Kim Jong Il Pardons Reporters; Cinton asks for a wet-wipe for his hand

I am sure I'm not the only one who called it this morning (here) and said that now that Clinton was giving him a handjob made of attention that he would turn the reporters free.

What I did not count on is the fact that Clinton apparently decided to give him the full on happy ending;

"Clinton expressed words of sincere apology to Kim Jong Il for the hostile acts committed by the two American journalists against the DPRK after illegally intruding into it," the news agency reported. "Clinton courteously conveyed to Kim Jong Il an earnest request of the U.S. government to leniently pardon them and send them back home from a humanitarian point of view.

All hyperbole aside I am pretty frigging amazed that a former president of the United States actually just humbly on bended knee(s) apologized to a batshit crazy dictator for two reporters being near his border. I don't think I could be any more shocked if I found out that Clinton gave him a lap-dance while feeding him fancy olives. I could understand if their employer apologized for sending them there, but this is a former head of state.
Prior to the release, Chinoy said, "I suspect that it was made pretty clear in advance that Bill Clinton would be able to return with these two women, otherwise it would be a terrible loss of face for him."
Yeah .... glad he did not lose face or anything....
