Letter to Ammiano
Did California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s use a coded veto message to send the f-bomb to Tom Ammiano, soon after the San Francisco assemblyman made news by telling the governor to “kiss my gay ass”?
A straight reading of Schwarzenegger letter laments “the fact that major issues are overlooked while many unnecessary bills come to me for consideration,” and concludes, “I believe it is unnecessary to sign this measure at this time.”
But a vertical read of the far-left-hand letters in each of the missive’s eight lines offers a more blunt explanation: ” f*** you”.
Schwarzenegger’s press secretary, Aaron McLear, insisted Tuesday it was simply a “weird coincidence”.
The message came after Ammiano called the governor a liar and shouted from the audience to “kiss my gay ass” when Schwarzenegger unexpectedly showed up at a Democratic Party dinner in San Francisco on Oct. 7.
Ammiano, a professional comic in addition to being a liberal Democrat, he’s playing it straight on this one: “He probably thinks we are even now,” he said.
