Gams to Gladiators

It’s beginning to look like Maureen Dowd has a thing for Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Schwarzenegger does understand show business though, which includes, of course, modern politics. As Dowd reports: “Asked about the Britney-Madonna kiss, he takes a P.R. view of it, calling Madonna ‘very smart’: ‘When they decide the one shot from the whole show that’s going to be in The L.A. Times or The New York Times, is it going to be you, or is it going to be someone else? I can relate to that.'”
