Lawmakers and reporters put on skits and fake TV spots poking fun at Schwarzenegger. The governor also fired back at the press with jokes like this one about veteran LA Times columnist George Skelton.

“He’s getting to an age now where let’s be honest, the guy was born when the dead sea was still sick,” Schwarzenegger said.

But Schwarzenegger also made some serious remarks, assuring everyone that he doesn’t plan to stop working in the near future.

“Now I know that a lot of you know that I only have a few weeks left, but I don’t believe in holding back,” Schwarzenegger said. “I’m going to charge through the finish lines, and I’m going to do as much work as possible.”

The governor also thanked his staff, the press corps and state employees for their efforts over the past seven years.
