You know, this can be seen as a good thing. Bolton will no doubt be
confirmed. I think all the effort that went into opposing Bolton was
misspent hot air.
The bottom line is, the policies won't change no matter who Bush appoints.
What would we rather have at the UN, a slick, smooth talking diplomat who
will advocate Bush's policies with some semblance of skill and coherency? Or
would we rather see Bolton, an obnoxious and well-known thug who will act
like a bull in a China shop and alienate many?
The policies won't change. Given that, I think I prefer the latter. It
will more quickly add to the revulsion that much of the rest of the world
feels towards the Bush regime.
As an aside, it is surprisingly nice to see Voinovich voting against
Bolton. Dissention -- or a simple acknowledgement of reality -- among
Republican ranks is to be cheered.
Ever wonder why half of NYC residents, the majority of Canadians and
millions of people around the world think the US gov't was complicit
in the attacks of Sep. 11th? Get a free DVD video examining 9/11 at
