    One more good reason to be thankful that George Bush appointed John Bolton to kick ***** and take names at the den of dictators and their synchophants.

    In a telling moment at a United Nations press conference Wednesday, Secretary-General Kofi Annan lost his temper — hurling insults at a widely respected senior member of the U.N. press corps. Beyond the who-what-when-where-how of this episode, the big question is: Why?


    The broad answer is that the U.N. Secretariat, despite all the recent talk of reform, evidently remains a place of secrecy and privilege, run by high officials who don’t mind talking about their global goals and grand legacies, but find it highly irritating to be held to normal standards of good governance or subjected to anything resembling the workings of a free press. And in this particular case, given the ferocity of Annan’s reaction, one has to wonder if there is even more to it.

    The occasion was Annan’s year-end press conference, at which Annan had just described his own job, and by extension himself, as “perhaps chief diplomat of the world.†It is a role, he said, that requires “a thick skin†and “a sense of humor.†But Annan displayed neither when James Bone of the London Times began asking questions referring to two of the scandals that continue to bedevil the secretary-general: the saga of Oil-for-Food, and the cameo of a Mercedes-Benz allegedly bought and shipped under false use of Kofi Annan’s name and U.N. status by his son, Kojo Annan.

    Instead of answering Bone, Annan cut him off, first calling him “cheeky,†and then interrupting him again to say: “Hold on. Listen, James Bone. You have been behaving like an overgrown schoolboy in this room for many, many months and years. You are an embarrassment to your colleagues and to your profession. Please stop misbehaving, and please let’s move on to a more serious subject.â€
    **************

    Imagine the massive hissey fits were GW Bush to treat his inquiring press in this manner. Press panties would all be atwist. Newspaper essays written and bloviation in the wind in all the media outlets.

    Beyond that, Helen Thomas would probably keel over.

    Helen Thomas :singing:
    What ever happened to that dried up old Democrat Rat, she's another one that belongs on "The List" with Gore, Ann Richards, Kerry, Daschle, Hollywood, Dan Rather, Soros, "The Uncle Teddy Gang' ect.
    Bush mopped the floor with them.

    I believe she's the cross-bred love child of one of those flying monkeys from Wizard of Oz and an Oompa-Loompa.

    Koffi Annan is a Slinky Sneaky Little Weasle, the democrats love him.

    He has "I Am A Crook" written all over his face, watch him when he smiles, he is saying to himself "I Fu-ked you again you idiot Americans"
