The phrase California governor Arnold Schwartzenegger used to refer to the democratic legislature in the capital for not appealing to the needs of Californians, and also brought criticism from the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Caucus because it was "misogynist as it is anti-gay"


The insult was first used in the Saturday Night Live skit "Pumping Up with Hans and Frans," which made fun of Schwartzenegger when he was half bodybuilder/half actor.
