There's Precedent

Via Mr. Atrios, Governor Schwarzenegger is booed at some sorta horse-racing event. In the same article:
Zenyatta, who's 14 for 14 in her career, was paraded on the track after the seventh race and brought into the winner's circle.

"She made impossible possible," Ann Moss said of Zenyatta, who's headed for Kentucky and broodmare duties.
Hmm...a solution to California's governance problems presents itself.

Executing wealthy senators and seizing their estates for the State is certainly one approach to closing the budget deficit.

Furthermore, if the US were to switch to Caligula's foreign policy of "Invading beaches and bringing back shells as booty from Neptune", then the rest of the world would feel substantially more secure.

Going to battle with the ocean would keep military spending at home where it belongs.

Incredibly witty observation from Smut Clyde deleted to allow a later-arriving comment from SM to appear to have precedence

Wait until her foalhood indiscretions come out in the open, and someone uploads the self-made films to Youtube, and the pageant organisers strip her of her title.

WV is a nonce-word. Honestly; it's "nonce".

Another equine option the Governor may wish to consider: President Mariano Melgarejo of Bolivia supposedly traded a big chunk of Bolivian territory to Brazil for a horse. Perhaps Schwarzenegger can find a chief executive in a neighboring state or nation willing to swap.

The only Neptune these United Snakes are getting booty from is the one between Uranus & Pluto.

I remember that Angry Samoans singer being really short. Looked like his guitar was enormous.

Randy looks weirder doing that kind of thing now than when he was young.

I don't think I've had a record of his since Born Again, which made me worried because of all the LA session guys.

Well, at least our dancing is safe in California. We haven't yet had an initiative to ban minuets. Why do the Swiss hate Mozart?

What?

Never mind.
