Classic Rant #506 (May 17, 2011): Ah-Nold the Sperminator
I am pretty sure that the last word in my title here has probably been used in a porno film before I used it--and if it hasn't, well, I guess I've coined a term--but let's face it, Arnold Schwarzenegger has proven that he is a bit of a pig.
The former California governor--and star of "The Terminator" and countless other flicks--has acknowledged that he fathered a child with a member of his household staff. When this news was presented to his wife, Maria Shriver, she left the couple's home before they announced their separation last week.
The child actually preceded Ah-nold's ascendency to the governorship, and is probably about 10 years old now. The reports I have read have not revealed the child's sex or how Schwarzenegger is taking care of him/her (and obviously, has taken care of the staffer so she wouldn't blab).
Funny, but Schwarzenegger has been accused of piggish behavior with women before. He has been accused of groping more than one, and he has said things in the past that have shown that he considers women in a lesser light then men.
But who knew he was dropping his pants?
It is truly amazing that this news only leaked out now, when he is not the governor anymore. How has he kept this indiscretion so hush hush for such a long time?
I am sure he has paid the woman handsomely, but how could Maria Shriver not have known about this?
Or did she know about it, but simply figured that she wouldn't complain just yet, not with her husband as governor and she as the state's first lady?
That is assuming a lot, but you never know. Don't tell me Hillary Clinton hasn't know about her husbands indiscretions. She, and perhaps Shriver, figured they could get ahead through their association with their husbands, even thought these men can't keep their pants on.
And, of course, we also have the case of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the head of the International Monetary Fund, who tried to skip town last week but was nabbed when it came out that he forced sex on a chambermaid at the hotel he was staying at in New York City.
And like Ah-nold, he has been accused many times before of piggish behavior with women.
The difference in this case to that of Schwarzenegger is that the Frenchman is being accused of rape--and his wife is standing by her man, saying it could not have happened.
I don't know what is more reprehensible, the behavior of these powerful men or the behavior of their wives, who take a "see no evil, hear no evil" stance. And that includes Shriver, who is portraying herself as possibly the dumbest woman on the planet.
But these guys are pigs. They really are.
My advice to them is to keep their pants on, because every drop of their pants is going to cost them, and cost them dearly.
Will they ever learn?
