HENDERSON, NV.--Barack Obama strategist David Axelrod said California Gov. Arnold Schwarzengger--who said on the stump for John McCain that Obama needs to do something about his skinny legs--should play some hoops with Obama.
"I have to tell you, as someone who could use a little work, that Sen. Obama is pretty fit," Axelrod told reporters here Saturday morning, after an Obama rally.
"Maybe when this is over, we can get Gov. Schwarzenegger on the basketball court and see what he can do," Axelrod said. This was not a challenge. "No, it's just a suggestion."
In Columbus, Ohio, yesterday, where Schwarzenegger, who fame first came as a bodybuilder said of Obama, "He needs to do something about those skinny legs. I'm going to make him do some squats."
"And then we're going to make him do some biceps curls to beef up those scrawny little arms," he said, before comparing the meat on Obama's bones to a lack thereof on his policies.
