Bush Appoints Bolton to UN, Bypasses Senate

In an incredibly arrogant move Bush appointed John Bolton to be the United States Ambassador to the U.N. today in a recess appointment sending a clear message to the Senate, "I don't give a rats ass what you think.."
It was the first time since the United Nations' founding in 1945 that the United States has filled that post using a recess appointment, a backdoor procedure that permits the president to fill vacant positions when the Senate is in recess, as it is for August.
