The Shirlanator

From Reuter's:

In the interview, [Shirley]Temple Black, who later became a diplomat and served as ambassador to Czechoslovakia and Ghana, saw a number of parallels between her campaign and Schwarzenegger's effort in the October recall vote against Governor Gray Davis.
Her run in the Republican primary also lasted two months in a lively atmosphere, and she was subject to some hardball politics, as Democrats warn Schwarzenegger will face.
"The political cartoonists had a lot of fun with me. They showed me as a six-year-old or a five-year-old kicking LBJ in the shins," she recalled. "That also probably hurt my campaign a bit because it was probably difficult to look at a woman and not see the seven-year old tap dancing."
The opposition candidates, who included eventual winner Pete McCloskey, succeeded in casting doubt that Temple Black was a serious candidate.

Others on Arnold:

“What does being famous have to do with governing? I like him as an actor but this is real life. It's not a movie."
