Re: Prepared Remarks

Yesterday's Wall Street Journal had this editorial "by" California gubernatorial candidate Arnold Schwarzenegger. I don't know how much of this actually came from the man himself, but I doubt it was much. His resistance to contemporaneous discussion casts suspicion on what are truly his core values. Some have argued in the past that it really shouldn't matter, because the people writing the speeches are the ones getting the administrative posts anyway, but there will be tough decisions that cannot be solved by less-than-witty one liners.

Thanks, Joe, for highlighting this point. The bulk of mainstream media seems to have missed it.
