Confused North Koreans Send Christmas Greetings to Congresswoman

No, this isn't from The Onion.
North Korea's official news agency blasted the incoming chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee -- while mistaking her for a chairman.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), a Cuban immigrant, has been a regular target of dictator Fidel Castro and his Latin American allies Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Bolivian President Evo Morales.

But the Korean Central News Agency, the mouthpiece of Pyongyang in a country with no free media, said Wednesday that Ros-Lehtinen's calls for North Korea to be relisted as a state sponsor of terrorism were "intolerable as it is malignant vituperation against the dignified DPRK and its system."

"Ros, man representing the U.S. conservative hard-liners, is human scum as he earned ill-fame as an anti-communist fanatic," the KCNA wrote. "He is a political illiterate ignorant of the background against which the nuclear issue cropped up on the Korean Peninsula and the processes to settle it.
These people are more clueless than your typical leftists.
"The U.S. conservative hardliners, however, are crying out for relisting the DPRK as a 'state sponsor of terrorism'. This is a despicable bid to check the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. The army and people of the DPRK will never pardon Ros and his group."
