Questionable authenticity!BILL CLINTON SAVES LADIES FROM NORTH KOREA: Uhh, hooray! In a “private mission” rife with secret diplomatic motives and back-door conversations with the U.S. government, Bill Clinton hopped on a jetplane to North Korea, talked up Kim Jong Il for a while, probably offered him exclusive bidding rights to various natural resource contracts in autocratic third-world countries, and won the release of those two American journalists who had been sentenced to HARD LABOR back in March. Okay, Bill Clinton! [CNN]

You know he volunteered for this gig.

Donk In A Box August 4, 2009 at 3:39 pm

Why they didn’t do this months ago I have no idea. Everyone knows that if you send Bill Clinton to pick up two chicks, he is NOT. COMING. BACK. without his two chicks.

x111e7thst August 4, 2009 at 3:40 pm

I read earlier today that that assclown Bolton was all enraged about the Bill Clinton trip to North Korea. I figured then that the thing would probably work out ok.

smartypants August 4, 2009 at 3:41 pm

What? That’s all it took? Send Bill to Clusterfuckistan next!!

Don Juanquete August 4, 2009 at 3:41 pm

Bill frees the 2 in NK.
Hillz is now in Iran to free the 3 ‘mericans there.

Big thrills with Bill, Hill and Jong-Il!

And Clintons will be TIME couple of the year.

Scruffy is not going to like it when he has to clean up two blue dresses.

He looks pretty jet-lagged in that pic. How do we know he didn’t sleepily mumble “yeah, whatever” when Kim demanded Seattle in exchange for the reporters?

spryte August 4, 2009 at 3:43 pm

So, Bill Clinton rules the world, basically. Awesome.

I’d hit it!

An even trade.

Two Asian American reporters for Bill. Two bottle blond strippers for Kim.

Everyone’s happy.

Larry Fine August 4, 2009 at 3:44 pm

Thanks to President Clinton, North Korea is not in the axis of evil anymore. Pretty soon Americans will be going on vacation there for the fine dining and friendly people.

Gopherit August 4, 2009 at 3:45 pm

Freeing two in NK once…..is that better than freeing one several times in the oval office?

Noonan August 4, 2009 at 3:45 pm

Sean Hannity just told us all to take this news in the proper context. Clinton’s getting these ladies released is ‘tantamount to negotiating with terrorists. Of course, we’re happy for their families, but let’s take a look at what it really mean.’

I’m glad I switch that doof on at 3 every day.

It’s just about to the point that I don’t even bother to look at anything AP shits out on the net.

Todd Mecklem August 4, 2009 at 3:46 pm

Jeeze, look at that sad-sack face on the ex-Prez. Are they modeling for those kitschy comedy/drama theater masks that old people hang on their walls? He’s thinking: Dang it, Hillary gets to sip champagne with Sarkozy in Paris ever other weekend, but when someone has to go to Pyongyang, she’s all “Bill, can you do me a little favor?”

Manos: Hands of Fate August 4, 2009 at 3:47 pm

I wonder how many North Korean commandos Clinton had to take out to get those ladies free.

Monsieur Grumpe August 4, 2009 at 3:47 pm

Do you think he’ll puke on Kim’s shoes. I hear it’s a sign of respect in North Korea.

GreatOldOnesParty August 4, 2009 at 3:49 pm

[re=378087]Noonan[/re]: You know that deep down inside, Hannity’s soul is beginning to go critical and implode. That dead look in his eyes? Remember, the eyes are the windows to the soul.

Doglessliberal August 4, 2009 at 3:49 pm

[re=378079]spryte[/re]: I think what happened here is actually brilliant Hopey. He knew N Korea’s wackjob wanted acknowledgement, face, respect, but we could not send an official person, so….Billy boy! Wacko Il gets his former Pres, lots of nice pics, and he can concede.

This is all because of the fashion world, which has brought matching pantsuits and jumpsuits back in style for Fall 2010. Makes Hillz and Jong-il both the forward-looking trendsetters.

Wait just one doggone minute! Bill Clinton was operating under the orders of the usurper Barack HUSSEIN Obama, who is ilagitamant to be President of These United States, making this entire operation illugitumut. Therefore WETHEPEOPLE damand that these journaliss be put back in North Korea prison!

Doglessliberal August 4, 2009 at 4:01 pm

[re=378117]Larry Fine[/re]: true, Illin’ conceded, but he was helped by the fact that this was not someone official–he would have lost a lot of face conceding in that case. But here, his butt was kissed adequately, since Clinton is a Big Swinging Dick, at least in Il’s mind.

That makes sense.

[re=378144]Noonan[/re]: That’s so dishonest of President Obama. Why when Dubya was president, he’d distract us from the awful things that were going on by getting into something much worse. Three thousand Americans died in the worst terrorist attack here in history? Hey, make up a nuke threat from Iraq! And when his poll numbers started dropping he’d just get Tom Ridge to bump up the terror alert level. Then when that didn’t work anymore, we had Katrina, and then finally the whole finance meltdown made everyone forget about Iraq entirely. And they say the man didn’t know how to do anything.

Yep, Bolton and Hannity and the “we’re rewarding North Korea’s bad bahavior” talking point. So what? North Korea is going to act bad no matter what we do. We bomb them, they destory Seoul, kiss their ass and they still get all up in your grill demending “respect.”

Too bad the Dear Leader isn’t being replaced by his daughter — Bill could have hit it and we would have had peace in our time. “Sure, sugar, I’ll leave the old witch, I promise I’ll call you when I get back to the States, just sign this peace treaty to show me how much you love me baby.”

Scorecard:

For Pol Crises thru the first seven months of a Presidency:

0bama:

1) Successful release of two foreign journalists from DPRK thru diplomacy
2) Successful rescue of an American hostage from Somolia Pirates thru two well placed shots

Bush:

1) Kissed China’s ass to secure the release of US Sailors after a Navy and Chinese Aircraft played air tag
2) Told a CIA Briefer he’d “covered his ass” after a briefing on Al Qeada

[re=378096]Doglessliberal[/re]: Brilliant Hopey indeed. Bolton et al have sour grapes cause they think they could have squashed NK. Silly geese.

Actually this must really get the Bush II crew’s goat. And I don’t mean their pet goat.

Did Hillary send that dude who ran Barry’s transtion with Bill – to spy on him or keep him in check. One of the pictures Olbermann showed looked like him.

Is this going to be another faux outrage for the wingnuts. Shouldn’t AG-Sarah Palin sending another incoherent tweet about this?

The pimp hand is strong with this one.

Way to go, Bubba!

Likely showed Ill what correct SUNGLASSES to wear to get the fat chicks.

For that, bubba’s my hero.

Say what you like, but Bill deserves a blow job for this one. (And, uh, I’m not volunteering.)

[re=378402]Dreamer[/re]: That’s John Podesta. He was Bill’s WH Chief of Staff. More like his old boss called him and said, hey wanna go to North Korea with me? There’s an offer you can’t refuse.

[re=378430]Cherry Garcia[/re]: I am so uninformed about Clinton admin but my papa liked him very much as a president till he misbehaved with that chubby chick. In my deffense I was 10 at the time.

[re=378361]One Yield Regular[/re]: “Negotiating merely for the sake of it, in the face of palpable recent failures, is something else indeed.”

Yes Mr. Bolton, and which administration THAT YOU FUCKING WORKED FOR might be responsible for recent failures of diplomacy towards North Korea?

Shorter Bolton: How dare Obama fix our fuck-ups!

DoctorCulturae August 4, 2009 at 10:25 pm

Was Preznit Bill coerced into going? Was he low key by design? Or was saying, “Hey, I could do this with one hand tied behind my back.” [insert obligatory Clinton sex joke here]

Suck it haters!

Yay for the Big Dog out-smarting that bobble-headed imbecile!

Flash forward a few days:
“Better two Defeatocrat, Al Gore femtard, lezzie journalists do time in North Korea than we give up our freedoms unto the venomous octopus of socialized medicine birthed by a racist president. — Princess Glennda of Beck”
It’s the bees.

Uhh, Hils? Well I gotta go to Poontang and rescue a coupla babes. Trust me, honey, it’ll help your career.

Nothing blown up? No infrastructure to replace? GE and Halliburton are going to be so pissed. Maybe GE will make Rachel host Bolton; Clinton better be careful if he has any electrical contracting done.
