Go Go Govenator!

I am by no means happy with everything the Govenator has done since voting for him in the special election (the first time I ever voted Republican for Govenor) but on the whole this guy has been a breath of fresh air. Cutting the defict, blocking one bill Gill Sedillos repeated attempts to give drivers licencses to Illegal Aliens, campaigning for desperately needed yet unpopular reforms, repealing the car tax, and recently denying clemency to the multiple murderer Monster Williams.

Stories like this one remind me why I voted for him and why I most likely will again.

Here is an excerpt:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Monday told officials in his hometown in Austria to remove his name from a sports stadium and stop using his identity to promote the city. The governor's request came after politicians in Graz began a petition drive to rename the stadium, reacting to Schwarzenegger's decision last week to deny clemency to condemned inmate Stanley Tookie Williams. Opposition to the death penalty is strong in Austria.

In a letter that began "Dear Mister Mayor," Schwarzenegger said he decided to spare the Graz city council "further concern" should he be forced to make other clemency decisions while he's governor. Another inmate is scheduled to be executed in California Jan. 17.

"In all likelihood, during my term as governor, I will have to make similar and equally difficult decisions," Schwarzenegger said in the letter. "To spare the responsible politicians of the city of Graz further concern, I withdraw from them as of this day the right to use my name in association with the Liebenauer Stadium."

Keep it up Govenator.

The Daily Pundit has an update on one of the Govenator's bad decisions.
