Has Hillary Actually Ever Seen Rocky?

So, lets chalk this one up to either hack speech writers or just a stupid staff. Recently, while Hillary was trying to relate to folks in Pennsylvania, she compared herself to Rocky Balboa from the movie Rocky.
“Let me tell you something, when it comes to finishing a fight, Rocky and I have a lot in common. I never quit. I never give up. And neither do the American people,” Clinton said. (Source)
What makes this so rich, and her so stupid is… Well, as everyone recalls, in the movie, Rocky loses to the black guy.

h/t Scott’s Morning Brew (he covers this too)

Stallone also endorsed McCain. So, if she's like Rocky, does that mean she likes McCain?

I love the signs.

It's clear to me that Hillary was trying to place herself in a context with which she thinks Pennsylvanians identify. I didn't realize that the Rocky movie(s) where such a big part of their identity-Hillary thinks so. She's really inept when it comes to such things and should avoid future attempts. It makes her look really corny. And maudlin is first cousin to pathetic.
