Milosevic dead

Former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic was found dead in his cell earlier today. Good riddance to bad rubbish. The point I wanted to make in regard to this was how the international "justice" system works -- or rather, how it doesn't. Slobodan Milosevic has been on trial since February 2002, defending himself against 66 counts […]

Another NYT editorial

The Times also takes the U.N. to task for the sexual abuse of local populations by U.N. peacekeepers. Maybe the Times should have had this issue in mind when Democrats were attempting to stymie the nomination of John Bolton to be the United States ambassador to the U.N. After all, don't you really want a […]

Sick 'em Johnny

If there was any doubt that the United Nations needed someone like John "Darth Vader" Bolton in the building putting up a fuss, this would dispel it. The United Nations' funding of a Palestinian Arab propaganda campaign timed to coincide with Israel's pullout from the Gaza Strip has increased tensions between the U.N. and American […]

Bolton's in

Bush bypassed those annoying Democrat senators today and gave a recess appointment to U.N. Ambassador John Bolton. Democrats are, predictably, outraged by the move. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Massachusetts, criticized the recess appointment. "The abuse of power and the cloak of secrecy from the White House continues," Kennedy said in a statement. "It's bad enough […]

Call a waahhhhmbulance

Sen. George Voinovich's voice is breaking up, he's on the verge of tears, over the possibility of John Bolton becoming U.N. ambassador. Givest thou me a break. What the h-e-double hockeysticks was going through voters minds in Ohio when they elected this guy? Someone buy Voinovich this shirt -- it might serve as some sort […]

Where do we go from here?

This should be the plan for the next few days in the Senate: Get Priscilla Owen, William Pryor and Janice Rogers Brown confirmed. Get John Bolton confirmed to the post of U.N. Ambassador. Then start bringing up the other judges to test the Senate's 14 moderates. Will they be filibustered too? Will they be voted […]

Bolton again

Over at National Review's "The Corner" there are a plethora of posts on the John Bolton nomination. It appears that the more Melody Townsel's (of Mothers Opposing Bush) charges against Bolton come into public view, the more apparent it is that she's a big, fat liar.

My second Bolton post

I hadn't intended on addressing the nomination of John Bolton to be U.S. representative to the U.N. a second time, hence the misnamed nature of last week's post. But, as I've continued to watch both talking heads on the cable news programs and verious Democratic pols, I'm mystified by the opposition to him on grounds […]

My only post on the Bolton nomination

As a rule, a president should be able to staff his administration with anyone he chooses, as long as they're not demonstrably incompetent or crooked. But I have to agree with this article in The Washington Post which takes John Bolton, the president's nominee to be U.N. ambassador, to task for appearing at his confirmation […]
