BALTIMORE – You had to admit. Muhammad Ali could take a punch.
Unlike Donald Trump, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton, he was a real war hero. He stood up and faced his enemies on the draft board, rather than dodging them.
And when the feds walloped him as a criminal draft resister, Ali didn’t throw in the towel in a whimpering surrender to superior force.
Instead, he used his famous “rope-a-dope” technique. He let the feds wear themselves out punching him until he was ready to fight again.
