Election season is in the air, and now the real fun -- trash talking, negative campaigning, more walking backwards in TV spots, etc. -- begins in earnest. But LAist stumbled upon this funny and semi-educational site, courtesy of Phil Angelides' campaign. (He's the Democrat running against the gubernator next month, in case you didn't know the name.)

The Bush Buddies site ( allows users to design their very own "Bush Buddy Arnold" -- selecting wardrobe, accessories and sayings -- to match the different facets (or is that shifting positions?) of Schwarzenegger, including the:

- *Too Cool for School Arnold* - *Actually raises tuition and fees!*
- *Special Interest Arnold* - *Featuring money bag accessories!*
- *Too Healthy to Care Arnold* - *Kicks nurses' butts!*
