HARD ASS NOT HARD CORE

Steven Taylor, citing Rush Limbaugh’s criticisms today, says that Arnie is not a hardcore conservative. According to Andrew Sullivan, however, he is a hard-ass Republican.

All this has me very confused. I don’t recall any of those distinctions in my political theory classes.

    You just like typing “hard-ass Republican” 😉

    I can not tell a lie: It’s true. Especially coming from Andrew Sullivan.

    I saw T3 and Arnie did not use a body double. He is in his 50s and I can say that he is a “hard ass” Republican. I wish governors could have running mates because that female robot would be very cool. She would present a “softer” side.

  4. Arnold’s holding up pretty damned well. I checked for scientific reasons when I saw the film.

    That isn’t why I’m (so far) supporting him, though. Really.
