Maybe the U.S. and Russia Should Be Like Rocky IV

Senator John McCain doesn't think that Russian leader -- and potential Bond Villain -- Vladimir Putin knows the Cold War is over. McCain told Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC:

I think many things and I'll try to be brief. One is a fundamental understanding of Vladimir Putin. They have been near delusional in thinking the Cold War was over... Maybe the president thinks the Cold War is over, but Vladimir Putin doesn't, and that's what this is all about.

But Secretary of State John Kerry disagrees, emphatically stating:

We don't see it that way. We do not believe this should be an East-West, Russia-United States. This is not Rocky IV, believe me. We don't see it that way.


But maybe it should be like Rocky IV. After all, it was Rocky Balboa's post-fight speech in Rocky IV that -- according to me -- helped end the Cold War.

"If I can change... and YOU can change... EVERYBODY can change!"

Could the Italian Stallion's wise words actually be the key to solving this latest crisis in Crimea?

Comedian Kevin Janus and I tell you what Rocky, Rambo and even Steven Seagal have to do with the craziness in Crimea on the latest (NSFW) episode of the Where The F**k Are We comedy podcast (WTFAW for the kids on iTunes). Have a listen!
