Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


The White House is starting to hint that they may give a recess appointment to John Bolton. If the president does so, Bolton would become acting UN Ambassador until a new Congress convenes in January 2007.

MSNBC has reported that Bolton testified before the grand jury investigating the CIA leak case, something he didn't tell the Senate Judiciary Committee during his nomination hearings this past spring.

Since the president and his staff are staying mum on the "ongoing investigation," it seems inappropriate to appoint Bolton since he may be involved, or at least didn't feel the need to disclose any of this to the Senate. As the president says, let's learn all the facts before we make a decision.
