We thought we would put it right next to the Ass-Grabbing Concourse….
Gov. Shriverbanger longs for the days of smoke-filled backrooms:
California law strictly bans smoking in offices, bars and restaurants, but Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger a longtime cigar smoker has proposed converting the state Capitol’s interior courtyard into a “smoking plaza.”
Under the actor-turned-governor’s plan, part of the Capitol’s roof would be removed to create an area where legislators and other Sacramento visitors could smoke.
The governor’s spokeswoman, Terri Carbaugh, explained that Mr. Schwarzenegger wants to create an informal meeting and schmoozing area where he can smoke cigars with lawmakers and other power brokers.
“It’s a more positive environment where they can all be on an equal footing, as opposed to everyone going into the governor’s office where he’s behind his desk,” the spokeswoman said.
I’m sure there’s money in the budget for dismantling part of the roof so he can light up.
Priorities and all that…
