Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

The Californian Melting Pot Governor's Race:

Well, it looks like the pundits were wrong. Last night, the Terminator decided he would like to join the fray, and run for the Governorship of California, assuming the recall initiative gets 50.00001% of the vote, of course. Most "in the know" had predicted a Schwarzenegger abstention, but instead got a surprise declaration on Leno last night:

  • “I decided that California is in a disastrous situation right now... The politicians are fiddling, fumbling and failing. And the man failing more than anyone is Gray Davis... He is failing them terribly, and this is why he needs to be recalled, and this is why I am going to run for governor.”

  • Andrew Sullivan quickly threw in his endorsement, despite being on a self-imposed sabbatical from the Blogosphere.

    Then, we find out that a more diminutive "Arnold", that would be Gary Coleman, of Diff'rent Strokes fame, is going to run (Not that the Strokes' kids had set a high bar for themselves). Of course, opportunist conservative-turned-liberal SUV hater Arianna Huffington decided she, too, had gubernatorial aspirations. Ironically, Huffington's former husband, millionaire MIchael Huffington, endorsed Schwarzenegger. Earlier this week, smut king Larry Flynt (who then proceeded to pray for the death of Bill O'Reilly), comedians Gallagher, and D.L. Hughley, and model Angelyne tossed their names in as well. This is the joke that has become California; an interesting joke, but nonetheless, a joke.
