Stockholm syndrome, stupid slaves.

    How dare do you mock the passing of our beloved, progressive, liberal icon and true lover of American ideals.

    Just before North Korean leader Kim Jong Il died, the skies glowed red above sacred Mount Paektu and the impenetrable sheet of ice at the heart of the mystical volcano cracked with a deafening roar.

    Kim Jong Il’s official biography says he was “heaven sent,” born in a log cabin in Mount Paektu while his father was fighting the Japanese.

    The first time he bowled, Kim Jong-il scored a perfect 300, according to North Korean media. Similarly, in his first-ever round of golf, he had five hole-in one holes for 38-under par round.

    The account of his death was just as mythic. His obituary in state media called him the “illustrious commander born of heaven,” and on Wednesday, KCNA said a Manchurian crane spotted in the city of Hamhung circled a statue of Kim Il Sung for hours before dropping its head and taking off toward Pyongyang. The crane is a traditional Korean symbol of longevity.

      Just thank heavens that he cant read his own obituary.

      He would die of embarrassment… (Nah! He was a psychopath just like his father. Lets hope the third nut-bar fell a bit further from the tree. [Reality has a lot to teach us all. Don’t remain ignorant.])

      No its not.

      Just outside Pyongyang it the symbol for lunch if you’ve got a slingshot and good aim…

    When I was born the angels got together and decided to create a dream come true.

    So they sprinkled moon dust in my hair of golden starlight in my eyes of blue.

    I am a leader without a country, a legend without a name.

    That sap David Letterman went on and on about this for a full week, along with a clip of a monkey riding a dog, a monkey sneezing, and a Fed Ex guy tossing a package over a fence. All have about the same relevancy for me.

    These people live in a gulag. If you don’t cry, you don’t eat.

  6. AdmFubar says:

    they dont eat period, north korea is so outta whack it is just sad.

    “Stockholm syndrome, stupid slaves.”

    The word “stupid” refers to those who are of limited intellectual processing capacity.

    If McCullough had never known anything other than what he had been told, and he mourned the passing of a person he had been constantly inculcated as his savior, would his grief, however misplaced in a larger scheme of things, be not heartfelt?

    But McCollough is sophisticated. Presumably intelligent enough to have seen through the Organizing Myths of religion, politics, pseudo science and bullshit.

    Yet he still bullshits. Repeating popular prejudicial characterizations about a people, culture and mind set that he has near-zero appreciation of.


    And Merry Christmas.

    North Korea is way up there in the rankings for Weirdest Country in the World.

  9. Glenn E. says:

    These North Koreans are just largely faking, what comes nature to Congressman “blubbery” Boehner, whenever he speaks about graft, that near and dear to his heart. The difference is that the Koreans are probably scared not to cry for their deceased dictator. And Boehner is scared his cushy lifestyle might be slightly diminished, if he doesn’t cry for his political choices and career. But he won’t get shot in the head for NOT crying.

  10. TripleHash says:

    Do you know why they are crying? From:

    “When death arrived, it was customary for the family members who had been present during the last moments of the departed one to wail (kok). The purpose of kok involved a combination of factors. While it obviously provided a means of expressing the sorrow and sadness of the mourners at losing a close relative, it also involved the expression of guilt by the mourners who might believe that it was because of their lack of pious actions toward the departed which had caused his or her ultimate demise.”

    Perhaps this wailing is as normal as wearing black to a funeral?
