The latest on California politics and government

The Capitol Alert caption contest is back!

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger spotted a familiar object Sept. 3 while surveying the damage caused by Station Fire at Vogel Flats near Tujunga, California.

The fires are no laughing matter, but we thought our oh-so-clever readers could find plenty to chuckle about in this photo of the former Mr. Universe pumping iron. In the background are Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff (left) and Insurance Commissioner and GOP gubernatorial candidate Steve Poizner (right).

For those of you new to Capitol Alert's caption contest, the process is pretty simple:

1. Look at the picture.
2. Pick a caption.
3. E-mail it to us.

When sending in submissions feel free to request anonymity. Only those willing to have their real names published, however, can win the grand prize: a $25 gift card to Starbucks.

Because it's a holiday weekend, we'll give you a little extra time to get those creative juices flowing. Entries are due by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 9. Send submissions to
