Our (Temp) Man, Bolton

How pathetic!

Revoltin' John Bolton's only hope of becoming our ambassador to the United Nations is through a temporary presidential recess appointment.

Democrats Block Attempt to Confirm Bolton

By LIZ SIDOTI, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Democrats blocked another attempt Monday by the Senate to confirm John Bolton to become U.N. ambassador, delivering a second-straight setback to President Bush even as he left the door open to temporarily installing Bolton on his own.

The Republican-run chamber fell six votes short of the 60 it needed to end Democratic delays that have prevented a roll call on confirming the tough-talking conservative. The vote was 54-38 in favor of ending the delays. LINK

The world hates John Bolton.

The reasons for that hatred are legion.

Leave it to a seriously unpopular president to damage our global standing even further by ramming the likes of John Bolton through the back door...

Even if it's only temporary.

Heavy sigh.
