Those knee-slappers from North Korea are at it again

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have great teams of comedy writers. In fact, I never realized how many writers it takes to do those shows until I saw them all trot out on stage a while back at some awards ceremony. It looked like a fraternity reunion up there.

But really, they’re all a bunch of hacks compared to the comedy writers for North Korea.  Those guys have established a character for North Korea as a Stalinist, 1950s-era totalitarian state out of touch with the times and the world, and they have it DOWN.

This week, they’re taking on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, critiquing her for “vulgar remarks” that prove “she is by no means intelligent.”

“We cannot but regard Mrs. Clinton as a funny lady as she likes to utter such rhetoric, unaware of the elementary etiquette in the international community. Sometimes she looks like a primary schoolgirl and sometimes a pensioner going shopping,” a Foreign Ministry official said, putting Samantha Bee and John Oliver to shame.

I smell an Emmy. Or at the very least a People’s Choice Award for the Democratic People’s Republic of North Korea.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the government of North Korea have engaged in a war of words this week that teeters on the edge of farce. On Monday, via Reuters, Clinton equated the DPRK regime to attention-starved children, saying, “And maybe it’s the mother in me or the experience that I’ve had with small children and unruly teenagers and people who are demanding attention — don’t give it to them, they don’t deserve it, they are acting out.”

In fact, she frequently confuses them (DPRK) for members of the GOP. They are so much alike after all.

Well, I knowed back then Gen. MacArthur was right. We should of bombed N. Korea back to the Stone Age. About where they are now. But no, Truman wouldn’t listen. He fired the poor guy. And after all he done for us in WWII. It just goes to show librul Democrats got no gratitude.

I think we still might could do some things for N. Korea. Like give them some clothes from Goodwill. They all run around in pajamas. Except the people in the Army. And they need some of our barbers. This Kim guy’s haircut is just awful. Looks like his head got caught in a gristmill.

Anyhow, we ain’t getting nowhere with N. Korea. They just keep setting off rockets and a A-bomb now and then. And sticking their tongue out at us every chance they get. It wouldn’t take more than 3 or 4 of our big ones to turn the whole country into cinders and glass. But no, in a few months we’ll see this Obama down on his hands and knees trying to kiss this Kim’s shoes and claiming it’s the custom.

The image of the United States has improved markedly in most parts of the world, reflecting global confidence in Barack Obama. In many countries opinions of the United States are now about as positive as they were at the beginning of the decade before George W. Bush took office. Improvements in the U.S. image have been most pronounced in Western Europe, where favorable ratings for both the nation and the American people have soared. But opinions of America have also become more positive in key countries in Latin America, Africa and Asia, as well.

UsinUK,

That is true that for many polls. However one could easily argue that it is a hollow poll and indicator. Especially since many of the world leaders have turned a deaf ear toward our request and pleas for help. There have been some things done such as that with Burma. It would be easy to say also though that many world leaders feel that they hold the bargaining chips now, since they are not and have not treated us as a world power for quite some time now. In my opinion it is not respect we are gaining.

I would compare it to the way school children behave. Everyone always has good things to say about the kid with rich parents who can be manipulated, or talked into doing anything. While the freeloaders give nothing in return. We have turned into nothing more than the uncool kid looking for approval and only being used instead.

GtG –

if I proved to an officer that I lived in the house he was accusing me of breaking into and he was telling me to go outside to “talk about it” (meaning: let’s humiliate this person in front of his/her neighbors), yeah, I’d have a thing or two to say to the officer, myself.

once the policeman verified that Gates lived there, he should have apologized and LEFT. the arrest was a stupid thing to do – Obama was dead-on right, the officer acted stupidly.
