McCain Touts Endorsement of HGH Smuggler


That would be Sylvester Stallone. Rolling Stone explains:

…does anyone else find it incongruous that McCain, who has held Senate hearings on steroids in baseball, and just last month shamed the Rocket for his alleged Human Growth Hormone use — "I'm very disappointed with Roger Clemens" — is now locking arms with Sly Stallone?

This is the same Stallone, after all, who was convicted in Australia last May for illegally importing human growth hormone and testosterone into that country — including 48 vials of an HGH drug banned in the U.S.

Rocky's unapologetic about it, too:

"HGH (human growth hormone) is nothing," the 61-year-old actor tells Time magazine in its Feb. 4 issue. "Anyone who calls it a steroid is grossly misinformed."

Because it is nearly undetectable, HGH has become a substance of great concern in major league baseball and other sports battling allegations of rampant doping.

"Testosterone to me is so important for a sense of well-being when you get older," he says. "Everyone over 40 years old would be wise to investigate it because it increases the quality of your life. Mark my words. In 10 years it will be over the counter."

He's right. HGH is a kind of miracle drug, and the fuss over it is silly. Maybe he can talk some sense into McCain.
