Breaking Through the Bottom of the Barrel

From Holden:

Georgie picks John Bolton to represent you at the UN.

UPDATE: The Council for a Livable World opposed Bolton’s nomination as the State Department’s Arms Control leader, pulling out these telling Bolton soundbites on the UN.

“Moreover, many Republicans in Congress – and perhaps a majority – not only do not care about losing the General Assembly vote but actually see it as a “make my day” outcome. Indeed, once the vote is lost, and the adverse consequences predicted by the U.N.’s supporters begin to occur, this will simply provide further evidence to many why nothing more should be paid to the U.N. system.” Washington Times, 10/24/98

At a 1994 panel discussion sponsored by the World Federalist Association Bolton claimed “there’s no such thing as the United Nations,” and stated “if the UN secretary building in New York lost 10 stories, it wouldn’t make a bit of difference.”
