Snatching Idiocy from the Jaws of Insight

Even being right for once, Friedman displays his exceptional powers for fatuousness.

In this case, he opposes John Bolton’s nomination as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, in favor of … wait for it … George H.W. Bush.

“I can’t think of anyone better than George H.W. Bush, with his diplomatic Rolodex and instincts, or worse than John Bolton. Mr. Bolton’s tenure overseeing U.S. antiproliferation efforts at the State Department is a mixed bag: success with Libya, utter failure with North Korea and Iran.”

And on a related note, we have it on good authority that there is just a one Friedman unit window before it is too late to bomb Iran.
