  •  I like his hat! (0+ / 0-)

    Poor Dennis. He was a lot of fun to watch play basketball when he played for Detroit and Chicago and I was a fan of both teams.

    But he is a seriously troubled man and anyone taking serious advice from him would do better to take directions from the Brad Pitt character Floyd in True Romance

    •  How many Americans have ever talked with (1+ / 0-)

      Kim Jong Un?
      How many of them have a personal relationship with him?
      The only one I've ever heard of is Dennis Rodman.
      That would give him a bit of an edge in actually knowing what the new Kim is thinking, no?
      The message he delivered is that North Korea "doesn't want to do war". That he would like to talk to Obama and Rodman's idea, which is brilliant, is that they should get together for some hoops.
      As flawed as he is, if his quirky personality led him to an unlikely relationship that could lead to a breakthrough for understanding in East Asia, it would be a good idea to get behind him, rather than brush it off like he is not worthy.

      If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      •  That might not be a bad idea. (0+ / 0-)

        Kim Jong Un is overweight and smokes like a chimney.  20 minutes on the court with Obama and he'll yield to Obama on anything.  (Seriously, NK propaganda showed him, cigarette in hand, while he was inspecting a gym and again when inspecting a hospital.)
