Quote of the day 

This might be about the shortest post I've ever written but I just couldn't let this one pass. From the New York Times:

Ambassador John Bolton told The Associated Press that Chavez had the right to express his opinion, adding it was ''too bad the people of Venezuela don't have free speech.''

Of course Rush Limbaugh and the like turn these howlers out all the time. But this is the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations so we have to draw some conclusions. The only ones I can think of are that he is a) a very poory informed person or b) a dishonest person. I tend to think the latter.

In any event, given this bizarre assertion I wonder what we should make of his allegations regarding Irans supposed nuclear ambition?

Oh and another thing, the poor U.S. taxpayers sure are getting taken for a ride paying this guy's salary aren't they?
