Schwarzenegger: "Stop Whining or I Will Crush You"

OK...he wasn't quite that blunt about it. But, Tuesday, Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill that would have banned use of the word "Redskin" as a mascot name in all California school districts. His veto message said that it was a local issue and none of the state's business. Proponents of the bill, including a group of professional whiners called the "Alliance Against Racial Mascots (ALARM)", vow to continue trying to win the bill's passage.

And so Mr. Schwarzenegger's transformation of California politics continues.
