In bypassing the Senate to appoint John Bolton as US envoy to the UN, George W. claims he was forced to do so by "shameful delaying tactics" on the part of Democrats.
I would have thought it was the White House employing delaying tactics when "citing executive privilege, also refused Senate Democrats' calls for records" in relation to his intimidation of subordinates who did not agree with his views on security matters.
Also, it has been claimed the military commissions to try prisoners at Guantanamo Bay are rigged, with "juries selected to ensure conviction".
This is a pic of a friend in Iowa as we went 'road-hunting'. When reading the Bolton stories, this pic immediately came to mind as somehow appropriate. "You in there UN? I'm a comin' to git' ya!"
