The most shocking thing that happened on Super Tuesday

Shaquille O'Neal was traded from The Miami Heat to The Phoenix Suns.

Oh and also, Barack and Hillary continued to stage their political reenactment of Rocky IV.

We are currently in the montage part of the movie. This is where, late in the fight, Drago and Rocky trade fierce, pummeling blows to the tune of an Orchestrated Rocky Theme.

Rocky has earned his Drago's respect, but Drago is still an inhuman machine who will cheat to win and is fighting for an evil empire.

Can you tell who's who in my scenario? I'm trying my best to obscure the metaphor.



P.S. My friend, who supports Barack, put it best. He said, "I can't believe Barack is doing so well, and yet, I am still incredibly disappointed."

P.P.S. Dammit, I love YouTube!

do you think that the composer of the music did it "ironically" or did they really believe that they were making some vangelis, chariots of fire type inspirational music? oh man, is it cheesy. and i am embarrassed to remember my 12 yr old self absolutely loving this movie and not noticing the lame flag-waving anti-soviet hysteria. yikes.

and, um, let me guess ... hillary = drago? and that would mean that barack = rocky? really?

So, that means in the end Barocky wins, right? And not just a moral victory. I'm sure I saw at least one or two of the Rocky movies, but they didn't make a dent in my memory.

oops, i just now realized that almost all of the comments on this blog are from people who actually know mr. bell himself. i'm feel foolish and sorry to intrude on this ... i've heard him on the radio and read his blog for daily laughs, so i thought i could chime in.

i'm going to the march 2nd show at jcc in berkeley, so maybe i can introduce myself and not feel so stupid about commenting.

anyways, keep on writing and observing and making all of us (friends and strangers alike) think and scratch our heads while laughing out loud.
