    overheard on NPR this morning, with reference to North Korea:

    "masters of brinksmanship"


    the technique or practice of maneuvering a dangerous situation to the limits of tolerance or safety in order to secure the greatest advantage, esp. by creating diplomatic crises.

    Lunching him? Are they to take his meat?

    They want to poison his presidency like they did Clinton's. Only this time we know their game, and we can play it right back at them.

    It's time to drown Republicans in the bathtub.
