Ivy League airhead as leader of the greatest, most powerful nation in the world. Oh God! We're all doomed!

I suggest you do whatever it is you always wanted to do, that one thing you always dreamed of doing before you die, and do it soon.

"Hasta la vista, baby."
