McCain’s Celebrity Double-Standard?

Jarrett

I'm wondering if anyone out there has a quote from McCain supporting Schwarzenegger when the latter was running for governor? Perhaps some choice morsel in which he defends Arnold against attacks that he's not qualified to be governor because he's just a celebrity? Or is a celebrity sufficiently qualified to lead if his pecs are big enough? What is McCain's standard regarding celebrity pecs and executive office? Would be interesting - I know McCain supported Commando in his initial run - there's got to be something out there.
