At yesterday's news conference, George W. Bush discussed his nominee for ambassador to the U.N., John R. Bolton. Bush said that although Bolton is blunt, he himself is blunt -- giving rise to this Scribble take-off on the Blues Brothers as the Blunt Brothers. There's an arrogance about Bush's statement that is if he's that way then it must be good. It's a full-on arrogant syllogism by the president: Bush is blunt; Bush is good; Bolton is blunt; therefore Bolton is good.

"John Bolton is a blunt guy," he said. "John Bolton can get the job done at the United Nations."
