This week has brought us an interesting back and forth that started with California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger saying about Iowa, “There’s no one screaming, like, ‘I can’t wait to get to Iowa.’ That I can guarantee you. They want to come here to California.”

Iowa Governor Chet Culver defended the state in a rather unusual back and forth with a tv reporter in eastern Iowa. The reporter tried again and again to get Culver, the former college football player, to say he could take Arnold, the former bodybuilder.

The story keeps going in San Francisco this weekend.

Here’s the link.

Could a celebrity deathmatch be next for this battle of big dudes? Surely, NBC could find room in its prime-time lineup, right? Or maybe the Culver-Ah-nold cage battle could be a late addition to the WWE in Des Moines at Wells Fargo Arena later this month???

Let’s not forget this classic moment as a reminder of Culver’s chances… Sylvester Stallone had a death-defying comeback with his battle with Ah-nold a few years back.
