1. I agree
Arnold is what he is.
It's so silly they are making a big deal out of this when people are dying because of the current pResident.The media should focus on the Bush lies instead of an actor playing a politician.

2. All women and gay men, take note of how the run-of-the-mill
Murkin feels about you. Anything female repulses them, unless it is out and out sex.

And men wonder why women don't give a shit anymore. And any woman answering the poll who said he shouldn't apologize has a lot of waking up to do, IMHO.

4. what does that have to do with anything?
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 03:41 PM by noiretblu
the skit was commentary on the very attitudes gropy promotes. he is the governor of california now: he should act and speak accordingly. imagine if the situation was reversed...conservatives would be screaming bloody murder, as they did over whoppi's "joke." (note: whoppi goldberg is not an "elected" representative) democrats need to learn that language matters because the facists have been winning their cultural wars with language, and they are still doing it.

7. thin skinned or not

You can stop laughing now.....I do know better. I am just sick of Republicans getting away with this shit.

8. I'm not personally offended by the comment...
But I think it just shows what a joke Ahnold is, and it pisses me off that people are so stupid that he has as much support as he does. It's just one more example of style over substance, which gives us discussions of candidate's hair, Ahnold, Mike Ditka, Kerry's botox, Al Gore's wardrobe, etc.

Of course, around 40% of Americans still think Bush is doing a great job, so I shouldn't be surprised.

12. Those bleeding heart faggot lovers
How about that? How are you going to like that one for the next 4 months, because that's where we're headed. First Kerry & Edwards, now Arnold saying Democrats are girlie-men, gay marriage as ballot issues on many state ballots. Yep, this is the new Willie Horton.

Get it now?

(Mods, I hope you will allow that to stay because I don't know how else to make the point. Sorry to anyone I offended, people just have to face reality sometimes)

13. It's not that I think the comment is acceptable...
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 04:43 PM by livinginphotographs
I just figure we need to consider the source. He does nothing but make himself look stupid by saying things like this.

The f-word (the one referring to homosexuals) is extremely offensive to me. Girlie-men just sounds ridiculous. It's like when I get called a cracker, I don't get offended, because it's a pretty stupid insult.

Hey, you're within your right to be offended. I'm not saying that you're not. But just like with Cheney's little outburst, I think you're beating against a brick wall. You're right; this kind of behavior is here to stay.

And I don't think your post should be deleted, because you made a decent point. I'm sorry though if I just can't get all up in arms about some ignorant meathead making a stupid comment.

on edit: Let me clarify - in answer to the question posed in the thread title: Do I think he should apologize? Yes. Do I think he will? No.

6. I think he should apologize for not having anything more original to say
Come on Arnold, these are Hollywood lines from 15 years ago.
