When Arizona Sen. John McCain announced his support for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's reform agenda this week, the one-time presidential candidate didn't spare any barbs for his neighboring state or the governor's previous career.
"I just completed filming a cameo on the set of "24," McCain said during a press conference at the Hilton Burbank Airport and Convention Center. "I hope my performance will be better than 'Red Sonia' and 'Hercules.'"
He was referring to two of Schwarzenegger's early films, which were not well accepted by critics.
"That was below the belt," Schwarzenegger dead-panned as many at the conference laughed.
McCain also found a playful way to jab at Southern California's water acquisition when he said Arizona did have enough water of its own without California stealing some of it.
