The hermit kingdom is having nothing of your imperialist time constructs, world. North Korea is king of melding the heartbreaking and the bizarre, and today, they surpassed themselves on the “bizarre” end.

In the first of the two Republican debates yesterday, the lower polling candidates squared off in a so-called “Happy Hour” debate. All of the candidates did well but Carly Fiorina truly stood out and her performance might be just the jolt her campaign needed. The consensus among many in media was that…
