The Truth Revealed

“Hey, world? Duh-bya here. ’Member how’s I said I was gonna be all friendly now? How all that ‘unilateralist’ mumbo-jumbo was just a bunch of horse puckey, an’ I’m really an okay guy?

“Well, fuck you.

“Heh, heh. What you gonna do ’bout it? I’m the president, an’ I’ve got the button.”

The UN could totally use a good dose of "Chinga Tu Madre" though. Maybe this is the guy to provide it.

Is the UN royally screwed up? Corrupt? Mired in bureaucracy? Sure -- though pointing it out is the ultimate example of the pot calling the kettle black.

But Bolton is a guy who (in addition to being a hardcore neocon wingnut) has made a name for himself precisely by opposing the UN -- in overall principle as well as on specific shortcomings. He has repeatedly made it emphatically clear that he believes the UN to be utterly valueless, that we have no responsibility to pay our dues to the organization, that "if the UN Secretariat building in New York lost 10 stories, it wouldn't make a bit of difference" -- and, perhaps most telling, that "there is no such thing as the United Nations."

This nomination is a joke, nothing more. Or at least it would be if the stakes weren't so high. This bozo has no more business being nominated as UN ambassador than a psychotic like Gonzales had being nominated for attorney general.
