Dollars for Bolton

A campaign – fancifully initiated by Claudia Rosett at her PajamasXpress blog – to raise money independently to pay United Nations ambassador John Bolton’s salary has picked up a surprising head of steam. The intention of this campaign is to enable President Bush to reappoint Bolton via another recess appointment, avoiding an extremely difficult confirmation process in Congress. A second recess appointment would have meant no salary for the UN ambassador.
