Hillary has Ed Rendell.
But pound-for-pound, the Philly muscle is with Sly Stallone.
Who’s he backing?
"I like McCain a lot," he told Fox News, as aired this morning. "A lot. And you know, things may change along the way, but there’s something about matching the character with the script. And right now, the script that’s being written and reality is pretty brutal and pretty hard-edged like a rough action film, and you need somebody who’s been in that to deal with it."
Quipped McCain: "I’m going to Philadelphia and running up the steps."
Somebody get Johnny Mack a plate full of scrapple!
UPDATE: ABC News Political Director David Chalian notes that just now, in West Palm Beach, "in jest McCain just got all stern and faux tough when asked about his Stallone endorsement."
"Look out Chuck Norris," McCain mockingly warned the action star who has endorsed Mike Huckabee, "Sylvester Stallone is coming after you and he’s going to get you! Chuck you can run but you can’t hide!"
