The next UN ambassador to the US 

James Taranto blogs at today's Best of the Web about the mainstream media's foaming on the mouth about John Bolton:

"The Washington Post's Dana Milbank gives the game away:

Most Republicans skipped the hearing, leaving Democrats largely unchallenged as they assailed Bolton's knack for making enemies and disparaging the very organization he would serve.
"That would be the U.N.--but of course the American ambassador to the U.N. is supposed to serve America, not the U.N."
Which reminds of that delightful quote from "Yes Prime Minister", that the British Foreign Office (their equivalent of the State Department) is so called because it represents the interests of foreigners. You can think of it as a diplomatic equivalent of the Stockholm Syndrome.
