North Korea defies World; Hastert speaks

Embattled House Speaker Dennis Hastert on the North Korea nuclear test:
"We stand with President Bush and the international community in condemning North Korean Leader Kim Jong-il's reckless decision, and we will provide whatever assistance we can to bring this matter to a stable resolution."
Then, as an unconfirmed report states, Dennis Hastert sent Kim Jong-il (pictured above) a dozen red roses, a Carvel "Fudgie-the-Whale" ice cream cake, and a "thank-you" note.

Go read Wayne Madsen today, but make sure not to have anything spillable near your keyboard first...

"Fudgie-the-whale" - It just seems like the kind of gift that Denny Hastert would think appropriate to give to a foreign leader.
