Cogs can think.

I'm a mere, tiny, insignificant cog in a whole clockwork of stupidity.
The little cog that wanted to break free, I am.

I told you so...

Now this is *exactly* why I find republics retarded, and why I never hope my country will become one.

To summarize: the American senate couldn't agree on whether or not to send Bolton to the UN as the US ambassador. So, the president of the US of A, calmly waited until the senate was in recess so that he could use his absolute power to force Bolton into the post.

This should *never*, NEVER EVER be possible in a true democracy. This is president Bush using powers only dictators have. Now it's Bolton, next time he'll do something else?

I'm so happy to be living in The Netherlands.

Anyway, this quote by Bush is priceless:

This post is too important to leave vacant any longer, especially during a war and a vital debate about U.N. reform.


If you find the UN so important, mr. American president, then why don't you pay the stellar debt you have at the UN, hmmm?

Ugh, politicians are snakes.

It's even worse with Bolton, who is a staunch UN critic, who bullied subordinates and helped inflate the whole Iraq WMD thing.

Oh yes and this is the first time ever a President appointed a UN ambassador this way.
