Arnold Goes Flabby

Say it isn't so. First he backs a liberal Republican in the California gubernatorial primary. Now he wants to increase social spending at a time when the state faces an approximately $20 billion deficit.

The ballot initiative is the first real political campaign of Arnold's own. Although he has flirted with a run for California governor in the past, it remains to be seen whether his promotion of the initiative fits with any latent political ambitions.

The Left Coast Report suspects that a strain of Kennedy-itis may have found its way into Arnold's bloodstream. Apparently, he's forgotten the conservative principle of financial holes – when you're in one, quit digging.

How do aging Hollywood libs entertain? With cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, dinner and some nuclear waste.

The legendary film couple has invited reporters, nuclear power advocates and environmentalists to their home to try and solve the thorny environmental problems that come with nuclear power.

Representatives from Time, Newsweek and the New York Post, which covered the story, are all included on the guest list.

The Left Coast Report wonders: With a radioactive entrée, do you serve white wine or red?

Us Weekly reports that the 23-year-old pop star recently had a congenital heart murmur corrected in a secret surgery session.

The announcement of whether Bass will actually be selected as one of the crew members for the upcoming space trip is scheduled for late May.

The Left Coast Report suggests that Bass may want to have his head examined as well, just for reassurance.

Notorious for trying to emulate success, the networks are jumping on "The Osbournes" bandwagon.

The latest knock-off being proposed involves TV cameras descending on the living room et al. of

Sources indicate that MTV has offered Anderson and husband-to-be $7 million to let viewers in on their private moments.

In 1998,

The Left Coast Report marvels at the wholesale acceptance of what amounts to voyeurism, and the willingness of certain individuals to auction off their privacy.

Like fact-ignoring, agenda-driven projects that preceded it, the film seeks to undermine the ability of honest citizens to defend themselves while focusing on raw emotion.

Moore lampoons a Michigan bank that, as a business incentive, gives out rifles to new account holders. He interviews a grieving father who bears on his person a photo of his son, a victim of the Columbine tragedy.

Moore includes in the film some footage from Columbine's surveillance cameras. He plays 911 tapes from panicked callers inside the school. And he even conducts an interview with

Later in the film, Moore takes two survivors from Columbine to the headquarters of Kmart. The boys show executives their scars. Kmart dutifully follows with an announcement that it won't be selling bullets anymore.

At its premiere in France, Moore's documentary received a prolonged standing ovation. United Artists has contracted for the film's U.S. distribution.

The Left Coast Report would enjoy seeing some conservative filmmakers answer Moore's manipulative fare. Perhaps a film version of John Lott's "More Guns, Less Crime" would be a good place to start.

Springsteen issued a statement echoing the famous words of Gen. Sherman to the 1884 GOP: "If nominated, I will not run; if elected, I will not serve."

Still, some people just seem to like the sound of Sen. Springsteen. The man who helped launch the political career of

Political consultant Doug Friedline heads a coalition called Independence for New Jersey. The group is trying to collect the 800 signatures of registered voters required to put the legendary musician on the November ballot. The Boss would be running against the Democrat incumbent,

The Left Coast Report senses that the Torricelli folks are worried that Springsteen's name recognition could end their glory days and leave them dancing in the dark.

Inspired by a fellow actress's decision to leave Hollywood six years ago, Arquette conducted interviews with 30 actresses, including Meg Ryan, Sharon Stone, Vanessa Redgrave, Gwyneth Paltrow, Daryl Hannah, Frances McDormand, Melanie Griffith and Jane Fonda, and turned the project into a documentary called "Searching for Debra Winger."

The film debuted recently at the Cannes festival, and it's packed with emotion. But the feelings expressed by the actresses involved are chiefly those of anger.

It seems that the women are mad at the male studio bosses for treating them as sex objects. They also resent being pressured into having to have surgery to enhance their looks.

Arquette describes what she thinks is driving the surgery mania. She says that Hollywood is a place "where youth is revered and physical perfection is achieved through body-altering surgery."

The Left Coast Report recalls the days when people talked about natural beauty radiating from within, and they believed what they said.
