Arnold is Running

ARNOLD IS RUNNING….This is ridiculous. Arnold announces he’s going to run for governor. It’s front page news on the LA Times. No problem.

But it’s also front page news on CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and USA Today.

It’s also the lead story on the BBC. The BB-friggin-C.

Come on, folks. This is a guy running for governor of California, not a candidate for pope. Is August really such a slow news month that out of all the things happening in the world the BBC has nothing better to lead with than this?
