JOHN R. BOLTON FOR UN AMBASSADOR: Do you have to struggle to keep a straight face when refugees are discussed? Are you complacent about Franco and hate hippies? Do you think that it's the inevitable course of world history that the rich and powerful invade the poor and weak? Do you think that putting a man on the moon is a more important development in world history than putting a bone in a tribal nose? Then you probably support John Bolton.
Hawkeye Republican is dedicated to the Cult of John R. Bolton, President Bush's nominee to be the US Ambassador to the United Nations.
Reasons why John R. Bolton's confirmation is a good thing and his oft-cited quotes:
"The Secretariat building in New York has 38 stories. If it lost ten stories, it wouldn't make a bit of difference."
Of Vice-President Al Gore, "He has a preference for condoms and trees instead of markets."
Condemning Pinochet's extradition to Spain for an estimated 3,000 killings and missing-persons cases, "Chileans made their choice, and have lived with it."
Why the hell are Sudan and Zimbabwe on the UN Commission on Human Rights? Isn't it f**king hilarious that the Europeans are rejecting the EU? Do you condemn multilateralism?
Chances are you probably want to further the Cult of John R. Bolton, a great American hero.
