Blog Roundup #17

A sampling of United Nations related blog commentary

CAPTAIN’S QUARTERS: “Voinovich’s continued offensive against Bolton will rankle the base, especially in light of fellow Ohioan Mike DeWine’s participation in the confirmation agreement. Now with all of the shenanigans going on in the Senate, the last thing the GOP caucus needs is another “maverick” showing up the leadership and the White House.”

LOADED MOUTH: “As I’ve reported before, the UN World Food Program (WFP) is runing extremely low on funds, and for the people of Darfur, this is the worst possible time for a WFP budget crisis because Sudan’s rainy season starts in a month, which will make the transportation of rations nearly impossible. But even I’m surprised at how far in the hole WFP is. There’s still time to donate. Hint hint.”

WASHINGTON NOTE: “Doug Jehl captured the rarity of a Senator like Voinovich breaking not only once with his party — but essentially THREE TIMES — given his “Dear Colleagues” letter on Bolton.”
