Like hiring Andrea Yates to babysit

George Voinovich’s Greatest Hits:

“This is not behavior that should be endorsed as the face of the United States to the world community at the United Nations,” Voinovich said. “It is my opinion that John Bolton is the poster child of what someone in the diplomatic corps should not be.”

Voinovich rejected the White House argument that Bolton’s acknowledged blunt manner is good medicine for a moribund bureaucracy and ingrained corruption at the United Nations. Bolton might do more harm than good, and alienate nations whose cooperation the United States’ needs, Voinovich said.

“He is an ideologue and fosters an atmosphere of intimidation,” Voinovich said. But he said it would be arrogant of him to vote with the Democrats and kill the nomination.

Should Bolton make it to the United Nations we can expect him to be entirely ineffective which the Administration will then blame on the UN. I mean, that’s been the plan all along, right?
