Arnold "The Governator" Schwarzenegger was the governor of California, and a former Mr. Universe body builder kinda guy. He also starred in many major motion pictures, which is not to call him an actor.
He was born in Austria, making him ineligible to run for President; nonetheless, eight attempts have been made by Congress to alter if not remove the natural-born-citizen clause from the U.S. Constitution. The time frame of these attempts of course overlap with Obama's rise to prominence, and is now used—conveniently without ever mentioning Arnold, naturally—by Birthers to prove that Congress was, like, in on it, man. It also makes us wonder in awe whenever he pushes for English to be the only and official language of the United States.
One of his early roles was as Conan in the 1982 film Conan the Barbarian, which might explain willingness to believe in alleged harassing behaviors towards the opposite sex. These allegations prompted Gary Trudeau to nickname him "Der Gropenfuhrer" in a Doonesbury episode.
California suffered big under his leadership, as he and the state legislature could not come to terms on the 2009 budget. Thus, as it was delayed, many state services shut down partially until the state finally agreed on a budget, which still kept the services underfunded. At one point in late summer 2009 the state issued IOUs to pay its bills. After this fiasco, Californians were ready for a change, and in a fit of hopeful nostalgia returned Moonbeam to the office in 2011.
