Bolton For The Exits (Letters From a Crank Vol I Issue#2)

Dear Nice Folks:

Got another empty earful this morning about that allegedly Nasty Man and the troubles with his confirmation as UN ambassador. This story was just like all the rest: namely, that the main problem with Bolton's nomination is that he is really, really mean to his subordinates, and that he demands pre-programmed results without regard to facts or principle. Hell, if that were enough to give someone the boot from a government job, Karl Rove would be working at White Castle instead of that other White establishment.

The funny thing is, in your copious reporting, I have yet to hear anyone mention what I--and admittedly, I am insignificant--would consider Bolton's most salient shortcoming for the postion: His relentless hostility to the very institution and its ideals.

Your coverage seems to me a bit like if Bush had nominated a member of Hamas to be ambassador to Israel and you reported that opposition consisted primarily of claims that he yelled at his subordiates about the color of their keffiyehs.

Keep on Schmuckin',
