  • In which the Governator asks Brian Wilson to be on his Brain Trust
We noted earlier that even Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger -- who grew up in an era before baseball expanded past the Mississippi (and to Austria) -- is hip to "The Machine."

Schwarzenegger is also our favorite political user of Twitpics. Any photograph featuring Arnold is decidedly surreal -- and the captions are often utterly hilarious (especially when read aloud in an Arnold voice). So, without further ado, here's your two-term governor and a bemused Brian Wilson from Schwarzenegger's Twitter feed.

Actually, there are numerous wonderful shots in Schwarzenegger's trove:


Here's a shot of Arnold explaining the state budget to his chocolate lab, Gustav. From this we find out that the governor enjoys using dogs as humorous props. And he has a dog named Gustav.

Arnold actually bought this sweatshirt.

Arnold hobnobs with FDR and fellow cigar aficionado, Winston Churchill.
