ENDORSEMENTS YOU DON’T WANT
Matt Drudge reports a couple of strange ones. First, Pat Robertson has come out for Arnold–on Pat Buchanan’s show, no less:
Pat Buchanan: LET ME TAKE ANOTHER PROMINENT CANDIDATE, ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER. HE IS PRO ABORTION HE IS PRO GAY RIGHTS, HE’S GOT A LIFESTYLE WE COULD CALL BODYBUILDIER LIFESTYLE THAT YOU’VE BEEN READING ABOUT PAT ROBERTSON SHOULD CHRISTIANS IN GOOD CONSCICENCE, CAN THEY VOTE FOR ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER?
Pat Robertson: WELL YOU KNOW, I’M A BODY BUILDER. I DO SOME PRETTY HEAVY WEIGHTLIFTING, SO I THINK THE WEIGHTLIFTERS OF THE WORLD NEED TO UNITE. I TELL YOU WHAT THOSE GUYS IN CALIFORNIA COULD USE A BIG BRUISER TO KNOCK SOME HEADS TOGETHER. I MEAN THEY’RE OUT OF CONTROL OVER THERE. SO WHAT ARE THEY GONNA DO? I MEAN YOU GONNA HAVE BUSTAMANTE WHO IS SORT OF THE GOVERNOR GRAY DAVIS LITE? THEY DONT WANT ANYMORE DAVIS, SO WHO ELSE YOU GONNA PUTT IN? I THINK YOU DONT HAVE ANYBODY ELSE THAT’S COMING UP ON THE RADAR SO THE OTHER ALTERNATIVE IS JUST STAY HOME.
Robertson, a body builder. Who knew? And a pragmatist besides.
Meanwhile, Britney Spears has endorsed President Bush on Buchanan’s old show:
CARLSON: A lot of entertainers have come out against the war in Iraq. Have you?
SPEARS: Honestly, I think we should just trust our president in every decision that he makes and we should just support that, you know, and be faithful in what happens.
CARLSON: Do you trust this president?
SPEARS: Yes, I do.
CARLSON: Excellent. Do you think he’s going to win again?
SPEARS: I don’t know. I don’t know that.
Her analysis is quite engaging. And she’s a body builder, too!
