Our new State Dept. official....Dennis Rodman.

    Aren't you glad Dennis Rodman stepped forward to go to North Korea and meet with Kim Jong-Un?
    Or was that Psy? They look alike to me. Anyway Mr. Rodman replied to a question of what he thought about all the political prisoners in North Korea by saying we had the exact same thing here.
    Do we agree even though he is clueless?

      @barefoot:

      Did Rodman get some credibility when George Stephanopoulus gave him the time of his life  during that Good Morning America interview? . Who would think that Stephanopoulus would stain his reputation as a journalist by interviewing such a non-entity?

        Well you know that icon of intelligence Piers Morgan thinks he did that right thing, "As least he did something".
        Problem is he doesn't matter.

        Not in the same manner North Korea has political prisoners.

      If you seriously can't tell Psy and Kim Jong-Un you have real issues.

      Actually no but it does not surprise me that you said that.
      It's standard when you have no ideas to use insults.

    "So guess what...and guess what...and guess what"....LOL, That was a painful interview to watch. Nothing against Rodman, but I know he did a stint on Celebrity Rehab and is not exactly the gleaming example of the American Drean we would want to portray. However, the example was given that this smacked of the ping pong politics with China in the past and maybe its best that they would meet with having no political agenda and only basketball in common.

        He was there with the Harlem Globetrotters when he was invited to visit the boss smile

          Yes I had understood that too and couldn't figure out what he was doing with the Globetrooters. Brings them down a notch or two.

                I guess they go on talent. And he is famous...although not always for the right reason

                The Globetrotters are still talented players....they have played national teams and other serious games in the past and won.
