LA Times Reveals Contents of Explosive Political Tape

Oh wait, this one was potentially damaging to a Republican, so it was OK.
In the sanctuary of his Capitol office with an audio recorder rolling, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger describes Republican legislators as the “wild bunch” and, referring to a Latina lawmaker, casually says that “black blood” mixed with “Latino blood” equals “hot” – a fiery personality.

The governor is heard on a six-minute recording, obtained by The Times, of a meeting with some members of his inner circle last spring. At the time, Schwarzenegger was struggling to persuade Republican lawmakers to embrace his plan to place billions of dollars in borrowing on the November ballot.

It’s unclear why the session was taped, but Schwarzenegger occasionally records private meetings so that speechwriters, in particular, can keep a record of his thoughts and cadence. This audio recording mainly consists of relaxed banter among Schwarzenegger and a few aides, and it offers an unusually candid look at his administration when the doors are closed.

Funny, but when it comes to Republicans, they have no problems revealing contents of a tape.

But when it comes to Barack Obama, no can do. They're getting plenty of heat, but are trying to run out the clock for another six days.

Media bias? What media bias?
