Arnold's latest "Truth" entry for the American
Legacy Foundation reprises the "mock job interview" theme launched a
few weeks ago, this time focusing on big business' love affair with acronyms.
Here, the faux-recruiter for a tobacco firm unveils AMPED: "Articulate
Motivated Passionate Energetic and Doesn't mind selling products that kill
about 50 Americans an hour." That acronym's not so funny. Luckily, the
actor's supremely smarmy performance—as he repeatedly asks the silent job
seeker, "Are you AMPED?" in deliveries that range from coaxing and
pleading to manic—is.
