Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

John Bolton
by Cordeiro
Alright, I've had enough. I'm tired of Dusty Harry and Company, along with their very willing and stupified accomplices in the MSM trying to derail the nomination of a very qualified man to be the US ambassador to the UN.

The Foreign Relations Committee Democrats (and the MSM) are busy dredging up anything and anyone John Bolton may or may not have offended during his entire life. Three spineless so called Republicans are doing their best to act "concerned", "surprised", and "uncomfortable".

In fairness, I went to an MSM source (Newsweek's Michael Isakoff & Mark Hosenball) to learn of the horrors and atrocities committed by Mr. Bolton. Here are my findings:

The aforementioned journalists managed to dig up a former ambassador to South Korea (Thomas Hubbard) who related Bolton's reaction to him not arranging a meeting between Bolton and the President-elect of South Korea in 2003.

Bolton erupted in anger and slammed down the phone when he learned that the ambassador hadn't arranged a meeting for him with the president-elect of South Korea..."He was very angry, Hubbard told NEWSWEEK today in an interview. "He berated me for failing to get him the meeting."
I don't know about you, but I'm shocked. Somebody berating another for failing to do his job. Hubbard also accused Bolton of "undiplomatic behavior".

Other highlights of Hubbard's accusations include him attempting to persuade Bolton to tone down his description of North Korea as a "hellish nightmare" and Dear Leader Kim Jong "Mentally" Il as a "tyrannical dictator".

Apparently Mr. Hubbard has a problem when North Korea and its leadership are described using appropriate terms and metaphors.

One of the most outspoken accusers is Melody Townsel, who claims Mr. Bolton threw things at her and chased her around a Moscow hotel while she was working for the US Agency for International Development and Mr. Bolton was a private lawyer. Her supervisor says she reported no such claims. Perhaps she suffers from the same virtual memory syndrome that afflicts so many liberals. Oh, did I mention she's a self described "very liberal democrat" and her most recent claim to fame is her involvement in the MOB (Mothers Opposing Bush). Conflict of interest anyone?

John Bolton may be abrasive. He may be politically incorrect. What he is not is a spineless weenie who will let the UN run roughshod over him and the interests of the United States. It seems to me that the National Enfeeblement Movement passed this guy right by - and I'm OK with that. Bolton evidently stays true to the first and most important of Cordeiro's Rules which is:

Being responsible sometimes means pissing people off.

Memo to Senators Hagle, Chafee, and Voinavich - grow a spine (even if it has to be a temporary transplant), get with the program, and get the hell out of the way.

Here endeth the lesson.

I think these senators do have a "spine" though you may disagree with their opinion. I think it takes a lot more courage to listen with objectivity to Democrat concerns and heed them, rather than tow the Republican line. All Voinavich was asking for is more time to address questions he has. Bolton will probably get the nomination regardless.

More about this in the NY Times

It doesn't take any courage to listen to a bunch of sore losers whose mission in life it is to stonewall the W administration at every opportunity.

At best, Hagel, Chafee and Voinavich want to be seen as "bi-partisan" - which in Washington speak means letting the Democrats run the show. Hell, Voinavich didn't even show up for the two days of testimony.

The Dems learned well from their hatchet job on Robert Bork and their attempted torpedo of Clarence Thomas. The 'seriousness of the charge' (however baseless it may be) far outweighs any evidence supporting said charge.

The next witness against Bolton may well be his high-school prom date who will no doubt claim he was undiplomatic during the entire prom.

If we're going to excoriate Bolton for having problems with his temper, then perhaps we should put Hillary on the stand and ask her (under oath) about her treatment of the White House Staff and proficiency at throwing lamps and other household items.
