Defining Diplomacy Down

Definition of "diplomatic":

Anyone find room for John Bolton in there? Is this surreal or what? Is Bolton really the Bush administration's idea of a legitimate ambassador to the U.N.? Are they really that blind to his profound lack of sensitivity, sophistication and finesse? Is he really just the *perfect* and obvious ambassador to come out of the Bush administration, since he accurately mirrors that administration's attitudes and demeanor? The inevitable product of the administration's cowboy diplomacy? Or is this just the administration's way of giving the finger to the world? All of the above maybe?
