John Podhoretz is the gift that keeps on giving. He really is. Lawyers Guns and Money catches this bit of math wizardry.
And here is a sampling of some of Podhoretz’s greatest hits…just from today:
HOPELESSLY CONFUSED [John Podhoretz]
Could one of our Hill geniuses weigh in here? Since Voinovich said that he believed he shouldn’t second-guess the president and he thought Bolton deserved an up-or-down vote in the full Senate, wasn’t he saying he would vote to confirm him — and that therefore this whole thing is over and Bolton has made it? Or since he said he wanted the nomination to get to the whole Senate without a positive recommendation from the Foreign Affairs committee, has he somehow figured out a way to vote No? Helllp!

IF HEGEL(sic) BEHAVES… [John Podhoretz]
…it looks like Bolton’s in. As I understand it now from a whole bunch of Hill geniuses kind enough to e-mail me, Bolton will be reported to the full Senate without a positive recommendation from the Foreign Affairs Committee. He doesn’t need the positive recommendation. With 55 Republican senators (and the vice president there to break a tie in case four GOPers join Voinovich in voting against Bolton on the floor), Bolton should make it through. If he doesn’t, then it’s really GOP crack-up time.

YOU MAY THINK MY DAD IS A NEO-CON [John Podhoretz]
In fact, given his taste for high-end equipment, he is actually a Stereo-Con.
