GET OUT, NOW….Body and Soul points me to something I missed a couple of days ago: on his first day in office Arnold Schwarzenegger fired the director of the Department of Motor Vehicles. The LA Times quoted a consumer activist as suggesting that this was payback from the car dealers lobby, which doesn’t like the guy and contributed nearly a million dollars to Arnold’s campaign. Their spokesman denied it:

“It’s ludicrous,” he said of the charge. “We didn’t ask that the DMV director be relieved of his duties on [Schwarzenegger’s] first day in office.”

Ludicrous indeed. But what about Arnold’s first week in office?
