Bolton: What's that damn quacking noise? 

Bill "Hello Kitty" Frist screws the goat pooch twice in one week:

Democrats forced the Senate to put off a final vote Thursday on John R. Bolton's nomination to be U.N. ambassador...

Democrats contended [correctly! Where are the NSA intercepts that Bolton could get, but the Committee can't see?] the White House had stiff-armed the Senate over classified information on Bolton's tenure in his current job as the State Department's arms control chief, and demanded more information before the Senate can give Bolton an up-or-down vote.

Republicans needed 60 votes to end the Democrats' procedural delays and move to an immediate final vote on Bolton's confirmation. But the vote to halt the stalling was 56-42, four shy of that threshold.

Frist loses— but so does Bush. Bolton was Inerrant Boy's latest thumb in the eye to the Dems, and He lost.

Frist was right: Bush is a loser.

Quack, quack!
