Our Man At The U.N.
Raging wars in the Middle East, sweltering heat waves drifting across the United States, the President without a clue or a vacation home, and sitting line a cool cucumber in the nations’ capital is United States Ambassador to the United Nations John Robert Bolton.
With the year anniversary coming up on Bolton’s Recess Appointment by President Bush, after being filibustered by the Senate Democrats, the sands are running through the hourglass for Bolton to keep his job and win confirmation (which seems likely with the Bush Rubber Stamp Congress, and with special thanks to Sen. George V. Voinovich (R-Ohio) for pulling a “my sister-my daughter” in coming out supporting Bolton this year)
So the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs began grilling Bolton today and we thought we take a stroll down Garlic Lane to see what the feisty diplomat has been up to.
Remarkably, the top ten floors of the United Nations building are still intact, but then again, perhaps Bolton is waiting for the job security of being official confirmed before he sets about to lop them off.
