Ah, the power of the Blog!
Yesterday I blasted John Bolton, the recess-appointed U.N. Ambassador. "Egotistical intolerance" was sited by some 64 former American ambassadors and diplomats who signed a letter asking the Senate not to confirm him. By late afternoon yesterday, Bolton gave up and announced his resignation! He didn't mention FightingBob.com, but we know. And some say blogs have no influence. Hey! Got rid of Bolton yesterday, didn't we? Look out Cheney, you may be next!
Headline in Cap Times:"Gender wage gap narrows" Yippie the father of three girls, two grandaughters, several nieces, two sisters and a working wife shouted. But I read on--"Reason? Men's pay is down." Damn. And Wisconsin is really bad. Women earned 25 percent less in 2005, worse than the 23 percent gap the year before. That is a disgrace.
The man of the year may well be Hugo Chavez. Despite millions spent by the CIA to defeat him, Chavez got 62 percent of the vote in the presidential election. "A victory of peace, a victory of love, a victory of hope," exclaimed Bush's enemy.
Let's See: Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Venezuela. While Bush is bogged down in Iraq, the left in South and Central America is winning.
