As to Arnold's Nazi comments... Who in politics doesn't admite Hitler's ability to galvanize so many so easily? But they and their critics miss several points. 1. INDIGNITY: Germany has ALWAYS had an egomania problem and their defeat after WWI was like forcing a devout Muslim to eat pork at gunpoint. They stewed in self-pity and it was just waiting for someone to give it a focus to pile the hate on. 2. SCAPEGOAT: Germany has ALWAYS had an anti-semitism problem, much of it dating from the early part of the second millenium and growing from then on. It seems mostly the sort of nonsense that we saw in South Africa before apartheid and what we see in America today. Hard working immigrants from places where such work ethics are necessary for survival doing well when transplanted to a place of opportunity and the native population grown a little laid back and in denial about why they're not doing as well. Instant resentment, hate, bigotry. Combine this with a people in religious/spirtual flux ever since their conversion from paganism to Christianity and you've got fertile ground for deep rooted irrational systematic hate with a mantle of mysticism. 3. NATURE: Humans will ALWAYS be easier to whip into a mob when they are angry and resentful, as opposed to a common good goal. Which is better, an orgasm or gunshot? Of course the orgasm is better. But will people form mobs to get sex and pleasure? No, they form mobs to pick up guns and shoot at each other and make each other miserable. Sad thing, but its the nature of humans to be more easily moved to bad things than good. Hitler took advantage of the good fortune of having all of the above line up in a social conjunction of the sort hardly ever seen all at once in one place. With it, we ended up with the history we know today. So what if people wish they could get support like that? It's an impossible wish for anyone who isn't a dedicated evil s.o.b.. Doesn't mean they're anti-semites. Heck, both of the major factions in Israel wish they could get everyone in the nation on the same page that way, but it isn't going to happen. As to groping, let's be serious about who is calling the accusations and making the noise. If Arnold was accused of groping other men's equipment at the gym, the same press would be celebrating and congratulating him for his brave lifestyle choice and he'd be the Ellen DeGeneris of the male celebrities. The press practically wants there to be graphic hardcore sex on Queer As Folk the way they talk glowingly about homosexuality. Being proudly hetero and acting on it gets him excoriated by the usual suspects. But it's a glaring hypocrisy so bad that even Estrich isn't jumping in on the group-think gang stomp. A vote for McClintock is a vote for Davis at this point and Arnold is the best the Republicans can get. Bustamante is an out and out anti-white(and everyone else) Latino racist, Davis is a patronizing lefty, and McClintock is about as galvanizing as Ruth Buzzy in a half slip. If this were CA, I'd vote Arnold. I'd vote him over the current Republican governor here.
