Re: Bolton

From a reader:

Subject: You are an idiot!!!

you have to be kidding me!!! This is one of the most juvenile articles ever written!!! Article after article after has been written recounting Bolton’s crude Neanderthal treatment of underlings, his abuse of power and his outright disregard for the law and you say:

In other words, all of the “controversy” of the last couple weeks is bogus. It’s a kabuki dance. Whether the allegations against Bolton are true or not is almost entirely beside the point, because if a completely unrelated set of facts were not in play, no one would care. In short, this is borking pure and simple.

What’s bogus? Carl Ford’s testimony!!! Bolton’s failure to follow State Department procedure!!! The fact like so many neo conservatives he does let the facts get in the way of anything he wants to do. Bolton is not even a credible critic of the UN. He is childish, self absorbed, sissy!!! I wish there was a real policy argument to have!!! The problem is that the neo conservative viewpoint is devoid of any intellectual thought. But Jonah like all good totalitarians you must perpetuate the lie. You must ignore the facts and keep up the grand illusion regardless of how the rest of us are laughing you.
