Reason Contributing Editor and confirmed Californicator Tim Cavanaugh has a long declamation of Arnold Schwarzenegger's "lost year" in the latest LA Weekly. I'll spoil the ending:
[M]arveling at Arnold Schwarzenegger's career isn't as fun as it used to be. Most Californians are too preoccupied with rising taxes and "fees," uncontrolled spending, lousy services, and broken state politics to care about a superman who turned out to be a flash in the pan.
Reason on Schwarzenegger here, including a post-recall piece by Cavanaugh asking, "Is Arnold good for the libertarians?"
