Big Guy and I just got out of a national security briefing, where we heard about North Korea's plan to launch a missile that could reach Hawaii later this summer.
This, of course, upset Big Guy. Because Hawaii is kind of his home state, when California, Illinois, New York, Mississippi, Vermont, Washington, Oregon or Malaysia aren't, but also because it screws up his vacation and date night plans in the Bahamas.
But Rahm told him there might be a silver-lining. If we do nothing to block the missile, out of fear, some tourists might cancel on reservations for some really primo ocean-view rooms that Big Guy can snatch up on Hotwire.
It's a win-win for citizens of the world. Big Guy gets a really nice rest back home. And Dear Leader gets a missile launch to help him with his self-esteem issues.
