B*tchslapping the U.N.
Yesterday, President Bush nominated Undersecretary for Arms Control John R. Bolton to be the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
You know, Kid Various loves the President more and more each day. Who else would have put in the U.N. seat someone who once said:
If the UN secretariat building in New York lost 10 stories, it wouldn't make a bit of difference."Multilateralists" are predictably outraged.
Mr. Bolton, 56, is considered one of the administration's leading conservative hawks. He pressed the case for war with Iraq. And he has been witheringly critical of autocratic countries including North Korea, Iran, Syria and Cuba.Because, you know, God forbid someone should be critical of North Korea.
In July 2003, as delicate six-party talks including North Korean were about to start, Mr. called Kim Jong Il, the North Korean leader, a "tyrannical dictator" of a country where "life is a hellish nightmare." North Korea responded furiously, saying that "such human scum and bloodsucker is not entitled to take part in the talks" and that Pyongyang no longer considered Mr. Bolton to represent the administration.Anyone whom Kim Jong Il calls 'human scum' and a 'bloodsucker' is ok in The Kid's book. Kid Various looks forward to many years of Ambassador Bolton telling the despots of the world where they can stick it.
