Poor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The erstwhile savior of California has been reduced to shilling like an infomercial actor on behalf of his state. In a new radio ad, the Governator implores state residents to buy up $4 billion in short-term notes in order to "pay for schools, healthcare, and other very important services." The ad aired a week after it was revealed that the state has been unable to borrow the short-term loans it needs to remain solvent and might need a $7 billion loan from the federal government. Should it fail, Schwarzenegger might want to persuade residents the old-fashioned way: by calling them "girly-men" and threatening to "break" them.
