Rocky Politics

This news story mentions that McCain plays the theme from Rocky at his campaign events. Granted, it's been quite a while since I watched Rocky, but I recall it's the story of a washed-up white boxer who can barely speak. The mentally-defective white boxer takes on a younger black boxer and yells "Adrian" in a poignant fashion, but the black guy wins the fight.*

Country first!

* I realize I'm not the first person to note the strangeness of McCain's choice of movie.

The movie made a lot of money, so maybe that's what he's getting at...

Zenn, maybe so. Or maybe it's just that Stallone is the only person they could find who wouldn't sue the campaign for playing his song at the McCain-Palin rallies.
