Kennedy must resign!

Posted by Richard on May 3, 2005

For 20 years I have kept my silence. I will do so no longer. In the debate over John Bolton’s nomination to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, it finally has been made clear to me that a human being who yells at another human being does not deserve to hold high office.  It’s what Sen. George Voinovich calls “the Kitchen Test.”

Go read the rest; you’ll enjoy it. Cliff May was an editor at the Rocky Mountain News for a number of years (I’m thinking late 80s to late 90s). He was quite friendly and sympathetic toward the Libertarian Party, attending events and speaking at meetings, and he struck me as intelligent, warm, and funny. I’ll try to keep an eye on his foundation.
