What is Arianna Huffington?
She is cat people I am almost certain of it. A disgusting ho. I believe Nicole has patterned her life plan, in part, around Arianna Huffington. She would be Nicole's primary role model after Lucille Ball, Beyonce, Cher, Cleopatra, and Lucifer. Arianna is the perfect talking head in the US for the 21st Century. Were did she come from and why does she think she can come here and run for a high elected office in California? Have Californians given up on public service? When did we stop electing people born and raised here, who have paid their dues, and earned it the old fashioned way? This state has become a JOKE.
She met oil millionaire Michael Huffington, a family friend of the Bushes at a 1985 party hosted by Ann Getty in San Francisco. The couple were married in 1986 at a wedding paid for by Ann Getty, who had declared that she needed to find Ariana a husband. They moved to Washington, D.C., when he was appointed to serve as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Negotiations Policy. They later established residency in Santa Barbara, California, in order for him to run in 1992 as a Republican for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, which he won by a significant margin. He was a political conservative on most issues. Arianna campaigned for her husband, courting religious conservatives, arguing for smaller government and a reduction in welfare. In 1994 he narrowly lost the race for the U.S. Senate seat from California to incumbent Dianne Feinstein.
The couple divorced in 1997, and in 1998 Michael Huffington disclosed his bisexuality. A 1999 magazine article claimed that Arianna Huffington "entered the marriage... with full knowledge of Michael Huffington's sexual interests in men". The financial terms of their divorce agreement remain undisclosed, but Huffington gained most of her wealth from her husband. Arianna Huffington chose to retain her former husband's surname, although she had been known as Arianna Stassinopoulos Huffington during the period of her marriage.
California recall election participation
Huffington was an independent candidate to replace California governor Gray Davis in the 2003 recall election. She described her candidacy against front-runner Arnold Schwarzenegger as "the hybrid versus the Hummer," making reference to her ownership of a hybrid vehicle, the Toyota Prius, and Schwarzenegger's Hummer.
Despite briefly retaining former U.S. Senator Dean Barkley as a campaign advisor and advertising executive Bill Hillsman as her media director, she dropped out of the race on September 30, 2003. "I'm pulling out, and I'm going to concentrate every ounce of time and energy over the next week working to defeat the recall because I realize now that's the only way to defeat Arnold Schwarzenegger," she said. Others attributed her exit to her inability to garner support for her candidacy, noting that polls showed that only about two percent of likely California voters planned to vote for her at the time of her withdrawal. Though she failed to stop the recall, Huffington's name still appeared on the ballot and she placed 5th in a field of 135 candidates, capturing 0.6 percent of the votes. Her former husband endorsed Schwarzenegger.
Huffington has said that she embraces spirituality. Her book The Fourth Instinct is based on the idea that all humans have an inherent spiritual yearning.
After her attempts to woo the religious right, in 1994, Doonesbury Cartoonist Garry Trudeau created a spoof of Arianna Huffington's spiritual experiences with a Los Angeles-based spiritual organization founded by John-Roger, the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness. The purpose of the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness (MSIA) is to teach Soul Transcendence, which is becoming aware of yourself as a Soul and as one with God, not as a theory but as a living reality. Huffington has said that "I've been involved with John-Roger and the church for many years now" Tax returns show Huffington as an MSIA donor.
Huffington has also courted conservative Christian Republicans, commonly referred to as the Religious Right, by advocating a removal of the welfare state, to be replaced by voluntary charitable donation, stating that "big government cheats people out of the spiritual rewards of giving to the needy". "It's time to bring God into the public square," Arianna Huffington declared, while giving a talk on The Fourth Instinct before a Republican women's conference.
More recently, Huffington has criticized the Christians of the Republican party as those "who don't believe in evolution but believe in torture". Her weblog, The Huffington Post, has three of the world's most respected writers on atheism as contributors: Sam Harris (The End of Faith); Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion); Christopher Hitchens (God is not Great).
Arianna latched on to Michael Huffington in a big way. She is merely a socialite and failed politician. She is anti-God. Her political views have swayed back and forth over the years as she continues to shape-shift into what she believes makes her popular.
Why should anyone care what she thinks? Nicole could you please use your ESP powers to find your Sugar Daddy's plane? Maybe you should take Talan, Raja Bell, and Tom Kaulitz to keep you company. What's-his-face Hamilton can be your designated driver.
