North Korea -- The Rockin' Vacation Destination!

Entertainment site Boing Boing has fun with a new tourism ad from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

It's everything you could hope for in a confrontation between 19th century pseudo-scientific philosophy and 21st century technology. It has a definite Python vibe to it, as almost everything that comes from our friends in the DPRK does.

When BB linked to the NK site, traffic volume caused a crash that elicited this delicious little rant. I absolutely love,

"This kind of careless linking to high-profile sites is typical of the internet where people no longer respect that such links could make free content less available."

What a perfect summary of what's wrong with leftism in general (American lefitsm most definitely included): the world responds to their stimulus in some manner that they didn't anticipate and can't control and they rail against it in shrill tones, like some blue-haired Women's Christian Temperance Union biddy* yelling at drinkers in a beer hall. Ward Churchill and Hollywood take note: for morally agrieved whinging, y'all have a lot to learn from your comrades in the DPRK.
