This is a match made in reality show heaven.
In one corner you have the Terminator, also known as California Governor Schwarzenegger. In the other corner you have Sarah Palin, former Governor of Alaska, also know as the pitbull in lipstick, caribou barbie or brainless twit.
This encounter started with Palin’s asinine comments on climate change and her attempt to instruct President Obama to boycott the Copenhagen climate change conference.
The Terminator has long been a proponent of controlling emissions and like most intelligent human beings is a believer that climate change is a real and eminent problem.
The Pitbull with Lipstick is shooting from the hip and spouting the talking points of the major polluting corporations in the US.
While in Copenhagen Schwarzenegger told the Financial Times that ”You have to ask: what was she trying to accomplish? Is she really interested in this subject or is she interested in her career and in winning the [Republican] nomination [for president]? You have to take all these things with a grain of salt.”
Basically the Terminator exposed Palin for what she is. A media whore.
Palin shot back on her Facebook page
“Why is Governor Schwarzenegger pushing for the same sorts of policies in Copenhagen that have helped drive his state into record deficits and unemployment? Perhaps he will recall that I live in our nation’s only Arctic state and that I was among the first governors to create a sub-cabinet to deal specifically with climate change. While I and all Alaskans witness the impacts of changes in weather patterns firsthand, I have repeatedly said that we can’t primarily blame man’s activities for those changes. And while I did look for practical responses to those changes, what I didn’t do was hamstring Alaska’s job creators with burdensome regulations so that I could act “greener than thou” when talking to reporters.”
I can’t wait for the next round. I can see it now. The California Tea Baggers and Palin supports will now protest in front of the Governor’s mansion because the Terminator pulled the curtain back and confirmed what everyone already knew about Palin.
