Caricature artists, get ready, here comes John Bolton and his mustache. John has been seen reading maps of Iowa and practicing with a Frisbie. That tells us that, if he deems he has any chance at all, he will be throwing his hat into the 2012 ring. To borrow a phrase from Rowan and Martin’s Arte Johnson, that could be …”verrry eenteresting.”
A Bolton run would be more fun than a human being should be allowed to have. John is already a certified target of the liberal press so we know he is a bona fide conservative. He knows his way around Washington but without the tarnish of ever having been an elected politician. He is a no-nonsense guy who goes right to the point. The greatest scandal in his background was relieving an incompetent bureaucrat from his duties. Somehow I don’t think that will hurt him. And best of all, he can speak with no teleprompter at all.
