Admittedly, it would be a perfect fit: Who’s more qualified to peddle the most expensive myth in history than a guy who made a fortune in fiction?

Is Arnold Schwarzenegger angling for a job in the Obama administration?

In an interview with editors at the Los Angeles Times, the outgoing California governor said he was in “no rush” to find a new job when his term ends next month. But asked specifically whether he’d consider a post working for President Obama, he said yes and began to “riff on his credentials,” according to the Times’ David Lauter.

Schwarzenegger, who counts legislation combating global warming as one of his signature achievements in office, suggested he might be interested in a post dealing with energy or the environment.
[…]
It’s not a far-fetched idea. Obama has often mentioned Schwarzenegger as someone he’s like to have in the Cabinet, citing his work on climate change. For months, there have been rumors in Washington that the former action star might join the administration as a climate change czar or as an adviser on energy and the environment.

Schwarzenegger would no doubt commute to this new hypothetical “get people to cut carbon emissions” job in his private Gulfstream jet, which, oddly enough, is the kind of thing Arnold says gives him credibility on environmental issues:

Schwarzenegger said he has credibility on that issue, and “people are very receptive when I talk about these things because I’m a Hummer driver … not a tree hugger.”

True, he’s not a tree hugger. Hypocrite, yes… but tree hugger, no.

Last year, Schwarzenegger, above, demonstrated to Californians how global warming will somehow cause a giant hand to cover San Francisco’s Treasure Island unless more taxpayer money is given to Al Gore and labor unions
