Arnold Acts Like Governor
Boing Boing alerts us to the Governator's dramatic re-enactment of filling a Potemkin pothole:
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger traveled to a quiet San Jose neighborhood Thursday, and -- dogged by protesters -- filled a pothole dug by city crews just a few hours before, as part of an attempt to dramatize his efforts to increase money for transportation projects.
You could say it's the Method approach to governance, but creating a fake problem for the specific purpose of getting credit for fixing it is a classic political maneuver, and, hey, it's working for Bush and Iraq.
