More on Schwarzenegger and Women

LAT takes a close look at Arnold's 30-year public history of talking about women. They document some of his more misogynistic statements along with some pro-equality thoughts that he has voiced over the years.

What kills me is the hypocrite Republicans -- inlcluding many Republican women -- saying everything is just fine with Arnold's comments and sordid past. In an article we linked to the other day, some big-wig Republican woman said, "As far as I know, Arnold upholds family values." This about a man who a week earlier had been all over the news for the orgies, groping numerous reporters and co-stars, and making a series of generally unkind or backwards statements about women. ("I saw this toilet bowl. 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?" and "Neither my mother nor Maria is allowed to go out with me in pants." How's that for family values?) I haven't seen the tape, but I heard Pat Robertson has literally laughed off Arnold's sexual escapades, with a cheap one liner about "well, back in my bodybuilding days...". Puke.
