Rambo, McCain: It’s only a coincidence

Sylvester Stallone today endorsed John McCain, Vietnam POW, for President. I’m sure it absolutely, positively has nothing to do with a certain film that’s opening tomorrow. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence.

Stallone said of McCain, a Vietnam war veteran who spent more than five years as a prisoner of war, that “there’s something about matching the character with the script.”

“And right now, the script that’s being written and reality is pretty brutal and pretty hard-edged like a rough action film, and you need somebody who’s been in that to deal with” it.

…I think.

    The fact that “Meet the Spartans” beat out “Rambo” at the box office suggests that Stallone’s desperate attempt to promote his movie was needed.
    Desperate times call for desperate measures.
    Anyway, I don’t how anyone who has seen Rocky IV can suggest that Stallone has lowered his standards.

    Hey, I liked Rocky IV. Brigitte Nielsen, James Brown, Rocky jogging to the top of Mt. Everest… What’s not to like?
