Pot calls Kettle Black

On the theory that "Irony is where you find it", here's a good one from the WaPo:
North Korea Labels Bush a 'Dictator'

North Korea lashed out at President Bush yesterday for comments he made about the country's leader, Kim Jong Il, at a news conference Thursday, asserting that the North Korean nuclear impasse will never be resolved while Bush remains in office.

Bush is "a half-baked man in terms of morality and a philistine whom we can never deal with," (couldn'ta said it better myself-G) a Foreign Ministry spokesman said, according to the official Korean Central News Agency. The statement described Bush as the "world's dictator," who as president had "turned the world into a sea of blood."

"We can no longer tolerate and wait for a shift in the [U.S.] policy," the North Korean statement concluded. "Quite just is the path chosen by us, and we will proceed straight and square along that path."

Sounds like the "Twin Kims", Jong Il and Bush, are reading out of the same playbook, huh?
Kim is considered almost a deity in his country, and the North Korean statement said it could not ignore such "slandering and cursing remarks." The statement noted that "no one can expect to hear reasonable words from Bush, once a cowboy at a ranch in Texas. His remarks often stun audiences as they reveal his utter ignorance."

The last sentence makes up for the previous one, in my opinion. Bush has never had to work as hard as the cowboys I've known, and, as my dad used to say "wouldn't know a steer from a heifer twenty feet away." He'da been out on his ass and ridin' the grub line. He's like the Cartwright boys on Bonanza: Daddy owned the joint and the help did all the work so the kids had the time and money to get in all the trouble they wanted knowin' Pa would bail 'em out. Ah, them furriners think we're all cowboys anyway.

As far as pissin' contests go, my dictator's got bigger bombs than your dictator! Neener-fuckin'-neener!
