No budget? No worries as Schwarzenegger hits Vegas

SACRAMENTO - How is Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger killing time between budget negotiations? Vegas, baby!

Schwarzenegger said "Hasta la vista" to his day job for a few hours Wednesday, jetting off to Las Vegas to help his friend, Sylvester Stallone, promote his the new action flick "The Expendables."

The governor makes a cameo appearance in the film.

Schwarzenegger posted a short video on Twitter Thursday showing him attending a red-carpet event with Stallone the previous night. He also posted a picture of the two action heroes eating sushi.

Last week, Schwarzenegger attended the Hollywood premiere of "The Expendables" at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles. There he was met by members of a state workers union upset over his furlough plan.

They held up signs that read: "State Workers Are Not Expendable."
