The Wingnut-o-sphere is so angry at Voinovich...

GOP Senator Voinovich is uneasy with rabid neocon John Bolton as Bush's nominee for Ambassador to the United Nations. Rightwing blogs are apoplectic... Ankle Bitting pundits: "Sometimes you wonder if the GOP deserves to have a majority in the Senate. After today, the answer may be 'No'"...Power Lie: "This is bad news: Senator George Voinovich broke ranks today..." Astute Blogger: "BOLTON IS PERFECT; VOINOVICH IS A COWARD..." Beltway Buzz: "In addition, Voinovich did not attend the committee hearings last week - but he didn't let that stand in his way." C&L writes: "I guess it doesn't matter to them if a candidate in a very important position is seriously vetted. I suppose tomorrow Poweline will have done no research and proved that the new allegations came from Harry Reid's office." (CrooksLiars)
