Rocky Who?

By on 10.31.07 | 8:12AM

Last night I mentioned Obama's joke in which he compared himself to Rocky, with Clinton as Apollo Creed. I thought it was a lame attempt to appeal to the Philadephia audience where the debate was being held. However, the gang over at Tapped seemed to be a bit more perplexed, scratching their heads over the "complicated" "convoluted" "sports story" told by Obama. As somebody who has been known to use Rocky metaphors, I found this shocking. I wonder if it's a male/female thing, a regional thing, or a generational thing, but--and I mean this with no offense intended--it's just pretty startling to me that there are people out there that don't have at least passing knowledge of the life and times of the Italian Stallion.
