If you knew, eight years ago — when you spent about a week-and-a-half jokingly referring to the newly-inaugurated California governor as "The Governator" before that got really tired and annoying — that it would ultimately lead to a sub-par version of Judge Dredd, would you have still done it? Was it worth it?
Ex-California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger announced his return to movies Monday, saying a film version of his much-publicized cartoon project The Governator is in the works.
"First will come (The Governator) comic books, then a (cartoon) TV series and after that we will develop the games and then a movie," Schwarzenegger told a packed room of international journalists at global TV market MipTV in Cannes. "Maybe then we'll be back in Cannes for that."
I don't know for sure what the plot of The Governator is going to be, but I have a pretty good idea of what it's going to be, and I hate it.
Do you know what would be cool, though? If, like, an unstoppable killing machine was sent back in time to the year 2003 with express orders to find and stop the person who invented the name "Governator."
I'm not talking about a movie.

* Hillary Clinton's approval rating at all-time high. I'll bet a lot of the country wishes she had won the Democratic candidacy. Then they could've still been hating her.
* Florida GOP chastise Democratic for using the word "uterus" on the statehouse floor. Not surprising actually, if you consider the fact that "uterus" is a scientific term.
* "Sexy" Mitch McConnell calls Tea Party "reasonable."
* Arnold Schwarzenegger and Stan Lee team up to turn eight-year-old lazy joke into terrible-selling comic book.

Not that I actually want to disabuse him of his notions, but I don't think that George Clooney understands how politics works…
"I didn't live my life in the right way for politics," Clooney, who has been approached by the California Democratic Party, tells Newsweek. "I f—ed too many chicks and did too many drugs, and that’s the truth."
First of all, what? Clooney was "approached by the California Democratic Party"? Um, why? Is the state's political roster so empty that the parties have to start going through the IMDB page for Batman & Robin? Any word yet on when Alicia Silverstone will be campaigning for state senate?
Second, of all…
And telling the truth, he says, is key for any campaigner. A savvy politician "would start from the beginning by saying, 'I did it all. I drank the bong water. Now let's talk about issues,'" says Clooney. "That’s gonna be my campaign slogan: 'I drank the bong water'?"
He certainly has the class to for a life in politics.

The beauty/curse of the American Democratic system is that any can throw forth their hat/rhinestone-studded diaper into the political ring and announce their sincere and inspiring/hilarious intentions to achieve elected office. What a great/ridiculous country this truly is…

Seriously, it's like she's not even trying…
"Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." "I don't owe anyone anything." "Jobs, jobs and jobs." Really? Those are the quotes she's gonna go with? I never even heard of those? No "I'll be back," or "Hasta la vista, baby"? Not even an "I'll kill you last"? Ugh!
I'll tell you, I have no idea what kind of governor she'd be, but she is never gonna make it as a guest on Leno.
