The panelists on "The McLaughlin Group" tackled the issues of North Korea, Rand Paul's filibuster, and budget talks. No Pat again, so we will have to do without the ethnic and gender studies course for another week.
What is wrong with Eleanor? Let us just solve this stupid dispute peacefully. And if our elected representatives are that thick that they would be fooled into watching sporting events with Kim Jong-Un, then I would reconsider the "smarter minds" comment. I am also loving how all these people that have not ever been to North Korea know so much about what the people of North Korea think. Kudos to John for pointing out what they would be surprised by.
And yet we are worried about the people of North Korea being in a trance and their leaders being irrational. I love how these two segments abutted each other. Can John replace Eleanor with a Ryan Grim please.
No previous predictions were verifiable this week.
