Tom Bevan has a great post this morning on the Dems deep-sixing of John Bolton. Despite Bolton’s proven successes at the U.N., Democrats remained bent on destroying him and installing an ambassador with a more “multilateral” approach. Such a nominee would only perpetuate the crooked status quo at the U.N.
Now the talk is turning to who will replace Bolton. George Mitchell is mentioned as a candidate conservatives would be happy with but some expect the Mitchell trial balloon to be designed only to make the eventual nominee look reasonable in comparison. Dumb strategy.
If that is the strategy, start with Santorum and let liberal U.N. lovers go into full moonbattery mode, then move to Mitchell.
