Bolton is Daily Show-ed (video)

Jon Stewart has an appointment with Bolton, examining Bush's follow up speech: "Bush tried to turn the spotlight on Bolton's positive characteristics. For example, did you know he was born of human parents?"

Of the boos Bolton received upon his confirmation, Stewart asks correspondent Rob Corddry whether this is something that concerns Bush. Corddry responds: "Indeed Jon, that's exactly the kind of issue that would concern him along with his deteriorating relationship with his own congress, that is, if he gave a fuck." So they're not delicate... these aren't delicate times. (video courtesy Crooks and Liars)
