Oh, you meant THAT inspector general.
John Bolton: Lying motherfucker. (Pilfered shamelessly from TBogg.)
WICKED AFTERTHOUGHT: You know, it occurs to me, after the weeks of digging around in Bolton's past to demonstrate what sort of drooling, mouth-breathing, amoral, dishonest bully he is, the best strategy on the part of the Democrats might be to just rip him to pieces every which way, then vote to confirm him.
No, wait, come back, hear me out.
Think about it. First, it's not as if whether it's Bolton or not is going to make any difference in the end when it comes to voting at the U.N., is it? Any Bush appointee is going to be taking orders from Commander Chimpy anyway so the votes are going to be exactly the same, regardless of who's pushing the button, or pulling the lever or whatever the hell they do over there.
But Bolton, being the total jackass he is, is guaranteed to piss off pretty much everyone he meets, to the point where people just won't want anything to do with him. I'm sure he won't get invited to parties and when the time comes when the U.S. actually needs some international co-operation and support, all those other countries are suddenly going to have scheduling conflicts or something.
No, I think the Dems should finish the official hearings, rip Bolton a new orifice or two, then vote to confirm. After which they should summarize the kind of worthless thug Bolton is in writing, and arrange for that document to magically find its way into the hands of every other country's representative at the U.N., just so those folks can steel themselves for the piece of human excrement that's about to show up on their doorstep.
BONUS TRACK: Fun with Google.
