    Seriously, It’s hard to see a downside to Rodman’s “work” in North Korea.

    North Korea is the mystery meat (the Spam) of nations, what is it that Rodman could do over there that could harm America? North Koreans might start getting tattoo en-mass? North Korean men might demand that Carmen Electra visit Pyongyang?

    @al-Ameda: Or, to put it slightly differently — every minute Kim Jong-un spends thinking about basketball or how cool Rodman is, is a minute that he isn’t thinking about how to invade the South or nuke somebody.

    Best part of that news conference were all the guys behind him shifting uncomfortably in their seats. You’ve gotta wonder…..what were they thinking?

    It’s hitch your wagon to a star, guys. A star, not a clown.
