ANOTHER BUSH SCREW-UP: BOLTON AT THE UN

I really don't know how everyone else feels about "mondays"; you know, that wonderful first day of the work week for most of the working population. Personally, I'm not real fond of them. Usually, how Monday goes can tell alot about how the week will go.

Well, this Monday, 1 August 2005, really sucked! Bush, in all his fucked-up wisdom, appointed John The Temper Tantrum Bolton as ambassador to the United Nations. Because the Senate was out on a month long recess the chimp bypassed it and made the appointment after a testy five-month standoff with Democrats who argued that the tough-talking conservative was unfit for the job. Which he is.

At a White House ceremony with Bolton and Condi Rice, Bush said that"this post is too important to leave vacant any longer, especially during a war and a vital debate about U.N. reform."

Well of course it is, but that arrogent idiotic jackass isn't the right person and he sure the hell isn't going to help. This fool is only going to make the United States look like a bigger bunch of self- serving bastards than the fucking chimp already has.

From the White House, Butt-head Bolton went directly to the State Department where he was sworn in. He arrived at the U.S. Mission in New York to begin work within five hours of his appointment. Five hours to go from White House to State Department to New York...hmmm...traffic must have sucked.

Citing the large number of recess appointments made by presidents, the Bush administration said there is nothing extraordinary about the appointment. But most recess appointments have involved lower-level government positions and do not represent such direct defiance of the opposition party. "It is highly unusual to use it at this level," said Paul C. Light, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who specializes in executive-branch staffing.

In the 19th century, the constitutional power to make recess appointments was frequently used out of necessity to keep the government staffed and running when lawmakers were away for long periods. In recent decades, they have increasingly become a convenient way for president to circumvent Senate opposition to controversial picks.

Under the Constitution, Bolton's appointment will last until a newly elected Congress takes office in January 2007. There could be a good chance of him loosing the position if we can get enough Progressives or REAL Democrats elected in the fall of 2006.

Until at least January, 2007, we're stuck with this jackass as our Ambassador to the United Nations. I guess we have one of two choices we can make at this point...leave him alone and let him prove us right or prove us wrong, or be pissed off and watch his every move and jump all over his and Bush's shit everytime he fucks up. Me personally, I'm pissed off so I can't wait for him to fuck up so I can blast both him and that stupid chimp.

Eddie, I don't know about you, but I have become increasingly familiar with profanity since this administration stole the past 2 elections. 'GD, F**k, shit (well, not shit!) but a lot of words I didn't use on a routine basis.......but NOW, well, every other word is a curse when I think, write or talk about these bastards. See!
