So much for Bolton's recess appointment 


The State Department reversed itself on Thursday night and acknowledged that
President Bush's U.N. ambassador nominee gave Congress inaccurate information about an investigation he was involved in.

The acknowledgment came after the State Department had earlier insisted nominee John Bolton's "answer was truthful" when he said he had not been questioned or provided information to jury or government investigations in the past five years.

And why was Bolton's answer "not truthful"? Wait for it...

"When Mr. Bolton completed his form during the Senate confirmation process he did not recall being interviewed by the State Department inspector general. Therefore his form as submitted was inaccurate in this regard and he will correct the form," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said.

Look, I can understand how Stealthy John Roberts would forget whether or not he was a member of the most powerful theocratic front organization in the country. That's the sort of thing that could happen to anyone.

But how on earth could Bolton not remember being interviewed by the State Department inspector general? Is that the sort of thing that happens to Bolton every day? Was the General just not in uniform? Did Bolton confuse him with the inspector admiral? Was wind from the fan in Bolton's office blowing his moustache over his eyes when the General came to call? Was Bolton so busy licking Wolfie's comb that he didn't notice who walked in the door? WTF?

How do the Republicans find do it? How do they find the energy to lie all the time?
