Arnold Schwarzenegger, the thinking man's Jesse Ventura, is running for governor of California in that state's recall election. The Austrian-born actor announced his candidacy during a taping of NBC's The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. If he wins the election, it will be his first elected office since serving as Mr. Universe in 1972.
Everybody with $3500 seems to be getting into the race. Gary (Diff'rent Strokes) Coleman is even applying. I'm not kidding. Somebody in Hollywood has to have started a documentary on this race, right? On the bright side, all the money rolling around should be a boost for television commercial producers. Can we expect Tom Hanks to enter now, too? Or, can only Republican celebrities run for office? Perhaps California will create a ballot initiative detailing which celebrities can participate in the democratic process.
Personally, I am looking forward to the impending revelations about his womanizing. Nothing is hotter than reading about celebrity sexual encounters from second-hand sources involving third-rate celebrities. My newspaper will mirror the transcript of an E! True Hollowood Story.
