Not Satire

U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

This article seizes the opportunity to make fun of Ohio Senator, and Ohio University alum, George Voinovich. Not a bad cause:

One of Bolton's Republican critics - Sen. George Voinovich of Ohio -- now says he thinks Bolton is doing a good job.

"I spend a lot of time with John on the phone. I think he is really working very constructively to move forward," Reuters quoted Voinovich as saying on Monday.

Voinovich added that he's still watching Bolton -- but, "at this stage of the game I am pleased with the progress that is being made here and the team that he has gathered together here."

In May 2006, the thought that Bolton might be confirmed as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations almost brought Voinovich to tears.

Voinovich's emotional moment came one day after he sent a letter to his fellow senators, telling them, "In these dangerous times, we cannot afford to put at risk our nation's ability to successfully wage and win the war on terror with a controversial and ineffective ambassador to the United Nations."
