If you haven’t seen this, it’s a pretty slick video created in support of Barack Obama, aka Baracky (or Barocky). The Baracky video portrays Senator Barack Obama as Rocky Balboa from Rocky II, while Senator Hillary Clinton is portrayed as Apollo Creed. Whoever did the editing did a pretty good job of splicing together news clips, sound bites, and audio and video from the original Rocky II movie. See for yourself…Baracky video (along with the trans-script and lyrics) is below.
Update: Check out the Baracky 2 movie!

INTRO QUOTE FOR BARACKY VIDEO: “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
TED KENNEDY: Do you believe that America is the land of opportunity?
BARACK OBAMA AS BAROCKY (ROCKY BALBOA): Yeah.
BARACK OBAMA AS BARACKY (ROCKY BALBOA): There have been periods of time in our history where a president inspired the American people to be better.
BARACK OBAMA AS BAROCKY (ROCKY BALBOA): Part of what the people are looking for right now is somebody who’s gonna solve problems and not resort to the same typical politics that we’ve seen in Washington.
HILLARY CLINTON (APOLLO CREED): This lucky club fighter does not have the skill to last 5 minutes in the ring with me. This is very personal for me. This is certainly about me, and it’s about me being a woman. I found my own voice. I want a whole new campaign started. I want something done to jar this man’s pride. I want something done to get the people around him talking.
DAVID SHUSTER, MSNBC CORRESPONDENT: That’s when the Clinton campaign launched it’s kitchen sink strategy.
HILLARY CLINTON (APOLLO CREED): It’s time for his campaign to get out of the gutter. Shame on you Barack Obama. Enough with the speeches…and the big rallies…and then using tactics that are right out of Karl Rove’s playbook.
BARACK OBAMA AS BARACKY (ROCKY BALBOA): The notion that somehow we’re engaging in nefarious tactics is pretty hard to swallow.
HILLARY CLINTON (APOLLO CREED): Now I could just stand up here and say, “Let’s just get everybody together…the sky will open…and everyone will know we should do the right thing and the world will be perfect.”
BARACK OBAMA AS BAROCKY (ROCKY BALBOA): The implication is is that the people who have been voting for me or involved in my campaign are somehow delusional…
KEITH OLBERMANN: You are now campaigning as if Barack Obama were the Democrat and you were the Republican. As Shakespeare wrote senator, that way madness lies.
[Hillary Clinton laughing]
VARIOUS CLIPS: Mathematically, Hillary Clinton just doesn’t have a path to nomination. I want Hillary to stay in this. We need Barack Obama bloodied up. She is in full kamikaze mode. I’m not gonna let this thing be decided by democracy…That’s what she’s saying.
HILLARY CLINTON (APOLLO CREED): I want all of Philadelphia…I want all of America…I want the whole world to see me destroy this man.
BARACK OBAMA AS BARACKY (ROCKY BALBOA): She seems very upset.
HILLARY CLINTON (APOLLO CREED): Nobody goes the distance with me!
WOMAN: Do you think you have brain damage?
REV. JEREMIAH WRIGHT, FORMER PASTOR: Americans’ chickens…are coming home…to roost.
BILL O‘REILLY, FOX NEWS ANCHOR: No question that Reverend Wright is a problem. So Senator Obama will have to deal with it. Just how will be very interesting.
BARACK OBAMA AS BARACKY (ROCKY BALBOA): We, the people; these simple words launched America‘s improbable experiment in democracy.
VARIOUS CLIPS: It was an amazing speech…(mumbled words)…worthy of Abraham Lincoln.
BARACK OBAMA AS BAROCKY (ROCKY BALBOA): Our movement is real and change is coming to America.
HILLARY CLINTON (APOLLO CREED): I‘m not just running on a promise of change. I‘m running on 35 years of change. I have a lifetime of experience. Senator Obama has a speech he gave in 2002.
BARACK OBAMA AS BARACKY (ROCKY BALBOA): Are you serious?
HILLARY CLINTON (APOLLO CREED): I remember landing under sniper fire…and we just ran with our heads down.
KEITH OLBERMANN: At what point does repeated mis-speaking become lying?
HILLARY CLINTON (APOLLO CREED): So I made a mistake. That happens. It proves I’m human, which you know, for some people is a revelation.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It is now time for a new generation of leadership.
BARACK OBAMA AS BARACKY (ROCKY BALBOA): Change will not come…if we wait for some other person…or, if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Yes we can!
CROWD: Obama! Obama! Obama! Obama!
