Here in LaLaLand we're all abuzz with the news of our former governor's having admitted to fathering a child a decade or so ago by a woman not his wife. Well, now we understand why his wife moved out.
Okay. Here's the thing. I don't much care if Arnold or anyone else sleeps around, fathers children all over the globe or anything else. That type of behavior wouldn't influence whether or not I voted for him. Here's what matters. The lies. The deceit.
I can't imagine anyone actually campaigning by saying things like: I'm a two-timing son of a bitch. I cheat on my wife. I've got kids all over the planet. But I will be the best governor you can imagine.
Wow! That would be something. I might even consider voting for a guy like that.
So, Arnold, you lied -- to an entire state but especially to your wife.
We deserved better. Certainly she did.
Next time you run for something, tell it like it is.
