Stop the presses! Just saw this on the LA Times' home page:

Governor Backs Off Controversial Pet Plan

The hectoring barks of thousands of animal lovers convinced Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger today to reverse himself and keep California's law protecting stray dogs and cats at shelters.

Schwarzenegger's about-face came after opponents flooded the governor's office with faxes and phone calls and staged a small afternoon protest with about a dozen dogs at the state Capitol.

The governor said that the plan to repeal the law prohibiting the destruction of animals for at least six days was a "mistake'' made when he hastily put together his budget after taking office last year.


Schwarzeneggar, you pussy. If all the steroids didn't shrivel up your balls, it's apparent that the pressures of ruling amid the whims and caprices of powerful fringe interests has. If Mel Gibson was governor, he wouldn't have taken this shit. He would have marched right out to the capitol steps, closed his eyes and made that little Catholic cross thingy across his chest, then bit the head off an animal shelter iguana and spit it in the face of some PETA picketer. Mad Mel in 2008!

What this all means, of course, is that we're just one step closer to another regressive fee hike or cut in social services to the poor.
