Goo goo g'joob!

Good news on a surprisingly cold Monday morning. US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton has thrown his weight around the Security Council table for the last time.

Stick a fork in him. "He served his country with extraordinary dedication and skill" is my favorite line...yeah, that's what he did George.

Quick check o' the facts:

This war-mongering walrus (and no, he most certainly is not the eggman) couldn't even get confirmed by a Republican controlled congress. These are the same people who love to impose our will militarily around the globe and they wouldn't even get behind this loon.

Bolton is just frightening. Seriously, it's like Captain Kangaroo hopped up on Red Bull and hate.

Good riddance to him and his "Fuck you if you don't agree with us" style of "diplomacy". What Bolton never got (nor has Bush for that matter) is that it's the United NATIONS...not the United STATES. These malevolent boys that somehow managed to sit down at the grown ups table have just been so pleased with getting their hands on the controls that common sense and actually working through our differences with anything other than tanks and tomahawk missiles never even enters the equation.

So W sneaks him in the back door during a congressional recess a bit over a year ago and now he's bowing out before we have a chance to unceremoniously dump his ass.

Just a few of my favorite nuggets from the captain:

"Diplomacy is not an end in itself if it does not advance US interests."

"We estimate that once Iraq acquires fissile material - whether from a foreign source or by securing the materials to build an indigenous fissile material capability - it could fabricate a nuclear weapon within one year."

"There's no such thing as the United Nations. If the UN secretary building in New York lost 10 stories, it wouldn't make a bit of difference."

Adios, El Capitan. What a beautiful difference you made and oh how you give, give, give 'til it hurts. We'll miss you...and Mr. Green Jeans.

i don't do carrots.
