Republican strongman Arnold Schwarzenegger kicks ‘sand in his face’ – calls Obama "scrawny!"

The California governor delighted a throng at McCain rally in Ohio by mocking Obama’s policies and his slender physique.

The Austrian born former action hero and Mr. Universe traditionally hosts a body building tournament.

"I want to invite Senator Obama because he needs to do something about those skinny legs," the Governator stated. "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. But if he could only do something about putting some meat on his ideas.

"Senator McCain on the other hand is built like a rock. His character and his views are solid."

Obama’s camp responded by challenging the stocky Austrian to a game of one-on-one basketball.

Bam campaign guru David Axelrod said, "Get Governor Schwarzenegger on the basketball court and see what he can do."

Of course, Obama cherishes his hoops, making it famous with a daily routine on the B-ball court during the primaries with then-opponent Sen. Hillary Clinton.
