Alterman on Bolton

From everyone's favorite 'progressive' hack:
Let's hear it for George W. Bush's recess appointment of John Bolton to the United Nations. Bolton hates the UN, misled the Senate, can't get confirmed, may have been involved in outing the identity of a CIA agent and therefore committing a felony (and quite possibly to Judy Miller, though that part is confusing - see Arianna--) and wont [sic] reveal just who he was spying on during the UN debates, though it may have been his superiors. No wonder Condi is fighting so hard to get him out of the State Department. No wonder Bush and Cheney want him so desperately to represent them before rest of the world. They are as one. This is the true face of the Bush Administration, and I hope all of its fans can deal with that.
Oh, we'll make do, Eric...say, your name isn't Josh, is it?...
