The Washington Post should hire better headline writers. On an article detailing a visit by California's governator to a conference on women and families, which he sponsored, the Post titled the article thusly:
Schwarzenegger Lends Women His Muscle
I'm sorry, but given the treatment Schwarzenegger got from the press during the last weekend of his recall election, that headline conjured up something completely different than what the article delivered. Instead, William Booth writes dishy, somewhat gossipy coverage of a routine political event, one in which Arnold's friend and co-star enthusiastically supported his outlook on women's issues:
All those accusations of unwelcome gropes in hostile work environments? A distant memory of a recent unpleasantness, it seems. Because when the actress Jamie Lee Curtis introduced California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger at his Conference on Women and Families here on Tuesday, the audience of 10,000 -- about 9,995 of them female -- gave the Republican action hero a standing ovation.
"Welcome to the estrogen festival!" announced Curtis, who described her co-star in 1994's "True Lies" as a caring, compassionate gal pal who gets it. "He is," Curtis sighed, "the ultimate girlie man."
When a top button on Curtis's silk blouse came undone onstage, the governor looked down and said, "I didn't see anything."
