    David Brooks is just awesome!

    About his point about Bolton's value in this position, he is exactly right. The man isn't near perfect, but at this point in the UN's life, he is the right man for the job, for both America and the UN's sake.

    We wouldn't be reading that article if kerry had been elected. We'd be sending just another in a long line of UN butt-kissers and we'd be signing over more of our sovereign rights in the process.

    I hope this guy lives up to his billing. It's high time we gave the UN the finger.

    "These supranational organizations exist in their own insular, self-indulgent aerie."

    How beautifully put. How very true.
