Politics: The Governator
I still remember the night Arnold Schwarzenegger won the California recall election. It definitely seemed surreal - the star of "Terminator 2" and "Total Recall" running an entire state, and an important one at that? Some saw it as a farce, others as a chance for real reform.
Now Arnie is up for re-election, and some the ads are very subtly hilarious, regardless of your political persuasion. When Arnold was fighting the Devil in "End of Days," I betcha he didn't plan on fighting budget deficits 7 years later. Seriously, I want just one campaign ad where they play all the catchphrases from Arnie's movies to attack his opponent, the ultra-nerdy Phil Angelides.
