Public-policy conferences are usually not the ideal setting for cracking jokes, but GOVERNOR ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER had em rolling in the aisles at one such conference in Monterey, California, Monday.

As you know, Arnold is a Republican and he's married to MARIA SHRIVER, a Kennedy and a Democrat. Arnold told the audience his sex life suffered after he endorsed President Bush at the GOP Convention this past summer. Arnold said, quote, "There was no sex for 14 days. Everything comes with side effects."

On the topic of presidential debates, Arnold said if he wanted to see a liberal Democrat and a Republican leader argue, he'd just take his wife out to dinner. Arnold also said he was jealous of Bush and Kerry because they only had to debate three times. Arnold said he has to do it every morning at breakfast.
