Bolton hearing delayed

The Republican-controlled Senate Foreign Relations Committee - in a move that would have made Richard Nixon squirm - delayed a vote on the nomination of John Bolton as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Allegations have surfaced that he may have thrown something at a subcontractor in a hotel lobby during a disagreement, which is an interesting form of diplomacy but may be the kind sorely needed in the UN.

I hope that Bolton does throw a few things if he makes it to the UN, particularly at anyone having to do with UNSCAM. Maybe then people would take more notice of a line of dirty tricks, backroom deals, and resulting cover-up that makes Watergate look like "The Dukes of Hazzard."
