"And maybe it's the mother in me or the experience that I've had with small children and unruly teenagers and people who are demanding attention -- don't give it to them, they don't deserve it, they are acting out."Now, today, the New York Times put out an interesting article saying that North Korea has returned with..... the.exact.same.insult.
A North Korean official apparently referred to Secretary Clinton as an impolite "schoolgirl".
"We cannot but regard Mrs. Clinton as a funny lady as she likes to utter such rhetoric, unaware of the elementary etiquette in the international community. Sometimes she looks like a primary schoolgirl and sometimes a pensioner going shopping."Oh they also added that Clinton is "by no means intelligent." Yea... my response was almost exactly the same as Maddow's in a clip from tonight below. Oh how I love the snark... (fast forward to 6:15)
Also, it was reported that Hillary may have miffed some other North Korean officials that were attending the ASEAN conference in Thailand. The story goes that the officials showed up at a news conference set up for Clinton, who was running late and although the North Koreans had a booked space, they left the conference area to meet with reporters and talk bad about Secretary Clinton and the United States.
Curious as to your thoughts. Is this a case of a silly "I know you are but what am I?" argument or is very scary to be getting involved in a war of words with North Korea?
