I fear dear Saundra has jumped off the deep end, and hasn't yet hit bottom.

Officially, Reiss will focus on retaining California’s entertainment industry and on children’s issues.

Seems to me that's a place she can do little or no harm.

But she will also be a sounding board for Schwarzenegger, an anchor from his former life as he enters a world filled with advisers and associates with whom he has little history and about whom he knows little.

That part is pure hyperbole. Had he appointed her to something substantial, I'd be concerned. But he didn't.

Arnold won and he won big time. He's going to make a success of his governship, just as he has in all his endeavors. CA is now in play for POTUS and all other Republicans who will challenge democrats in 2004, in state races and in races for the US House and Senate.

Our GOP glass is more than half full. Thanks to Arnold winning the election, Latinos are no longer property of democrats. Independents overwhelmingly voted for Arnold too. What percentage of the black vote did he get? Thirteen percent or more if memory serves. This is not just GOOD, it's great.

Your so-called "fear for whatever Arnold's victory means for the future of the RNC" is hilarious.

Politics is about WINNING, and *gasp* compromise.

I only have two questions for Bonnie Reiss. Are you from Massachusetts, and can you swim?

One thing you used to be able to count on was that we ALL - to the one - were united against Ted Kennedy and his ilk.

I guess that argument would have more appeal if I were assured that we ALL on FR -- to the one -- were united in support of George W. Bush.

Much ado about nothing.

Nothing? We'll see . . . but you know it doesn't feel too good getting screwed by the likes of Teddy Kennedy.

One good thing - Arnold announced he's not going to have one of those fancy parties after he's sworn in. Thank goodness we won't have to stomach a ballroom full of RINOs and democrats (with a few "token" conservative Republicans) dancing around, clapping and making fools of themselves. Thank goodness for small blessings.

This democrat operative gets to team up with the likes of Willie Brown.

Willie is on the "transition team". Heard much from any of them since they were announced?

I didn't think so.

His article was bait for people of your generally anti-Arnold position, and you fell for it.

Yep and I fell for the appointment of Willie Brown, too.

If Teddy Kennedy gets a foothold here, we're doomed. You must not live in CA or you'd be pitchin' a hissy fit, too.

Well, if you're worried about that, Maria Shriver's relationship to the governor-elect must have you breaking out in hives. My advice: Don't play this six-degrees of separation game, and don't panic. His appointments have been a mix, haven't they?

No drunken dancing with lampshades on their heads? No coke snorting? No boy toys in the back room? Whatever is the Sodom and Gomorrah "wing" of the California GOP coming to? Won't Pete Wilson be conducting the human sacrifice of anyone to the right of Margaret Sanger? Some suggest that I am becoming cynical in my old age. I can't see it.

God bless you and yours, my lady!

"Long time pal of Teddy Kennedy."

Apparently for some on this board, Kennedy DNA slathered upon signed liberal California legislation won't be proof that Arnold isn't actually a (hack, cough, gag) a real Republican.

Boy now they are complimenting you!! I love when I get called narrow minded!! I want to get a shirt that says Narrow Minded!!

It just shows what type of immature, childish people they are!

Narrow Minded= Someone who has an idea, belief and /or conviction regarding a matter and is not willing to change that because someone else says they should even if that other person insults, bullies and attempts to manipulate them into doing so!

So they must revert to calling you a name! Of course the people that call others narrow-minded can not debate they facts honestly nor can they accept that someone will reject their point of view. MCD

I don't want to say "I told you so" but I did state that I was worried this would happen. God help California.

Of course we'd have been much better off with cruz bustamechA...the only other candidate who could have won...right?

The election was over a month ago and you still don't get it.

I guess some never will.
