Excellent news ... John Bolton Resigns from the UN

The Washington Post is running the story that John Bolton has resigned from his temporary UN appointment.

Unable to win Senate confirmation, U.N. Ambassador John Bolton will step down when his temporary appointment expires within weeks, the White House said Monday.

Bolton's nomination has languished in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for more than a year, blocked by Democrats and several Republicans. Sen. Lincoln Chafee, a moderate Republican who lost in the midterm elections Nov. 7 that swept Democrats to power in both houses of Congress, was adamantly opposed to Bolton.

There was some pretty loud chortling around my house this morning when I read this story.

No chance in our new Congress. Thank GOD. No, the electorate. Thank THEM.
