Rocky Balboa Was A Fighter, Just Like Hillary!
You knew that when the Presidential campaign hit Philadelphia that at least one candidate was going to say "I'm just like Rocky," right? The only question was which politician would be the first to compare him or herself to the famous movie boxer who lost in a split decision to a black man who was later killed. You'll never guess who's America's next Rocky Balboa!
It's quick-footed Hillary Clinton, who today told AFL-CIO members, "Let me tell you something, when it comes to finishing a fight, Rocky and I have a lot in common. I never quit." We look forward to seeing her run up the steps of the Museum of Art in an unflattering grey jersey pantsuit.
The Republican National Committee has pointed out that Sylvester Stallone, who invented Rocky, is supporting John McCain for president.
Meanwhile, Barack Obama seems to have no comment except that he is terrible at bowling.
