One of the greatest losses as a result of Tuesday’s Republican debacle is that of the last sane voice in the United Nations, recess-apointed John Bolton. Ambassador Bolton has been a voice of reason and sense, speaking truth to a corrupt organization while still holding true to the original precepts of that once-great insitution.
Alas, loser Lincoln Chafee (one Republican I’ll say who actually did desrve to lose this year) has put the kibash on the re-nomination announced by the White House the other day.
The great shame and embarrassment for Captiol Hill Republicans (okay, well, one of them) is that it was in deference to Chafee himself that the renomination was earlier tabled. The reasoning was that, to better endear himself to voters in far-left Rhode Island, the leadership should not put him on record as having supported this sage man, which he did last year, but for some reason (perhaps not having the sniveling George Voinovich’s dress behind which to hide this time?) flip-flopped on support.
It’s anybody’s guess what drove this pathetic man to change his opinion on a man for whom even leftists Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton had shown support. Was it sour grapes for Chafee that he decided, as one of his last official actions as a Senator was to stab America in the back by denying us this most qualified UN Ambassador we’ve had in my lifetime? Was this a parting blow to a President or conservative establishment who Chafee might have thought didn’t support him fervently enough against an actual conservative, Steve Laffey, in his state’s primary?
Whatever the reasoning, on behalf of the Nation and Freedom-loving people everywhere, thanks, Senator Chafee, for the slap in the face. Enjoy your retirement, and choke on it.
