We have officially entered the twilight zone

What’s Dennis Rodman doing in North Korea?

    Same thing he was doing before, whatever that is.
    Mattis is not optimistic.

    .. and the Democrats are taking up all the President’s (and administration’s) attention with their Russo-phobia.
    Same as when any Republican President is dealing with dangerous foreign policy issues (which is all the time).

    The GOP did the same to Clinton, of course, which was also inexcusable. He was a sleaze and a liar, but impeachment hearings take up so much oxygen that nothing is left for breathing.

  2. n.n Says:

    We’ve progressed on the twilight fringe (a.k.a. “penumbra”) for approximately half a century. I’m not sure if it’s possible to distinguish between the fringe and zone.

  3. JJ Cintia Says:

    The same thing he does every day. Try to get in front of cameras with people who don’t make him look bad in comparison. Just ask Carmen Electra.

    Re: n.n’s “twilight fringe”:

    Near very massive black holes, one may not realize that one has crossed the event horizon and become doomed for quite some time afterward.

    Is the Democrat Party a massive black hole? You decide. They blow off a Democrat President’s lying under oath–ignoring the principle of falsus in unum, falsus in omni–then pretend that against a Republican President the lack of evidence doesn’t matter, what matters are the seriousness of the charges. Be honest, AesopFan, you know that’s what’s going on.

  5. John Guilfoyle Says:

    Same thing he always does…speaking in an unintelligible rough approximation of English to people who don’t really give a damn what he says.

  6. Al Says:

    A while ago he was on my Jet Blue flight back to Long Beach, CA, sitting with the rest of us simple folk. The only thing to note was he made a call from a pay phone after he got off the plane. That broke or spycraft?

  7. Herrman Says:

    Sometimes a man is given a role he never expected, nobody would have selected him for, and for which there is no possible way for him to win. Those magnificent bastards then get to do what the rest of us can only write about: play the game.

    For all Mr. Rodman’s faults, and they are legion (Madonna?!), he’s playing the game. I wish him luck.

  8. jms Says:

    He’s our ambassador of cray-cray.

  9. Richf Says:

    Dennis Rodman in NK is stranger than Dennis Rodman anywhere else ?

  10. Stubbs Says:

    You wish he would take up a less dangerous pastime, like playing with rattlesnakes.

    He’s been there before, of course.

    I’d like to take this opportunity to ask if I am the only sympathy-barren person in this country to feel angry with people, like Rodman and the mind-destroyed kid, who go to this country at great danger to themselves and, undoubtedly, expense to the rest of us? (Behind the scenes diplomacy is not free, even if you ignore the behind the scenes trading.) What ARE they thinking?

  11. huxley Says:

    Stubbs: Actually thousands of Americans have visited NK without a problem. Which isn’t to say one ought not think twice — I sure wouldn’t do it — but it’s not quite the same as kissing a cobra.

    There is a not insignificant chance you or I will be gruesomely injured the next time we get into our car, turn the key, goose the gas and head out onto the road. That will be expensive too.

    I’ve followed this story from the beginning. From what I’ve read, Otto Warmbier — his name, thank you — was a bright responsible kid who thought, why not visit NK as part of his trip to the East.

    I believe the charge was trumped up. Otto confessed in the show trial and hoped for the best. Somehow it got much worse after that. We will probably never learn what happened.

    Otto was the salutatorian of his class and, FWIW, the homecoming and prom king. He wasn’t a kid to write off as a stupid fool.

    Be assured you are not alone in your lack of sympathy. I’ve seen it all over the net from the left and the right. I kinda understand, but that’s not where I am.

    I blame North Korea.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
