The McCain campaign is crowing today about the endorsement of their candidate by Rambo. Presumably Mac is eager to have his own answer to Chuck Norris, who has been such a hit pimping for Mike Huckabee.
But does anyone else find it incongruous that McCain, who has held Senate hearings on steroids in baseball, and just last month shamed the Rocket for his alleged Human Growth Hormone use — “I’m very disappointed with Roger Clemens” — is now locking arms with Sly Stallone?
This is the same Stallone, after all, who was convicted in Australia last May for illegally importing human growth hormone and testosterone into that country — including 48 vials of an HGH drug banned in the U.S.
Stallone, in court documents, claimed he needed the performance enhancing drugs for his latest Rambo flick, filmed in the jungles of Southeast Asia: “As you get older, the pituitary gland slows and you feel older, your bones narrow,” he said, “This stuff gives your body a boost and you feel and look good. Doing Rambo is hard work. Where do you think I am going to get this stuff in Burma?”
