Rude Pundit reminisces about "lying sack of shit" Bolton's views during the Clinton administration.
Quick thought: It's interesting how the NY Times and others, such as The Washington Note's Steve Clemons, have criticized Bush™'s choice of Bolton as a bad one. True, if your goal is to engage the UN and the rest of the world. But Bush rarely says what he means or means what he says. And this is no exception. Bolton wasn't nominated to the UN to engage it but to gut it. His hard-core opposition to ElBaradei was one arm of the pincer attack against the UN after the November election, the other being the assault on Annan. Don't mess with Texas.
