Schwarzenegger Sticks It To Assemblyman, Acrostic Style

Just a little eff you to to an ornery assemblyman from California's governor: Arnold Schwarzenegger sent a letter to the California Assembly on October 11 promising a veto of Assembly Bill 1176, which would deliver some state funding to San Francisco for waterfront restoration...and the first letter of each line spells out a special message, presumably for the bill's author, Democrat Tom Ammiano, who yelled "You lie!" at Schwarzenegger when the governor stepped up to the podium during an unannounced visit to a San Francisco Democratic Party gala earlier this month.

That's what you get when you cross a lame duck governor.
