Echoes from California

Corzine & Schwarzenegger both slashing parks and blowing hot air on global warming – California does it bigger
Are the two “Governators” reading from the same playbook“Politics for idiots” ?

Corzine & Schwarzenegger face off at Yale to sign “Governors Declaration on Climate Change”.

Headlines in California eerily echo NJ’s. Here’s news from California:
Governor Schwarzenegger Has Really Rattled the Cages with Proposed Cuts to California’s State Parks
The Save Our State Parks (SOS) Campaign held a rally on the West Steps of the Capitol yesterday in protest of the proposed cuts to state parks. More than 300 park advocates including legislators, mayors, surfers, hikers, campers, RV enthusiasts, and other parks users chanted slogans and held signs decrying the proposed closure of 48 state parks and the reduction of life guard staffing at 16 state beaches. http://www.californiaprogressreport.com/2008/04/governor_schwar_20.html
Same story in New Jersey:
Statehouse rally protests park closings
By Tom Baldwin • GANNETT STATE BUREAU • April 24, 2008
TRENTON — A rollicking array of hikers, horse people, historical re-enactors, Boy Scouts, birders, unionists — just about anyone who enjoys state parks and historic sites– rallied on the sun-splashed steps of the Statehouse Wednesday to urge Gov. Jon S. Corzine not to shut those venues as a way to economize in the budget crunch.

Corzine drew hisses from the Yale partisans when he brought greetings from the Princeton Tigers
Schwarzenegger was well received and got laughs for remarks that ridiculed environmentalists

    I have to ask…just what are they “preparing to compare” in the first photo, Wolfe?
    My caption? “OK guys, apparently you misunderstood me. I said ‘When it comes to screwing environmentalists, who *IS* the biggest dick.'”

    byramaniac – lets keep it clean now, lest some folks get the wrong idea about the “Hummer” the Good Governor drives
    Especially in light of the title of my last post “Yale Does Schwarzenegger” (which of course was not an allusion to “Debbie Does Dallas”!).
