I am acutely aware that this is not an original thought, but I cannot prevent myself from weighing in.
Is Dennis Rodman ready to defect to North Korea?
He made a second trip there supposedly to seek the release of an American being held captive. He went there a few months ago and declared for all the world — or at least that part of the world where people actually care what he thinks — that North Korean dictator/weirdo Kim Jong Un had become his “friend.”
Well, with Rodman, one never knows what the term “friend” actually means. The pro basketball Hall of Famer flipped many years ago — about the time his coach at Detroit, Chuck Daly, retired from the game. Rodman couldn’t continue acting like a semi-normal human being without his mentor and friend to hold his hand.
So he died his hair many colors, got all tatted up with body ink and now has pierced just about every visible appendage on his body — and maybe even some he keeps hidden in front of decent company.
Rodman’s friendship with Kim Jong Un is a match made somewhere, but certainly not in heaven.
The dictator presides over a nation that still starves its people while building one of the strongest military machines in Asia. But he’s Rodman’s pal.
I’m waiting — and hoping — for a defection. These two weirdoes deserve each other.
