Despite admitting that before making his new North Korean BFF he “didn’t know Kim Jong-un from Lil’ Kim,” Dennis Rodman tells Sports Illustrated that he should be considered for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work… doing whatever he does in Pyongyang:

Early on this warm, blustery afternoon outside the Jet Blue baggage claim at JFK, the Worm is holding forth — to his limo driver, to anyone who will listen, to the wind — on his foray into geopolitics. “Before I landed in Pyongyang, I didn’t know Kim Jong-un from Lil’ Kim,” he says. “I didn’t know what country he ruled or what went on in the country he ruled.”

“Fact is, he hasn’t bombed anywhere he’s threatened to yet. Not South Korea, not Hawaii, not … whatever. People say he’s the worst guy in the world. All I know is Kim told me he doesn’t want to go to war with America. His whole deal is to talk basketball with Obama. Unfortunately, Obama doesn’t want to have anything to do with him. I ask, Mr. President, what’s the harm in a simple phone call? This is a new age, man. Come on, Obama, reach out to Kim and be his friend.”

Rodman plans to return to North Korea in August. “I’m just gonna chill, play some basketball and maybe go on vacation with Kim and his family,” Rodman says. “I’ve called on the Supreme Leader to do me a solid by releasing Kenneth Bae.” The Korean-American missionary was recently sentenced to 15 years of hard labor on charges that he tried to topple the North Korean regime. He’d organized tours into the isolated state.

“My mission is to break the ice between hostile countries,” Rodman says. “Why it’s been left to me to smooth things over, I don’t know. Dennis Rodman, of all people. Keeping us safe is really not my job; it’s the black guy’s [Obama's] job. But I’ll tell you this: If I don’t finish in the top three for the next Nobel Peace Prize, something’s seriously wrong.”

Winners of the Nobel Peace Prize have included Yasser Arafat, Al Gore and President Obama.

Why not? Obama got one for doing a lot less than Rodman. Heck, it's not like a the Nobel Peace prize means anything anymore.

Rodman is better qualified than Obama in 2009.
I'll bet he'd get more votes if he denounced Bush.

Can he also replace Kerry as our Secretary of State? We need even more diversity and Rodman probably wouldn't be less competent.
