Mr.Muggs is on the verge

There is quite the circus sideshow going on a nation's capital. No, not our nation's capital, although that is humorous, I am speaking of the attempted confirmation hearing of John Bolton in Washington. Bolton is trying to become the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Bolton (another Bush draft dodger through deferment) is some piece of work. He believes that the United Nations (an organization ripe with problems - to be fair) is a complete waste of space. In fact, he is quoted as saying: "There is no such thing as the United Nations... if the UN secretary building in New York lost ten stories it wouldn't make a bit of difference. This appointment makes about as much sense as Canada appointing Jacques Parizeau to some international role.

It is bad when your friends and follow Republicans testify that you are evil. This has been the case for the better part of the past two weeks. Bolton is accused of bullying intelligence analysts into coloring their assessments to fit his views. Helps explain why the Iraq dossier was such a disaster.

In fact, Bolton is not getting any help on his file from one of the only federal politician’s with bipartisan appeal - Colin Powell. If Colin Powell, who worked with him for four years, is not going to bat then I say move on.

George W may I suggest Plan B - this Bolton appears available.
