Maria Shuns Arnie in Bed for RNC Speech

When I said in a previous post: I have to admit it was so disheartening to see Maria Shriver at the RNC I certainly didn't think I'd ever feel vindicated. Lysistrata lives? Politics make irksome bedfellows sometimes.

Schwarzenegger Says Pro-Bush Speech Cost Him Sex

Tue Oct 19,11:50 AM ET Oddly Enough - Reuters

MONTEREY, Calif. (Reuters) - California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said on Monday that his speech backing President Bush at the Republican Convention in August resulted in a dramatic cold shoulder from his wife Maria Shriver, a member of the very Democratic Kennedy family.

"Well, there was no sex for 14 days," Schwarzenegger told former White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta in an on-stage conversation in front of 1,000 people. "Everything comes with side effects."

The crowd roared with laughter, but the governor may have been serious: he has said little in public to back fellow Republican Bush since then. Panetta, a Democrat, had asked him how Shriver, whose uncle was U.S. President John F. Kennedy, had reacted to his praised but partisan prime-time convention speech.

The governor referred to Shriver several times in the 90-minute conversation.

"I don't know why I watched the presidential debates," he said. "If I want to watch a smart liberal Democrat and a Republican leader argue, all we have to do is go out to dinner. They were lucky. They only had to do it three times." more here--funny stuff


I like Arnold's sense of humor about himself.

Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
