earlier today we learned that the singer from TSOL has filed to run for governor. Now, an astute reader alerts us, 99-year-olds are in demand: "The 99 Cent Only stores is offering to pay $3,499 of the $3,500 filing fee for anyone 99 years old who wants to be governor."

Hello to satorg from leftcoast. Here's what I saw just now at LAX:

A human steroid, sitting there glum, waiting for someone to pick him up. He was sitting with his trophy, and I had to look at what it was for. Four feet tall blue and gold, it had a little gold weightlifter on the top.

I thought, man, what do you have to lift to get a four foot high trophy, and then I looked closely at the little gold trophy weightlifting figure and noticed that -- in transit, presumably -- the right half of the little trophy barbell had broken off.

I thought of that guy putting this trophy in his room next to all the other ones kinda like it, but this one's maybe the tallest, and I thought of him staring at it for the next forty, I don't know, maybe fifty, years, and thinking, "fucking half a barbell."

Those are my main sense impressions thus far. The rest have to do with room service.

well, the broken barbell sucks, but if he plays his cards right, uses his muscles to make money, marries a kennedy, and speaks with a thick austrian accent, that human steroid can run for governor of california one day.

speaking of arnold, if he's smart he reprises his role as the "term"inator in campaign commercials and spins it that he's come back from the dismal cali-future to prevent davis from ruining the state.

Yes but thank god: he's not smart.

But in any case, I think it's only fair that since Hollywood is already hand-in-hand with the Department of Defense, that it can also get into at least two out of the three branches of gov'ment.

What about Rob Reiner as the Democratic candidate? As he himself put it: "What, Meathead versus the Terminator?"

Today's Daily News cover headline with pic of Ahh-nold: TOTAL RECALL. Subhead: The Running Man.

Makes you wonder what the Post was thinking with: GOVERNATOR .

Mongol Leader: "Conan! What is best in life?!"
Conan: "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women!"
Mongol Leader: "That is good."
