Dems and World 2, Bushies 0

The Senate yesterday refused for a second time to confirm John R. Bolton as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, prompting his supporters to urge President Bush to bypass Congress and give the controversial nominee a recess appointment, which would last 18 months.

The vote was a setback for Bush, whose party controls the Senate, and the latest in a string of partisan impasses that also have stymied his efforts to appoint judges and restructure Social Security. Some senators said a recess appointment now appears to be Bolton's only hope, even though it would be politically contentious and would send him to the United Nations under a cloud. That action could come as early as July 2.
Give it a rest, Bush. You've had two blocks, blockhead. The people don't want him, either. Why not appoint someone to the post of United States Ambassador to the United Nations who is not hostile to the UN and who actually represents America? What a novel idea.

Voinovich moves up another notch on my scale of good Republicans.
