What an absolute legend.
Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger has told Democrat San Francisco assembly member Tom Ammiano just what he thinks of him and his "infrastructure financing districts" bill in a letter which explicity slams the latter, while firing a delicious acrostic broadside at its author: Schwarzenegger's letter to Tom Ammiano Arnie's …
What an odd thing to have happened!
Arnie will get into hot water this time, 'for sure.'
Negative publicity isn't always good publicity.
Knowing the American centre to be quite religious, it's not clever.
Even allowing for it being California an' all.
Really, he should check his letters more!
Surely the response should have been along the lines of:
Certainly the wording of Mr Schwartzenegger's veto could be deemed as an
unique and unfortunate coincidence. Strict and thorough proof reading of all
notes passed between politicians should be undertaken in prevention of
this occurring again any time in future.
Are they implying that the Governator would deliberately issue such a foul mouthed
rant? It seems somewhat unlikely to me that anyone would go to all that trouble with
no guarantee that the intended victim would every actually become aware of the
other, hidden, message. Oh well, whether intentional or otherwise, you've got to
love the irony. Of course, if he was going to be truly clever he'd have tried to do a
dry quip from the terminator movies.

Even my the lofty standards of the California legislature's windbaggery, Tom Ammiano stands out as a spectacular waste of oxygen. He was a dismal chariman of the SF board of Supervisors, elected and pandering the the shrillest and least representative special interests around.
"It seems somewhat unlikely to me that anyone would go to all that trouble with no guarantee that the intended victim would every actually become aware of the other, hidden, message."
I have gone to that trouble a number of times when having to respond in a civil manner to a particularly rude or ignorant complaint. True, most people will not see it, but there is always the hope that it will at least affect the target subliminally. The art of it is in making it appear like it was an 'accident'.
I expect the governator's staff spent several days, at taxpayer's expense, to come up with that one. I really wish my fellow residents here in Bankruptistan would develop the intestinal fortitude to send the governator a big "FU" and replace him with somebody a bit less aligned with the rich minority up there in the hills.
"Knowing the American centre to be quite religious, it's not clever."
No, we're not. That would be the right-wing-nuts. The left-wing-nuts are equally religious, but not in the traditional xtian manor. Us here in the middle, not so much.
As a Californian, deep down I hope he did it on purpose. And does similar in the future. Might light a fire under the mindless self-serving mob posing as "the legeslature" in Sacramento.
If you include all lines in the correspondence actually says "I F*** You". You gotta respect the personal touch.
IT relevance? He use to play a humanlike robot with schemes for gobal domination - funny how life imitates art.
I use to work with a collegue who took great efforts to put additional meanings in his emails, by using the first letter of each paragraph. I suppose if you dont use email to send it you can get more into each message by using the first letter in each line as you control where the line breaks will occur regardless of the email system.
What no governator icons anywhere?
The folks around here really enjoyed it.
It made them smile and laugh. I also
thought it was great stuff and I'm one of
several God fearing Christians here.
Really, people need to get a life if they're
offended by something like this. It just
causes themselves to be bound and
keeps them in chains to who offended them.
/mines the one with the little birds and boulders on the back
the governator wins.
actually gained some respect for him for this, i think he's doing the right thing by standing up for himself / his constituents. hes damn right that too much shit gets legislated while important stuff is waffled over for years and committees of people who's primary occupation are justifying their jobs are formed to waffle over it.
go arnie \m/ \m/
I hope the reply is suitably arranged so that vertical reading will spell "get in line", or a better comeback (but is there??)
Instead of signing it with Sincerely...
He "should've"* signed it with Truly...
That would've** ended it with Tom Ammiano's initials...
