Governator™ Schwarzenegger Sends Gag "Bull Testicle" Gift to the Wrong Democrats

Last week, California Governator™ Ahnold sent California State Senate President Pro-Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) a package containing a miniature sculpture of bull testicles, with the message that the California Senate leader might need them to "make some tough budget choices."

Yeah, it was in over-the-top machismo poor taste. The senator returned them with a mild reproach.

But it wasn't really that big a deal. Apparently, these two send gag gifts back and forth all the time.

When Ahnold referred to the CA Senate's budget proposals as "hallucinatory," Steinberg sent Der Governator™ a basket of mushrooms (just the garden-variety kind, but the joke was made).

Schwarzenegger and the California Legislature have a helluva big problem facing them, and I don't envy them a bit.

My complaint isn't the fact that Schwarzenegger sent the bull balls. Arnold decided a bit of levity was in order, and he's never been known for displaying much reserve.

My complaint is he sent them to the wrong lawmakers.

Every United States Senate Democrat who's waffling on Obama's health care plan should receive a silver-plated set as a reminder that they need to grow a pair.

Except for Harry Reid.

Since he hasn't any testicles of his own, he should receive two sets.

Gold plated.

Excellent idea. Maybe there should be a teabag-like movement to send lawmakers pouches w/ 2 marbles in each.
