Disgusting    

Seriously? She can't use a headset so she gets a driver to eat lunch? No wonder California is becoming the first failed state. That's a nice responsible empathic message to send to people who are struggling just to eat.

Pay the fines, get a headset, have humility and set an example.

And, the other comment was right. She is unpleasant in person.

Maria needs 3 citations with accompanying fines for being caught 3 times, then we'll all be satisfied. But nothing will happen because Ahnold didn't get a ticket for riding & crashing his motorcycle when he didn't have a motorcycle license, did he. Oh wait, he didn't get a ticket because the motorcycle had a sidecar attached so the vehicle fell into the automobile category thus no motorcycle license needed (!!!). Different rules for celebs and the emperor & empress of Callyfornia, once again.

TMZ is lame    

I think Arnold and Maria both believe they are above it all. They are growing old, largely irrelevant, Arnold has been given a pass that Davis never received from the media. He makes the same hypocritical appointments to bogus filler positions. I voted for the recall, I voted for Arnold but they have become and embarrassment.

First, the law doesn't apply to the new chosen in California. These people are above the law. They drive around with tinted windows on their 100,000 cars and never seem to get ticketed, why doesn't the Gov. get some legislation going for the little people to lawfully have tinted windows on windows all around, front and back. Wouldn't have to run my air conditioner as much therefore saving the environment. Then look at Maria, she isn't getting into a Prius, or a Ford Focus, she is getting into a 10MPG SUV. They talk green but all I smell is brown, as in poop.

Gee I thought if you do something wrong you get punished. Instead you get rewarded with a driver? If I break the law Mr. Governor do I get a driver? Well if you're part of the Kennedy clan you make your own rules, right?

I read alot of people complaining that taxpayers' dollars are being spent to pay for Maria's driver. After all it isn't as if this couple has any money of their own is it? (that was sarcasm for those who aren't aware) And who says she didn't get a ticket? The public does not have a right to know everything. At least she isn't driving and using her cell phone which is the main issue.

SaveALifeJUSTDRIVE.com is a $2.99 bumper sticker that could have
reminded Maria Shriver to concentrate on
driving.
That is a whole lot cheaper than a Personal Driver. Everyone doesn't have the resources to hire a driver.

We have to remind ourselves and others so we can avoid injury or death from careless unfocused drivers.

Those of you asking who pays for it, remember Arnold is wealthy. He was a huge movie star. He does not accept has California governor salary. If they can afford, it good for them.

The state isn't paying for her driver, Arnold made a few movies, remember??? He has his own money.

It's nice to see Mrs. Schwarzenneger coiffed to the nines, smiling broadly and dining out at a deliberately-chosen-for-its-ironic-value place named "La Conversation." Haha ha ha ha. So funny, she thinks. So silly. Stupid uneducated bourgeois.

Slap in the face to the public, much?

I THINK SO!

Slap in the face to her husband's station in life?

I THINK SO!

Great fun to amuse and show off to her powerful and wealthy Hollywood friends?

I THINK SO!

Her response to the outrage over her arrogant and illegal behavior is inappropriate and more than a little rebellious: a toss of the expensive hairdo, a shi-t-eating grin with those abnormally huge Kennedy chompers, well placed dual meaning remarks all aimed derisively at the outraged public and her intellectually challenged husband.

Yep, Maria. You sure are Joe Kennedy's noveau riche classless granddaughter. I'm sure you'd make that scofflaw miserable old dead bastard proud. You're a real class act (meant with derision.)

Not all of us disgusted by your condescending, entitled and privileged attitude are stupid and uneducated, you know. You are actually quite transparent. We know what you really are. And it is clear how you feel about the public.

Now all you Californians who voted these two in need to vote them OUT.

arnold is tasking california with being the leader in the "green" movement. last time i checked, large SUVS don't have a Prius badge on them and he uses many. there's his, maria's and his entourage. no less than five are used when he travels about the state. then, there's his private jet. gulf streams aren't the most efficient means of travel. he is not a leader. he had the potential but let inexperience take away any hope this state had.
