Bake Sales for Bolton

Here's something entertaining. I see the right-siders are raising money to pay Bolton's salary themselves (hoping that Bush appoints him as a sort of unpaid acting ambassador which apparently doesn't require Congressional approval). Yes, it has come to the point where the blogosphere (and particularly, the most unhinged portion of it) is attempting to run US foreign policy themselves. (Essentially, Bolton would be more beholden to the blogosphere than the US. Don't think so. Imagine if Bolton decides to give peace and diplomacy more than lip-service. Do you think the "Bake Sales for Bolton" would continue if he pushes for policies opposed by the wingnuts?)

If they get to send their own ambassador to the UN, I think I should be able to send an ambassador of my choosing to the UN too, to articulate my own foreign policy.

I particularly enjoyed the suggestion that kids fundraise for UNICEF and then send the money to Bolton instead, because hey, starving kids don't need food and immunization, they need a kinky walrus with a personality disorder in the UN making the way clear for the US to bomb their countries.

I think the wingnuts should forget the money angle, and see if Bolton will take payment in blowjobs. Because it certainly appears as if Pam of the Atlas Shrugs blog would be more than willing to do her bit for the winggnut cause.
