  1. I can see the post election mess a la Florida now…

    “I didn’t mean to vote for that Arnold!”

  2. I’ll vote for him just to see him kick some asses! Can he do it without falling backwards?

  3. Whatchutalkin’ bout, Willis?

  4. It looks like the Punk Rock Party has tossed in a candidate as well, and it’s not Jello Biafra.

  5. Also, he can speak for the little guy.

  6. twistedmerkin:

    Damn, you beat me to it!

  7. Davis should look out. Coleman could come in under the radar.

  8. Why would anyone be for someone who is anti-Union? Does anti-Union mean criminalizing Unions?

  9. ^Yes as a rule. Of course there are always exceptions to prove the rule.

  10. Coleman is good on opposing taxes, favoring legal pot, and a “hands off” attitude toward gays.
    But unions are a matter of free association, as Nathanial Branden pointed out, and anyone who talks about using eminent domain is dangerous.
    But it does show a growing trend – anti-tax, pro-pot – that does lay the groundwork for a new political coalition that is socially liberal and fiscally conservative.
    Hopefully, Arrianna is paying attention.

  11. Great, so once again goodideas will be laughed off the platform b/c of the candidate.

  12. lemme guess, he is running on the LP ticket, right?

    what is the blueskinned druid on summer vacation!

  13. I agree with the anon poster. I’m onboard with all of the ideas, but really, who’s going to take them seriously coming from Gary Coleman???

  14. You’ll have to take his ideas seriously when he’s governor.

  15. Is he available for president?

  16. Did you actually read all ten points in that article?! I wouldn’t vote for the little twerp even if he had won I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

    I’m not voting for anyone whose prime political tactics include threatening to “find them and put my size four-and-a-halfs so deep into their colon!” – that include Arnie.

  17. He’s sorta all over the place…hates taxes (who doesn’t?), but wants to hike up the so called “sin” taxes. Wants to eliminate taxes on businesses (also good), but then wants to give them free stuff, like water? I might be willing to forvige those stances, but the way he talks about using emmnent domain power is kinda scary. But I don’t live in california, so seeing him as governor would be freakin’ hilarious.

  18. I can see him running as a libertarian candidate, and still trying to ride his former tv fame:
    His speech:
    “Now the world don’t move to the beat of just one drum
    What might be right for you, may not be right for some …
    Everybody’s got a special kinda story
    Everybody finds a way to shine
    It don’t matter that you got not a lot- so what?
    They’ll have theirs, you’ll have yours and I’ll have mine..”

    (lyrics to the Diffrent Strokes theme song, dontcha know….)

  19. He’s just stumping for votes.

  20. I dont belive any of it.

    And pot should never be legal.

    It’s safer to play with a man’s wife than with his cliches.
