Governor's comment a little too close for comfort?

Governor tells voters Democrats have to go / Budget fight turns into broad clash over state government

"The governor sparked an uproar Saturday when he referred to the Legislature as 'girlie-men,'' a reference to an old 'Saturday Night Live' skit in which Schwarzenegger-mimicking body-builders spoke mockingly of weaklings. The comment offended women's groups, gay and lesbian groups and many Democrats."
