First of all...this guy needs some lessons in speaking with emphasis and moderation.

Their stories are of repression, starvation, desperation, and hopelessness, not stories of entertainment for officially-approved tourists.

Kelzk, this is "hip style speaking" for that generation. Watch any ad aimed at kids today and you hear the same disinterested, disassociated monotone. To them, it means they're really really REALLY kewl.

I suspect that North Korea is probably more desirable than Sarah Palin's church.

As a wavering atheist, preserve me from being in Ms Palin's church, N Korea & hearing any accordian ever.
