U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton referred to California Gov.-elect Arnold Schwarzenegger as “the predator” Wednesday night – in what sounded like a double entendre reference to the myriad of groping allegations leveled against the former Hollywood action star as well as his 1986 movie by the same name.
Now I had been wondering previously about what really happened on the set of the Predator movie. Out of a nine person cast, Jessie Ventura and now Arnold Arnold Schwarzenegger have gone on to become governors. Was there some strange virus in the water that caused these men to seek political power? Some secret CIA test used on unlikely candidates to prove the governor-virus effectiveness. If so then we should look at the cast to determine who else might become governors.
The actor who played the alien predator in both movies is Kevin Peter Hall. In three of his four SF movies he has played aliens, so maybe he won’t become governor of California; but at least he can get a drivers license there and a reduced college education.
Out of the rest of the cast I would think that Carl Weathers would be the most likely unlikely person to become governor next. If there is a governor-aspiration-virus we must hope and pray that it is not communicable, especially since Carl Weather was in a movie with Adam Sandler.
There is also Bill Duke who might be possibility. If Arnold with all of the problems of his actions in the past can get elected, then it is theoretically possible that people would forgive Bill Duke for directing Whoopee Goldberg in Sister Act II: Back n the Habit.
