John Bolton - International Man of Mystery

Lots of those appologist folk are going about telling people that John Bolton is the right man for the job and start listing lots of things besides his abbrasive personallity to make him look like he may very well be the right man for the job. Just this weekend on Meet the Press, Marry Matlin was squick to put this whopper out:
What John Bolton has done has been the president's point person on the only effective collective global security initiation since 9/11 which is the PSI, the Proliferation Security Initiation, which was instrumental in getting Libya to disarm, was instrumental in breaking up A.Q. Khan. He's elevated to the top of the G8 global agenda of non-proliferation issues. That's what the collective global security strategy in the 21st century needs to be and John Bolton's been the point person on that.

Furthermore, he's a highly skilled and accomplished public servant. He's been in four Senate-confirmed positions with three presidents, and finally he is a wonderful man with a generous heart, a great sense of humor. He's quiet and he's a man of humbleness and humility and the John Bolton that's being portrayed in this attack in another instance of nothing, no agenda, just obstructionism by the Democrats, is everything to do with politics on their side and in our side everything to do with getting the best people in the best place in the best policy to assure just not America's security but global peace.

Let us ignore his abrassive personality shall we? Let us focus on this compentency issue because last I checked Iran and North Korea are a hair away from being nuclear (if they aren't already). This happened on John Bolton's and George Bush's watch then didn't it? I mean Libya may have been cookin somefin up in whatever part of that country Reagan left standing after his "surgical strikes" but Libya? Come on, a couple of F16 strikes by the gipper and Quadafi was sent into shit cleaning heaven for decades. I think he shat himself so hard that day that he is still cleaning up the mess.

So if Iran and North Korea getting nukes on John Bolton's watch isn't enough proof of failure, then perhaps skipping out on Non-proliferation Treaty Hearings (that are playing a particularly important role in denuking said countries) because he was too busy kissin Bush's anal pylorus for the job he is comming under intense scrutiny for has got to be right?

Thanks Newsweek:
But if the NPT needed so much fixing under U.S. leadership, why was the United States so shockingly unprepared when the treaty came up for its five-year review at a major conference in New York this month, in the view of many delegates? And why has the United States been losing control of the conference’s agenda this week to Iran and other countries—a potentially serious setback to U.S. efforts to isolate Tehran?
Part of the answer, several sources close to the negotiations tell NEWSWEEK, lies with Bolton, the undersecretary of State for arms control. Since last fall Bolton, Bush’s embattled nominee to be America’s ambassador to the United Nations, has aggressively lobbied for a senior job in the second Bush administration. During that time, Bolton did almost no diplomatic groundwork for the NPT conference, these officials say.

“John was absent without leave” when it came to implementing the agenda that the president laid out in his February 2004 speech, a former senior Bush official declares flatly. Another former government official with experience in nonproliferation agrees. “Everyone knew the conference was coming and that it would be contentious. But Bolton stopped all diplomacy on this six months ago,” this official said. “The White House and the National Security Council started worrying, wondering what was going on. So a few months ago the NSC had to step in and get things going themselves. The NPT regime is full of holes—it's very hard for the U.S. to meet our objectives—it takes diplomacy.”

However, we have seen this before. Condi Rice was supposed to be doing what John Negroponte is doing now in his newly created expansion of government Director of National Intelligence job and she was promoted to Secretary of State. So what is it besides incompetence that can be used to try and unseat a person who is potentially slated for a Bush appointment. Hmm... There has been one recent example of an embattled Bush appointee, his name was Bernie Kerik.

If I recall correctly. Bernie Kerik got hit so hard with sex scandals that he thought stepping down was the easy part.

EUREKA! Larry Flint has got the goods! Bolton emulates Austin Powers almost to a T. He is incompetent even when he has lots of help (like from mary Matlin, and the president), and now we find out... He's a SWINGER BABY YEAH!!!!

Court records concerning the divorce of John R. Bolton, the Bush administration's nominee to become the next ambassador to the United Nations, show his first wife fled the couple's marital home when he was traveling abroad in mid-August 1982. The records further show that she took most of the couple's furniture.

Corroborated allegations that Mr. Bolton's first wife, Christina Bolton, was forced to engage in group sex have not been refuted by the State Department despite inquires posed by Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt concerning the allegations. Mr. Flynt has obtained information from numerous sources that Mr. Bolton participated in paid visits to Plato's Retreat, the popular swingers club that operated in New York City in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

So Georgey Bush, the EYES AND EARS OF THE RELIGIOUS PURITAN CHRISTIAN DO NO EVIL rank and file are a watching. Do you still want a SWINGIN' International Man of Mystery? Do I make you Horny baby?! Do I?!

I for one say go for it! He can start his first day at the UN by saying, anyone who wants anything from the US has to let me have sex with their wife first. Otherwise no deal!
