Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)

Although I am weeping for a society such that allows these two events to happen simultaneously, my tears are nothing that Warren Beatty running to be the next governor or California couldn't stop. Beatty has an interest in politics and played some football, but most importantly he has been involved in great movies like Bonnie and Clyde (Arthur Penn, 1967), McCabe & Mrs. Miller (Robert Altman, 1971) and Bulworth (Beatty, 1998). The very best of Beatty's films were important works, while Schwarzenegger's presence in a feature is a pretty sure guarantee that it won't be good.
Now I know what you are saying. Beatty did give money to Al Gore's campaign three years ago in addition to donating to Ralph Nader's run, but celeb candidates are unlikely to be perfect. Yes President Beatty sounds better than Governor Beatty but John Cusack has the prez racket next year. Finally, while it would be fun to see Tim Robbins and/or Susan Sarandon campaign, those two really should focus on making positive films now that Robbins' 1992 masterpiece Bob Roberts appears to have become a reality.
Wait a second... maybe Robbins should get out of the movie business.
