Kim Jong Il is but one example.
Marc Emery, though more foolish than evil, is another:
Marc Emery, Canada's so-called Prince of Pot, got married Sunday to a woman who apparently doesn't mind the idea that her new husband could spend large parts of their marriage in court or in jail as part of his mission to legalize marijuana.
“I will support him no matter what happens in any situation,” Jodie Emery, 21, said shortly after the wedding. “I'm just so happy right now to be married to him.”
She said she married Mr. Emery, who has been arrested 21 times, knowing full well he may spend many years in a U.S. jail.
And it was an affair for the society pages:
The wedding ceremony took place under a white tent in the city's Queen Elizabeth Park where about 100 guests sat in suits and dresses continually passing around joints.
After the ceremony the bride, wearing a long, white strapless wedding dress, lit up what she called a “wedding doobie.”
The Emerys then shared, in front of a crowd of media, their first joint as husband and wife, inhaling the smoke and then kissing each other.
Bet this marriage doesn't last longer than a couple years, if that. This sort of publicity stunt marriage never does.
