Triple Dud on the North Korean ICBM and U.S. hostages

As expected, the North Korean ICBM launch turned out to be a triple-dud. Dud one is the launch, which fizzled in the second stage and splashed harmlessly into the Pacific Ocean.

Dud two is Obama's "Ban the bomb!" speech, where instead of responding to the North Korean threat, he instead blamed the United States for being a nuclear power ... blah, blah, blah.

And dud three is the milque toast response on the North Koreans holding two American citizens hostage by Susan Rice, Obama's mouthpiece at the useless diplomatic gaggle in New York.

The U.S. envoy to the United Nations said Sunday that the Obama administration hopes two American journalists detained in North Korea will be released swiftly and safely. Still, Ambassador Susan Rice acknowledged there are no guarantees.

Rice said the United States is continuing to work with Swedish diplomats who represent U.S. interests in North Korea to win freedom for Euna Lee and Laura Ling. The journalists work for former Vice President Al Gore's San Francisco-based Current TV media venture.

Rice said the two are safe, "to the best of our knowledge."

Obama's motto: "Making the world safe for socialism by talking endlessly about nothing."

Speaking of foolish talk, here's the Saturday Night Live translation of Obama's industry plans.
