It looks like Obie got played.
This was so blatant that even crazy wingnut Matt Lauer noticed it on the Today show http://todayentertainment.today.com/_ne ... idiot?lite
(The relevant part starts about 35 seconds in)
Timeline seems to be as follows:
1) Dennis Rodman and several Harlem Globtrotters (team owned by estate of Roy Disney) visit North Korea funded by Vice Magazine.
2) The movie "Olympus Has Fallen" starts playing in a theater near you.The plot of the movie revolves around NoKo terrorists.
3) The NoKos amp up the crazy, threatening nuclear war.Why now? Did Rodman carry a bag of cash to get them to do it?
4) Obie.... Well, what exactly does Obie do? He seems to react a bit but doesn't let it interfere with his golf or vacation plans. Not exactly what one would expect of a president on the eve of a threatened nuclear attack.
5) Meanwhile Olympus does very well at the box office.
So is this whole megillah really just a very clever, clever promotion?
Is Obie in on it?
Or did he get played again? (My suspicion)
If the NK bellicosity goes away in a week or two without explanation, we will know.
