The Moustache Speaks!

John Bolton has a book out, Surrender Is Not an Option: Defending America at the United Nations and Jay Nordlinger of National Review has a peak at his upcoming review.

There are also plenty of excerpts from the book.

After some additional desultory chatter, Bush went to the nearby office of General Assembly president Eliasson, for yet another annual courtesy call. Bush reiterated what he’d said to Annan about the lack of American public support for the UN, which prompted Eliasson, Swede extraordinaire, to explain American public opinion back to Bush. Bush just looked at him and said patiently, “If there were a referendum today, I don’t think the UN would win,” which pretty much ended that discussion, other than for Bush to say, “That’s why we sent Bolton up here, to get things fixed.” Bush visibly lost interest in further conversation with Eliasson . . .

I could see Eliasson wasn’t listening; he again discoursed on U.S. public opinion, so I told him to stop listening to Human Rights Watch and start reading National Review, although I was not sure he knew what National Review was.

Can you imagine any other US Ambassador to the UN telling the President of the General Assembly to read National Review?

Here’s the deal, I don’t have a candidate yet for 2008 but I am offering the prestigious “DrewM Presidential Endorsement” to the first candidate, Republican or Democrat, to announce they will make Bolton Secretary of State in their administration. I realize this endorsement isn’t as valuable as the Jack M. seal of approval but it’s got to be worth at least as much if not more than Walter Mondale’s endorsement of Hillary!
