Take action now:

The brainspawn of Arianna Huffington

Arianna is producing TV commercials that try to link SUV buying with terrorism. Norman Lear and a couple other Hollywoodians put up some money for them.

While I haven't seen them, their scripts appear to have been lifted straight from the recent anti-drug commercials. Perhaps the same agency did the spots. And, they have the same failings. While buying an SUV does increase gasoline usage, so do most other forms of commerce. When Arianna buys her, let's say, Jose Eber Hair Conditioner, she's helping finance the delivery of it to her local store. Which was done by gasoline trucks. The more she buys, the more she ends up supporting terrorism.

Likewise with Amazon, whose books are shipped by UPS's gasoline-powered trucks. The more books you buy from Amazon, the more you support Osama. You monster.

Arianna's website seems to be getting slashdotted. Just remember, the more you visit her site, the more power you consume and the more power you require her servers to consume. Sure, that might come from fairly clean hydroelectic power. But, it might come from burning dirty coal. And, those dams that will have to be built because you're an energy hog will damage ecosystems, and gasoline-powered dumptrucks will be used to build them. Think about that the next time you surf the web, Chester!

Perhaps Arianna should move to a shack in Montana to avoid increasing the nation's gasoline consumption.

Perhaps a better use for Arianna's time would be attempting to encourage cutting off terrorism funding closer to the source.

On another note, this is not really racism. It's just a very blunt and crass assessment of whether the studio thinks they're going to make money on something.

In the original version of this post, I referred to Jose Bove Hair Conditioner. Just to set the record straight, Jose Eber is the poofy Beverly Hills hair stylist who wears a cowboy hat. Jose Bove is the guy in France who drives tractors into McDonalds. I sincerely apologize to both celebrities and to Arianna for any confusion.

Arianna Huffington is a completely useless human being. Credibility being the largest factor of any candidate for governor, she has absolutely none. Also, why does she spend so much time focusing on Arnold? I believe it is because she has nothing to say. Throughout the debate of the four top candidates, she stumbled and acted like a complete fool. When she was called on her (many) flaws, she just smiled because she had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to back her up.
I am not biased against woman in politics, but this is one extreme exception...she makes a major disgrace of both men and women alike. I would trust a mentally retarded dog more than I would trust Huffington because at least the dog is going with honest instinct. Huffington can't even trust herself.
This complete imbecile goes from one topic to the next trying to gain fame. Why would one think this? She gains one side, and then changes. Not once, not a couple of times, but over and over and over...you think someone trying to gain political experience would have their mind made up. She doesn't. She's not political material or anything close to it, and she knows it.
For the whole gasoline thing, she is a fool to try and do anything about it. Gasoline will be used up someday, and there truly is nothing anyone can do about it. Yes, large SUV's burn much more fuel than necessary, but what are you going to do jesse? Reinstall an engine in every single SUV? You can put electric engines in every single vehicle that comes out, do you think the import car/motorcycle racers, muscle car buffs, etc are going to switch to hybrid engines as well? You think that they are going to try and conserve gas? Gas is a finite source, and when it runs out, we have electricity to back it up.
Someone said that Arianna is famous because she's famous. She has absolutely no significance of any kind, and never will. I entered all four top candidates as neutral, and now despise Arianna more at an extreme level...almost even to the level of backwards racist candidates from back in history!
Anyone that likes or supports Huffington in any way, please WAKE UP and research her before you put any effort whatsoever into her campaign or anything else that has to do with her in a positive fashion.

This is one EXTREME ANTI-HUFFINGTON PERSON signing off...VOTE ARNOLD! HE'S THE ONLY CANDIDATE WITH THE MAJORITY OF THE VOTE THAT HAS A BRAIN IN HIS HEAD. SURE MCLINTOCK IS SMARTER AND BETTER SUITED, BUT VOTE FOR HIM, AND REPUBLICANS LOSE THE RACE. MCLINTOCK CAN'T WIN, SO DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.

God, you people are dumb.

The entire point of the campaign is to push for MORE FUEL EFFICIENT SUVs. See, SUVs MASSIVELY OVERUSE fuel, unlike most other vehicles.

I'm glad to see that you're firing up the brain cell, though.

This is the smartest thing i've heard said about this whole stupid anti-SUV conspiracy. Arianna is just a business woman trying to make a buck and promote her writing career. And Lincoln, are you just plain stupid. it's not about the anti-drug campaign. It's about SUV's and stupid people with stupid ideas that WILL NOT WORK.

The whole point is to ridicule the anti-drug campaign. You guys don't get it.

Good for you! Too many people buy her "crap" and I'm so happy to see so many people out there speaking up against Arianna Huffington and her cohorts.
