(Newser) – See America, Dennis Rodman's friendship with an oppressive, warmongering dictator isn't all bad after all: The NBA Hall of Famer and self-appointed diplomat has asked BFF Kim Jong Un to release imprisoned US citizen Kenneth Bae, CNN reports. "I'm calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea or as I call him 'Kim', to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose," Rodman tweeted yesterday. While he's at it, maybe Rodman—or, as we call him, 'the star of 1999 action-comedy classic Simon Sez'—could spare another 140 characters to ask his brah to chillax and not threaten his own country with nuclear missiles?
