Arnold Addled by Gov Race

California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, currently in Britain meeting with Prime Minister David Cameron, took to Twitter today to call out state Republican lawmakers who are refusing to back pension reform amid lobbying by the prison guards union.

Schwarzenegger linked to a story in the Riverside Press-Enterprise, noting that it was a great story because it called out Republicans for blocking reform. “That’s right, Republicans,” Schwarzenegger wrote, while also praising state Republican chairman Ron Nehring for calling out Democrats for opposing reform.

That triggered a question from a follower, who asked, “What do you think of eMeg selling her vote to the police union.” Schwarzenegger responded, “It’s apalling when someone sells out.”

Schwarzenegger has been critical of Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown for not providing enough specifics of what they plan to do to balance the state budget, and at an appearance before the Los Angeles Press Club in June he encouraged reporters to hold their feet to the fire.

Not one to pile on, Schwarzenegger soon answered a question about the use of the “whore” comment by one of Brown’s campaign staffers. “That word is unacceptable,” he wrote.

One follower picked up on his exchange, sending the retweet and a comment, “@Cinepub: @Schwarzenegger “It’s appalling when anyone sells out”: Then explain Junior!”

Responded Schwarzenegger: “Now that’s funny.”
