California Gov. has some 'espleinin' to do (UPDATE)

Tell me folks, should I still vote for this guy? What is latino blood? It must be green colored. I guess we [Cubans] are not only intransigent, but "feisty and temperamental" too.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger apologized Friday for saying during a closed-door meeting that Cubans and Puerto Ricans are naturally feisty and temperamental because of their combination of "black blood" and "Latino blood." Read more [here] and [video].

OK. The truth is that I voted for Arnold in the recall election against then Gov. Colorless Davis, and I will vote for him again in the next regular election. I was being rhetorical in asking the question. The truth is that Cuban and Puerto Ricans are HOT, and the only mistake made by Arnold was not listing a couple of additional blood types (Spanish, Taino, Chinese, and God knows what else). Anyway, the recorded conversation was about Bonnie Garcia, the only Republican woman in the State Legislature and a close allied of the Governor. Bonnie happens to be of Puerto Rican decent and “feisty.” She has not been offended at all, and has taken it as a compliment. Look at Bonnie’s picture and you decide if she is hot, I think she is and being Republican (and in California) makes her more so. Meanwhile, the LA Times and Arnold’s political opponent Phil Angelides are feverishly working to create a scandal.

I wasn't offended by his comments and don't understand why he had to apologize to anybody. He needs to find out who made the recording without his consent. These politicians always get in hot water when they open their mouth outside their home.
