Boortz today notes that the President has nominated John Bolton to be the next Ambassador to the UN. Boortz notes that Bolton….

…led the charge against the International Criminal Court, referring to the day he withdrew the U.S. signature on the treaty as “the happiest moment of my government service.” So far, so good. Next, he is being criticized for traveling to South Korea and calling the communist gargoyle of the north, Kim Jong-Il a “tyrannical dictator” who made North Korea a “hellish nightmare.” That sounds about right to me!  I wonder why it upsets the Euro-wimps so much. 

Then there’s this quote, another zinger about the UN: “If the U.N. Secretariat Building in New York lost 10 stories, it wouldn’t make a bit of difference.” Truer words have never been spoken. Sounds like just the man the United States needs representing us at the United Nations.

Bingo. It’s called ‘reality’, folks, and Bolton has a firm grip on it. Good on the President for nominating him.
