Yard, yesterday.

Unfit to serve
Undiplomatic, hostile no-talent assclown should step aside.

Bush's nomination of John Bolton to become United Nations ambassador began as an embarrassment and is ending as a disgrace.

The best case that can be made for Bolton is that he's no worse than other neoconservatives. But Bolton also appears to have a mean streak, a pattern of arrogant recklessness that bodes ill for this assignment. If there is anyone in the US government who needs to be infinitely patient, it's the ambassador at the UN, who must constantly engage representatives of dozens of nations - diplomats Bolton would no doubt find infinitely annoying. Not only does he lack the temperament for the job, it's hard to imagine why he'd want it.
