Don't let the door hit you on the way out
Good riddance to Bolton. A true embarrassment for our country.
From TPM Muckraker:
Next year marks the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. As far as anniversaries go, it seems like a good one to recognize, doesn't it? It should not be a real bone of contention to say that one is against slavery; and, upon hearing of the anniversary of its abolition in one region, to acknowledge that as a good thing; to recognize the cost of the practice in the millions of lives uprooted and forced into extreme suffering; and to celebrate the efforts which ended the horrific practice.
To do so, a number of Caribbean countries got together to propose a commemorative resolution before the United Nations.
Guess who refused to sign? That's right: Ambassador John Bolton's United States.
You can find the rest here.
