The Jury Talks Back


Profanity hidden in governor’s veto letter

Filed under: Uncategorized — aunursa @ 4:36 am

The San Francisco Chronicle reports on a letter apparently sent by California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to the legislature announcing his veto of Assembly bill 1176.  In the letter, taking the first letter of several lines spells out the profanity F— Y–.  You can see the letter here.  It appears to be a valid letter, as it’s linked near the bottom of the governor’s press release page.

Ace of Spades points out that Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, the bill’s author, recently heckled Schwarzenegger at a speech in San Francisco, telling the Governor to “Kiss my gay ass!”


  1. I am ashamed of my reaction to this letter. My extremely low opinion of the Governator went up a bit. Well done, sir.

    My love affair with the Commando has now been rekindled. 😉

  6. I’ll give Conan a couple of props for the letter. It is funny.

    He’s probably not laughing about the state’s workforce fleeing excessive taxation and regulation, though.

  7. Hmmm. Maybe the cajones are finally growing back. This exchange actually made me think a rare good thought about Arnold.

  8. Why’d he wait so long?

  9. #8: Choose your battles carefully. He was taunted by a gay legislator, and he gave back better than he got, in precisely the same level of discourse.
