From North Korea, With Something Approaching The Opposite Of Adulation

Hillary Clinton was slammed this week by a North Korean foreign ministry spokesman, who called her unintelligent and "unaware of the elementary etiquette in the international community." He said she should brush up on her "understanding of the world." Piling on, he also said that "sometimes she looks like a primary schoolgirl and sometimes a pensioner going shopping."
