Bolton Nominated to UN

How about some good UN news for a change? President Bush has nominated John Bolton as ambassador to the UN. Bolton wrote the letter to Kofi Annan explaining that the US would not be part of the International Criminal Court. He is, in fact, a critic of the UN and a hawk on Korea and Iran.

How good a choice is he? Consider this Reuter's statement:
"Several officials from U.N. Security Council member states expressed astonishment that Bush would name someone they believed had a known antipathy towards the United Nations."

Props to the White House. Watch the Democrats scream on this one.

Update:

Frank. J. Gaffney, Jr. on NRO agrees.
President Bush is responding to these tough times at the U.N. with a bit of tough love. His selection of Undersecretary of State John Bolton to be the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations signals a call for systemic change, not merely superficial behavior modification.

Rush Limbaugh on his March 9, 2005 radio broadcast was trying to introduce John Bolton as GWB's nominee to the UN Ambassador post to one listener.

After a short pause, perhaps in the interest of time, he declared something like this [not the exact quote, I was driving], "If you don't know John Bolton, just listen to how much the liberal Democrats are against him, its almost a guarantee that he MUST be good."
