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!

    This is just too surreal.

    You can take the coonasas out of Louisiana, but you can’t take the Louisiana out of the coonass. I’m surprised Britney didn’t say she was going to vote for Edwin Edwards.

    Letter of the day: F
    Meme time! The letter of the day is F.

    F is for frittata,
    the perfect Arnold breakfast.
    F is for the First Ammendment, which virus-writers
    cannot plead to.
    F is for Flushing
    Meadows, flushed out by rain. Bonus F for the Fin…
