Opposition To John Bolton


September 27, 2006 | Issue 42•39

John Bolton's temporary appointment as U.S. ambassador to the U.N. expires in January. This is what he's done to recently cause renewed opposition from both parties:

* Replaced his seat at U.N. with comfy hammock
* Constantly demands reform of other delegates' faces
* Set up hundreds of committees and subcommittees in effort to cut U.N.'s bureaucratic fat
* Can't keep pants on when meeting with leading senators
* Repeatedly says, "Did you hear something? I thought I heard someone talking, but I don't see anyone" when other delegates address floor
* Used aid allocated for Darfur to upgrade to premium U.N. meal plan
* Continually lapses into mocking, stereotypical Italian accent
* Has been generally as effective as rest of U.N.
