Did Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's office 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"?
Schwarzenegger's people say no. But the X-rated evidence is hard to miss in a message that Schwarzenegger sent to explain why he was vetoing an Ammiano bill dealing with financing for the Port of San Francisco.
A straight reading of the guv's 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: "If- you."

Everyone's writing about this, so I might as well, too. The Governator got a little too mischievous with his veto message: Guv's F-you: Coincidence, or Dig at Ammiano?
Fine. He's brought discredit to his office, etc. But, the Innocent Little Lamb routine from liberals and progressives acting huffy is a bit much. There is a lot more cursing and insults flowing from the Left than from the Right. Let's try to be adults about this and let it go.
