"We are not electing Mr. Congeniality. We do not need Mr. Milquetoast in the United Nations. We're not electing Mr. Peepers to go there and just be really happy, and drinking tea with their pinkies up and just saying all these meaningless things when we do need a straight talker, and someone who's going to go there and shake it up." -- Sen. George Allen, R-Va.Bloggers can be a young crowd so I linked a site on Mr. Peepers for those who can't remember. My Dad enjoyed the show and Wally Cox.
Problem of course is they don't say meaningless things in the UN and do say some very destructive things which Botlon successfully had them retract. That's why we need a straight talker like Bolton.
One of the worst things the US can do is be ambiguous. We're a hard people for the rest of the world to understand, and misunderstanding the United States -as Saddam showed- has grave consequences. That's why we need a plain talker in the UN.
Don't worry about how other country's feel. Worry do they understand the United States.
