Angelides Sacrifices Female Campaign Worker to Arnold

Arnold "Der Gropenfüher" Schwarzenegger is the Governor of this proud sector of Murrka™ and no tricks Phil Angelides tries will ever change that simple fact.

The campaign of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's Democratic rival acknowledged Tuesday that it downloaded - and leaked to the media - a recording of a private meeting in which the governor described a Hispanic legislator as having a "very hot" personality. Luckily, the Ministry of Homeland Security was able to bring pressure on the Los Angeles Times and force them to remove the audio clip. Sadly, no such luck with youtube.com which continues to host Der Gropenführer's comments (skip forward to 4:30 into the clip fur der juizy beets).

In a six-minute audiotape obtained by the Los Angeles Times, Schwarnegger's staffers tried to guess Latino legislator Bonnie Garcia's country of origin. Schwarzenegger said her origin didn't matter.

"I mean, they are all very hot. ... They have the, you know, part of the black blood in them and part of the Latino blood in them that together makes it," he says..

Schwarzenegger went on to say his friend, Cuban-born former weightlifter Sergio Oliva, is the same way.

The governor knew a tape recorder was rolling during the meeting.

A spokeswoman for Schwarzenegger said the conversation was in good fun. The remarks, she said, were taken out of context.

Garcia herself said that she is not bothered at all by Schwarzenegger's comments. She said she has an inside joke with the governor in which she calls herself a "hot-blooded Latina" who is passionate about issues.

Garcia also said that she likes Schwarzenegger because he's a straight talker.
What's the big deal? I talk like that at work all the time.
