Bye-bye, Bolton! That job reference from Chimpy should qualify you for work at any KFC outlet in the country. Uh, wanna shut the door on your way out?

Actual newspaper caption: President Bush, meeting with John R. Bolton yesterday in the Oval Office, praised him for his “advocacy of human rights and human dignity.”


If a picture is worth a thousand words, imagine how much this one ("An Antechamber in Hell"?) would go for. All that's missing is a little table with tea service--including maybe finger sandwiches?

Seriously, though, could this scene have been imagined by anyone but that master of cynicism and surrealism, the late, great Luis Bunuel? I mean, John Bolton and George W. Bush sitting around chatting about "human rights and human dignity"?

K, Pretty insulting to the those who have the people skills to deal with the public at low wages don't you think?

Bolton is one of the signers of the
"Principals Statement" for the New American Century along with Rumsfeld, Cheney, Jeb Bush, Wolfowitz...

Hmm, fair point about the people skills, which I confess I don't always fund in abundance when I pop into fast-food joints.

How would this be: Given the nationwide shortage of people with decent people skills, Bolton should qualify for a TRYOUT at any fast-food joint in the country? He starts screaming at, or otherwise abusing, the customers, though, and he's OUT.

Chimpy, meanwhile, could probably fake the people skllls but by about his 2nd customer of the day would probably have a tough time maintaining his focus, or interest. (Attention-span issues there.) People would be lucky to get ANYTHING to eat, let alone getting their orders filled correctly. And as Bill Clinton would certainly have understood from all his time hanging out at McDonald's, while people may be fooled about Chimpy's "likability," customers do have the basic expectation of GETTING THEIR DAMNED FOOD ALREADY.
