Rising comedian John Kerry clogs timelines with ‘Rocky IV’ love


It took “Saturday Night Live’s” Tina Fey to bring a (greatly distorted) version of Sarah Palin’s “I can see Russia” line to the public consciousness, and four years later, rising political comedian John Kerry appended his own punchline: “Mitt Romney talks like he’s only seen Russia from watching ‘Rocky IV.’”

Fact checking John Kerry's speech will require asking a dead terrorist if he's better off than in 2008 and IMDBing Rocky IV

Kerry might have thought he was staying on message, but his one-off line sent “Rocky IV” trending up the Twitter charts in an online love-fest of cinematic cheese.

@heidimcoudal Did you notice that Rocky IV is currently trending! Ha!

Rocky IV is still trending. Ivan Drago would be proud.

The degree to which Rocky does not keep his hands up in Rocky IV cannot be overstated.

We need to quit tweeting Rocky IV. It's now on the trending list. Sly Stallone might get ideas for another sequel.

FACT CHECK: Rocky IV is actually the second best Rocky movie, behind the original.

John Kerry's reference to Rock IV is definitely among my top 25 Rocky IV references at a national political convention. #DNC2012

Whoever wrote the Rocky IV reference in Kerry's speech deserves a promotion ASAP

Seconded. RT @TheFix: Rocky's final speech in "Rocky IV" is among the greatest of all time. http://t.co/MClhac9U
