Raging Bull

leave a comment »

My second real foray into politics comes with an interesting thought. The two Democratic candidates for President are locked in what has been compared to a heavy weight title fight for quite a while now. Just yesterday, it was pointed out by Townhall that Clinton compared herself to Rockey Balboa, a familiar hero to those in Pennsylvania (especially Philadelphia). Instead, AmSpec Blog believes the comparison is more accurate with “Raging Bull” Jake LaMotta, saying:

LaMotta, […] got beaten to a bloody pulp by Sugar Ray Robinson, had no chance to win, but refused to fall out of stubbornness, and the fight came to an end only after the ref intervened to stop it. Despite getting pummeled, a bloody LaMotta gloated to Robinson, “You never got me down, Ray.”

This is the proper metaphor for Clinton’s campaign after her string of primary losses a month or so ago.
