California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said on Monday that his speech backing President Bush at the Republican Convention in August resulted in a dramatic cold shoulder from his wife Maria Shriver, a member of the very Democratic Kennedy family.
"Well, there was no sex for 14 days," Schwarzenegger told former White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta in an on-stage conversation in front of 1,000 people. "Everything comes with side effects."
The crowd roared with laughter, but the governor may have been serious: he has said little in public to back fellow Republican Bush since then. Panetta, a Democrat, had asked him how Shriver, whose uncle was U.S. President John F. Kennedy, had reacted to his praised but partisan prime-time convention speech.
At least this isn't as bad as the withholding that is being advised by the folks over at Votergasm. However, it is troubling to see that the king of macho men could be humbled by his little wifey (that is sarcasm folks....say it with me....SARCASM). I guess we know who wears the pants in that family. Still, I don't blame him. I bet 14 days gives him adequate time to heal up the bone bruises he gets from humping Skeletor.
