Arnold hired a new press secretary, a woman named Thompson. Apparently she worked on Gee-Dub Bush’s campaign as well. Strange hiring, I thought. Arnold seemed to have the avoiding questions routine mastered.

But maybe Arnold just liked that Thompson has worked with aliens before. He is after all, originally from Austria, and Thompson won’t have any more trouble working with him than Bush, who’s from…uh, well, wherever Satan goes to give birth. Oh yeah, Texas.

But I have to give Arnold credit. Learning a second language is not easy. Look how much trouble Bush is having with his first.

Wednesday’s forecast: In other news, Al Gore has hired PimpBot 5000 as a “charisma counselor.”
