Colbert: All Hail UN Secretary-General Bolton

The Bush administration has made many bold and audacious, if not completely mind blowing appointments since taking office - from choosing Paul Wolfowitz as the head of the World Bank to the appointment of John Bolton as ambassador to the UN. However, Stephen Colbert one-ups them by suggesting that John Bolton should not only be the US ambassador to the UN, he should run the UN.

As Colbert points out in this clip, Bolton is "morally superior" and he is "building alliances" and "bringing the whole world together."

Bottom line: Bolton has the "bold leadership" that can end all of the UN's problems.
