Despots of a Feather

November 9th, 2011 · No Comments

Strange YouTube journey this morning as I sought some quickie material for a reporting day. Inspired by Dr. Swerve-On’s latest installment of Fresh Produce, I started off looking for George Benson’s version of “California Dreaming.” Yet I somehow ended up fixated on the video above, in which Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu pays a visit to Pyongyang in the mid-1970s. Note the eerily robotic way in which the North Korean throngs wave their flags to greet Ceausescu’s motorcade.
