Remember when Muhammad Ali fought George Foreman in Zaire back in 1974?
(What the hell is he talking about?)
Well, for you older readers, surely you will never forget the rope-a-dope tactic Ali used to get Foreman to punch himself into exhaustion in the hot outdoor weather of Zaire, at which point Ali came off the ropes and knocked him out.
Check out this CNN interview of Rick ("Hit & Run") Sanchez as he comes out swinging against a real pro named Ann Coulter-and promptly gets a licking from the lady who doesn't even bother wasting any time on the ropes. Also notice how the interview begins, as Sanchez obviously tries to ambush Coulter with a topic other than what Coulter was told would be the topic. Cute trick, Rick. (No, that's not why they call him "Hit & Run".)
I think Rick Sanchez learned a lesson in that interview. He needs more seasoning before he tries to go toe to toe with Ann Coulter.
And don't even think about a rematch.
