John Bolton
Mr Bush’s handlers’ plan to make him the US ambassador to the UN seems to me a now-classic modern example of conservatives being played. Ten years ago Mr Bolton would have seemed a hero to real conservatives (around the time Specialist Michael New was lauded for refusing to go under UN command) — because it was thought that to be anti-UN was to be for peace and against interventionist foreign policy. Now he’s being used by Mr Bush and company to give the finger to the UN for the latter’s opposing their interventionist, literally bloody fool’s errand.
