Dennis Rodman. An example of a Sad and Clueless Soul

Given to...Given to... WyomingPosts: 4,776
Just watched his interview on CNN.

Embarrassed that in my youth, I once thought proudly of what he overcame and achieved. I still give him his due for overcoming the obstacles, but his maturity in life ceased long ago.

Cut to the closing of his interview, when he thanks Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder, Phil Jackson, and others...  only confirms that a few magical moments in his life have defined his thought process.  He merely chuckled when the interviewer reminded him of the evil that Kim Jung Un has perpetrated on his own people.

    Some on here believe the very honorable Un is the future and the G6 is the old, corrupt, failing vestige of the past. Imagine that?

    Just the fact that he gets air time is unreal to me as if he’s some kind of former diplomat..

    There was a movie about a situation like this made back in the 80s.

    These people look normal until they start flapping their lips. Be on the lookout for a pair of sunglasses that will let you see these weirdos as they truly are.

    Rodman has been a tire fire for decades.  People like to watch him or listen to him, the same way they like to watch car crashes.
    Next.

    It's sad really.  Like you said, given to, he overcame so many obstacles but then...  ughh.  Some people should never gain fame.  Better to fly low than be scorched by the sun. 
    The reason I never give up hope is because everything is so basically hopeless.

    When he was on that show Celebrity Rehab, they did some brain scans on him and the doctors discovered that he has pretty profound permanent brain damage from all the drugs and drinking, and that the damage explained much of his behaviour (Rodman didn't seem too bothered by this news), so we really can't expect him to act like a sane person. What we should expect, though, is for national leaders to not treat this brain damaged addict like some kind of foreign affairs liaison.... But in this brave new world, apparently even that is too much to expect!
