Tom Cruise for President!

Lawrence Wright, a widely respected reporter whose most famous book is about religious fanatics trying to kill us all, is out with a new book about Scientology, full of juicy details and revelations. The best so far? Perhaps that Tom Cruise eyed Arnold Schwarzenegger’s political career with some jealousy. According to the book, Cruise once told Scientology’s leader: “If f–ing Arnold can be governor, I could be president.” The Scientology leader reportedly agreed, but … no. No, that’s not going to happen. Remember what happened to Mitt Romney when his secret “47 percent” video was leaked? Just imagine what an opposing campaign would do with this. Or this. Or this. Arnold only had to deal with rampant sexual harassment and affairs. That was a breeze, in comparison. [US Weekly]
