schwartzenegger_engstrom008-copy-300x205.jpgHold the lame duck jokes, kids, Arnold Schwarzenegger will make the opening statement at LA Press Club’s annual awards gala. Yes, Ah-nold and Kathy Griffin will attend. This is a weird business in a weird town during a weird time and the LA Press Club’s line-up fully represents that.

From their release:

America’s most famous immigrant, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, joins Haiti recovery activist and Oscar winner Sean Penn and outrageously hilarious comedian Kathy Griffin in honoring CNN anchor Anderson Cooper at the LA Press Club’s Journalism Awards Gala, June 27 in the Crystal Room of the Biltmore Hotel.
