Here, JournoList sends out its talking points so that certain Althouse commenters will have something to say. And the MSM can start its day.

Because they've just been sanctioned, 15-0 at the United Nations and they play that as a joke, because everyone knows no one will abide by those sanctions, especially China.

The purpose of the sanctions is so that those who "smuggle" stuff into NK can get more money for it, I mean, after all, it's tougher to get goods in and out when they've been sanctioned.

What a joke.

If only Mr Obama had written a ballad or two! although I suppose there is still time and perhaps one oughtn't to put suggestions into his head, or Mrs Clinton's-- you know we'd be listening to versions thereof at every turn. Which is a very, very creepy thing to consider. (But I enjoy the theremin, in small doses.)

Wow! That brings back memories. The last time I heard that I was being probed for the third time by a creepily tall and thin alien woman with enormous breasts who had a firm, but compassionate touch. The room had similar lighting to Pyongyang, and smelled of ass and rendered fat. She seemed to have a guarded passion for literature, and as I was bidding her farewell, she offered me her copy of "To Serve Man". We both held the book in transmission for a long second until I slowly slid it from her three fingered claw. Being a reluctant reader myself, I only accepted it to have something to cover my flibbertigibbet of a man part. Now, I wonder where I left that. No, the book, smart ass.

Don't you wish you could do an accurate, honest, anonymous poll of the North Koreans? I'd like to ask them a whole bunch of questions. Like: do you really think that fat little child-man with the stupid haircut is all that? It would be a fascinating battery of data on the extent that a population can be played by a government. Hell, I guess we can just collect that data here on our own people. How's that Obamacare working for ya? What did you all do with the $2500 you saved on premiums every year. I bought a unicorn... that I ride across the bridge to the 21st century.

It's sad that in the 21st century, people still pan video cameras back and forth like a monkey.

This fool travels to a communist dictatorship, where he can be arrested at any moment, and this exciting daring escapade is documented by swinging a lens back and forth like he was emptying his bladder on the shrubs.

The music is very affecting. Haunting in a way. Like a manifestation of Dear Leader's ghost.
