Secretary of State Hillary Clinton vs. North Korean Schoolgirls: You Decide
You go to talk about nuclear disarmament and end up being called a schoolgirl. Then, like, the whole world gossips about it. Don't you hate when that happens? I'm not certain how advisable it is to get into a (yet another) war of words with North Korea, but Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton did it this week. They called her a "schoolgirl" and "pensioner." She called them "unruly teenagers." North Korea's Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying:
"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."
FYI, when North Korea says "schoolgirl," this is what they mean:
Senator Clinton or North Korean schoolgirls...quite honestly, in a battle of wills, I'm not sure who would win. Though from the looks of it, North Korea needs to cool it not only with the nuclear testing, but with the dispensing of fashion advice.
