Schwartzenegger on Guns, Gays and the Presidency 

As reported in an AP News article via Yahoo! News, California Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger pressed for Utah Republican Senator Orrin Hatch's proposed constitutional amendment allowing individuals who have been naturalized U.S. citizens for at least 20 years to run for president. He also claims never to have considered running for president himself. Not having done a lot of research, I'm in favor of such an amendment, but his aspirational denial seems a bit disingenuous.

But it seems that Demolition Man continues its prescience.

Further in the article, Schwarzenegger continued to voice his opposition to the gay marriages in San Francisco, making this rather giant leap:

"In San Francisco it is license for marriage of same sex. Maybe the next thing is another city that hands out licenses for assault weapons and someone else hands out licenses for selling drugs, I mean you can't do that," Schwarzenegger said on NBC.

Yes, because these are such parallel concepts...
