According to a Yonhap news report, Kim Jong-il is apparently seeking a visit by Bush or another high-level official to visit his beloved DPRK. Bush Sr. and Condi would also make the VIP list.
What a situation it could turn out to be - Kim and Bush shaking hands. The comedy channels would have enough material for years - you would almost think Jon Stewart and Jay Leno would buy one of Bush's oil wells for such an event.
And what about translators? Would they 'really' translate when Bush and Kim meet?
Bush: I'm very happy to be here today! (Kim's translator): I envy your strength, Dear Leader.
Kim: Welcome to heaven on earth. (Bush's translator): Isn't it almost as nice as Texas?
Bush: Do you remember my comment about me loathing you? (Kim's translator): Let's be friends.
Kim: Your Vice-President Cheney called me a 'bloodthirsty beast'. But I still think you're a half-baked man (Bush's translator): Mr. Kim loves Dick Cheney's blood sausages, and even more, your baked bread.
Let's hope Messrs. Stewart and Leno do it a bit better, if Bush and Kim do end up meeting...
