There was a major fuss from the left when Jeanne Kirkpatrick was nominated to be US Ambassador to the UN. There was much hand wringing and gnashing of the leftist's teeth when Daniel Patrick Moynihan said simply "It is a lie." when the UN passed its infamous “Zionism is racism” resolution. Or when the late Senator called Idi Amin a "racist murderer", after Amin addressed the organization and was granted the same respect and status as a democratic leader. So now the leftists continue their hand wringing, gnashing of teeth and their usual name calling over the Bolton nomination.
