Schwarzenegger Is Joker and Jokee at Gridiron Dinner


Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger got some laughs as the Republican speaker at the Gridiron Club's political roast in Washington, D.C. last night.

President Barack Obama skipped the annual dinner to spend a long weekend with his family in Camp David.

Schwarzenegger explained his abscence to the media and politicians assembled at a downtown Washington ballroom.

"He's just not that into you," he said, referring to the book and movie with that title.

Democratic Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm got in a few partisan digs at the former actor and fellow governor. She asked him which of his movies best prepared him to deal with a party led by radio commentator Rush Limbaugh and Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele.

The choices she offered him? "True Lies" or "Kindergarten Cop."
