Schwarzenegger is in

It's quite the surprise. On the very day Jerry Springer bowed out of a political race, the Terminator announced he is running for governor.

In Arnold, the California GOP has quite the classy guy:

Arnold Schwarzenegger has some big ideas when it comes to running for governor -- but he was definitely thinking small when it came to shooting that bathroom dunking scene for his new action flick, "Terminator 3."

"I saw this toilet bowl," Schwarzenegger told Entertainment Weekly in its July 11 edition. "How many times do you get away with this -- to take a woman, grab her upside down, and bury her face in a toilet bowl?"

But, the Mighty Terminator adds: "I wanted to have something floating there. "


"The thing is, you can do it," Arnold argued, "because in the end, I didn't do it to a woman -- she's a machine! We could get away with it without being crucified by who-knows-what group."

Maybe -- but in the end, the "floating" idea was itself terminated.

"They thought it was my typical Schwarzenegger overboard."

The same people who crucified Springer's aborted Senate race will be tripping over themselves praising Ahnold.

Well, whatever "floats" their boat.

Incidentally, California Dems claim they have done no oppo on Arnold. You see, the tabloids have tons of material they've been dying to run with. Problem is, Schwarzenegger is famously litigous, and the tabloids have had to sit on the info lest they face the wrong end of a subpoena.

However, now that he is a public figure, all bets are off.

Me, I'll Schwarzenegger over Riordan any day of the week.
