Schwarzenegger swears F-word in veto letter ‘wild coincidence’
The Republican governor was in Washington for an event with Vice President Joe Biden to praise the economic stimulus package as having successfully created jobs. He spoke afterward with reporters in front of the White House West Wing to tout it some more.
One question was about the veto letter he sent to members of the California State Assembly. Upon closer inspection, the first letters on each line in the second and third paragraphs spell out an epithet using the four-letter F-word that is usually hurled in anger.
“That was a total coincidence. It was a wild coincidence,” Schwarzenegger said without a smile.
Newspapers and blogs have made a lot of fun, calling it the “F-Bomb Letter,” and the governor the “Swearminator” in a reference to his former acting role as the “Terminator.”
Many were incredulous about the chances that the placement of the letters were pure happenstance.
But we heard from the governor himself today — it was a coincidence…
