"And I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide"

...blocked again! And Voinovich voted with us this time!

Kaus' silly theory -- Dems secretly want Bolton to be confirmed because it puts him in a less damaging position than if he were in the State Department -- grazes against credibility until you remember that...

1) Bolton has already left the State Department. (And by the way, everyone working with the State Department couldn't be happier)

2) Democrats -- real ones, not faux ones like Kaus -- care about the UN.

3) We want Bolton out of public service altogether.

Now the battle over Bolton may come down to whether or not Bush is willing to spend that "political capital" of his on a recess appointment.

(Anyone else like early Nirvana?)
