Hillary Black Knight from Monty Python's Holy Grail

I wish I could take credit for this, but you'll have to go here to read a very funny comparison of Hillary to the Black Knight. I will say this, someone should get the Holy Hand Grenade and end her campaign.

WHICH movie is Hillary Clinton? In Pennsylvania, she liked to compare herself to Rocky, before it was pointed out that the plucky pugilist eventually lost to the black guy, Apollo Creed. Her supporters also like The Comeback Kid, for the title anyway.

Back in January, I thought she might be the Glenn Close character in Fatal Attraction, who kept springing from the bath to confront Barack Obama (played by Michael Douglas) every time you thought she was dead. And blogger Andrew Sullivan has compared the former first lady to the girl in Carrie whose hand emerges from the grave.

But after Clinton's win in Pennsylvania, I'm convinced the right movie is in fact Monty Python and the Holy Grail. More precisely, the scene in which Arthur — the Obama character — confronts the Black Knight (Hillary), lops off his arm and declares: "Now stand aside, worthy adversary." But the Black Knight refuses to succumb, declaring "'tis but a scratch" and it's "just a flesh wound" as Arthur dismembers him.

Update:
had to add the video:
