L.A. Times entertainment reporter Patrick Goldstein looks at the California recall nuttiness in his column, The Big Picture. After analyzing Arnold's win ("once hard-nosed political reporters got their mitts on Arnold, he would crumble like a bad Schatzi strudel. Well, they proved to be about as scary as Don Zimmer throwing a punch at Pedro Martinez."), Goldstein goes through a few candidates he thinks might have the stuff to run against Arnold. Here are a few and they are hilarious:
Upside: Many people think he already is the president.
Downside: Two words: Charlie Sheen.
Upside: Might lure Arnold into a groping relapse.
Downside: Her tattoo of California state flag is in a place where the sun doesn't shine.
Upside: New Yorkers will pay millions for him to move to California.
Downside: Oscar voters might boycott the election entirely.
Upside: Might be the guy to finally get medical marijuana bill passed.
Downside: Might forget to show up for his inauguration.
Upside: Sure, he fondled women, but at least he paid for them.
Downside: Dad is definitely more presidential.
