Senator George Voinovich of Ohio, Republican, said that if John Bolton were in the private sector, he’d be fired. He also called him “arrogant” and “bullying.” “This administration can do better than that,” he told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He said Bolton was the “poster child of what someone in the diplomatic corps should not be.”

So he couldn’t vote for Bolton’s nomination, but he agreed to send the nomination to the floor without approving or disapproving it, saying, “I am not so arrogant to think that I should impose my judgment and perspective of the U.S. position in the world community on the rest of my colleagues." Of course not. God forbid.

Apparently, nobody told President Bush that the White House had been evacuated after the Cessna scare until after he finished riding his bicycle, or whatever the hell he was doing. This followed established White House “protocols.”

Can we stop seeing pictures of the Cessna on the news now, by the way? That would be great. In my opinion, this was the greatest non-news news story of all time. Any other contenders?

Pat Buchanan puts it in perspective for us. Thanks!
From yesterday’s column: "If the objective of the West was the destruction of Nazi Germany, it was a 'smashing' success. But why destroy Hitler? If to liberate Germans, it was not worth it. After all, the Germans voted Hitler in."
