Schwarzenegger Update: Sucking Up to Rush

We spoke too soon.

We posted a blog entry yesterday on California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's smack down of radio bigshot Rush Limbaugh. Speaking to NBC, the governor had called Rush "irrelevant," which strikes us as exactly the right description of Rush and his political views.

Alas, the governor's "diss" was too good to last. Today we learn that Arnold was smoozing Rush in a friendly telephone conversation on Limbaugh's show, apparently to keep El Rushbo (and his listeners) happy. Arnold groveling—what a concept.

We know that politics creates strange bedfellows. Still, we think Schwarzenegger was right the first time.
