Conan the Sexist Prick

Apparently Arnold Schwarzenegger is a womanizing bastard, at least according to this article in Salon.

But then came John Connolly's Arnold exposé in Premiere. The article catalogued allegations of all sorts of boorish behavior, almost all of it directed at women, beginning in the early 1990s and continuing into the new century. During the filming of 1991's "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," Connolly alleged, Schwarzenegger fondled costar Linda Hamilton in a limousine and stuck his hands into the blouse of a female crew member, pulling out her breasts for the amusement of himself and a few of his friends. During the filming of 1996's "Eraser," Connolly alleged, a guest on the set happened upon Schwarzenegger performing oral sex on a woman in his trailer. As Salon reported last month, Schwarzenegger allegedly looked up from his work and uttered a line that has now become an inadvertent trademark of the Schwarzenegger campaign. "Eating," he reportedly said, "is not cheating."

Class-sy, let me tell you.

But I really don't care if Schwarzenegger is a complete boor or not (just like I didn't really care about Bill Clinton's antics). I do think that Grey Davis, a nortorious dirty fighter, will immediately pounce on this issue and use it to his advantage. Davis has more than enough ammo to come away with this dubious election in the end.
