They Wouldn’t Do That Would They?

As I watched the John Bolton hearing today, two things occurred to me. First of all, why does this guy look so much like Fred Goldman? But more importantly, "Why would Georgieboy nominate someone so ill-suited for the position of UN Ambasador?

I'm sure we're all familiar with Bolton's past statements concerning the UN: "There is no such thing as the United Nations" and "If the U.N. secretary building in New York lost 10 stories, it wouldn't make a bit of difference." You know, friendly diplomatic stuff.

So here I am thinking to myself; "How is that Bush picked the one person who is possibly the most ill-suited for the job?" Then it hit me. He did this on purpose.

By picking John Bolton, Bush knows that the Democrats will go ballistic. The Democratic members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will grill him during the hearings and will most likely all vote against him. However, Georgie's got the advantage. He holds enough votes to get him through committee and even confirmed. So he's kind of killing two birds with one stone, if you like. Not only does he get a hard-liner at the UN, but he can also exploit the Democrats' opposition as more left-wing obstructionism.

Georgieboy doesn't give a shit about the UN. By sending Bolton he's basically giving the whole UN a great big middle-finger "fuck you." Plus, he and his flunkies can roll out the video of Sen. Boxer and Sen. Kerry and Sen. Obama grilling poor John and say, "See how angry they are? See how partisan they are? They're being obstructionists."

But, they wouldn't do that..........would they?
