Dennis Rodman’s no elder statesman like former president Jimmy Carter or our ace in the hole/clutch diplomat Bill Richardson, but you wouldn’t think so with yet another story about his visit to North Korea and an appearance on ABC’s This Week.
It’s the story that won’t go away and for Rodman, he hasn’t enjoyed this much press and attention since Michael, Scottie, and others went for their three-peat in 1998.
North Korea’s young leader has riled the U.S. with recent nuclear tests, but Kim Jong Un doesn’t really want war with the superpower, just a call from President Barack Obama to chat about their shared love of basketball, according to ersatz diplomat Dennis Rodman, the ex-NBA star just back from an improbable visit to the reclusive communist country.
Here’s the rest of the story.
Enjoy it while you can, Dennis. The next time North Korea threatens South Korea or the US (and they will, you can count on it) you will be old news. Try getting a spot on Letterman or Leno then to talk about your trip to North Korea.
