Buh-Bye, Bolton

Bush accepts Bolton’s resignation. President Pouty McPoopypants complains that meany Democrats won’t give Monsieur Moustache "the up or down vote he deserved," then elucidates the devastating consequences these traitors’ actions will have for America: "[T]heir tactics will disrupt our diplomatic work at a sensitive and important time. This stubborn obstructionism ill serves our country, and discourages men and women of talent from serving their nation."

Stupid me—this whole time I thought the military was suffering recruitment shortages because of the war in Iraq, but really it’s because Democrats don’t like John Bolton.

(Thanks to the busy Litbrit for the heads-up.)
