Schwarzenegger pumps iron into McCain's Campaign before McCain goes on SNL!

John McCain has been hitting the state of Ohio hard this week in an effort to shave Obama's lead off in the key battleground state before Tuesday. The Republican's campaign has scheduled more stops there Saturday, and it has put an emphasis on Pennsylvania as well. "Our position in these states is strong and undecided voters continue to have a very favorable impression of our candidate," campaign manager Rich Davis said.

In Columbus, Ohio, the great Arnold Schwarzenegger himself energised a crowd at a McCain rally with a speech that mixed a healthy helping of jokes with praise for the Republican presidential candidate."You look all pumped up. You look ready to elect John McCain president of the United States," Schwarzenegger said.

The Governator, added that "John McCain served longer in a POW camp than his opponent has in the United States Senate. Ladies and gentlemen, I only play an action hero in my movies, but John McCain is a real action hero."

In other news: Aides to Senator McCain said that he will make a detour from battleground states to appear tonight on Saturday Night Live, the late-night comedy show that has been a must-watch for many during the political season, including myself in fact. When McCain hosted SNL in 2002, he mocked Barbra Streisand's political advocacy by performing a medley of her songs.

When Sarah Palin, appeared on the show some weeks ago, it earned its best ratings in 14 years. Former star and head writer Tina Fey, a Palin lookalike, has been at the center of the show's recent parodies of the campaign.
