NOT BAD FOR A CYBORG. But the nets missed a chance to cut to Dick Cheney when Arnold Schwarzenegger said, "And when Nelson Mandela smiled in election victory after all those years in prison, America celebrated, too."

Cheney, when he was a Wyoming congressman, voted against a 1986 resolution calling for Mandela to be freed from a South African prison.

Charles Pierce notes at TAPPED that the Governator also took a cheap shot at Hubert Humphrey, to wit:

I remember watching the Nixon and Humphrey presidential race on TV. A friend who spoke German and English, translated for me. I heard Humphrey saying things that sounded like socialism, which is what I had just left.Humphrey's achievements include a 1948 convention speech that help drive the racists out of the Democratic party, the Voting Rights Act, Medicare and the Peace Corps.
