(Newser) – America's diplomat in chief to North Korea is out of commission for a while: Dennis Rodman, most recently known for cozying up to murderous baby-faced dictators and drunkenly melting down on CNN, has checked into rehab for alcoholism. He'll spend 30 days at a facility in New Jersey. The former basketball star is "beyond exhausted and overwhelmed," sources tell TMZ. It's not the first stint in rehab for Rodman, who appeared on Celebrity Rehab in 2009 and also spent time at a facility in Florida in 2008.

Rodman is a disgrace to America and all black people.
