Yet another crack Senator

Crybaby George Voinovich

Weepy Voinovich Begs for 'No' Vote on Bolton:
The thought that John Bolton might be confirmed as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations brought one Republican senator to the brink of tears on Wednesday.

Sen. George Voinovich (R-Ohio) choked up on the Senate floor, as he urged his colleagues to vote against Bolton's nomination on Thursday:

''I'm afraid that when we go to the [Senate] well, that too many of my colleagues -- (voice breaking) -- that too many of my colleagues are not going to understand that this appointment is very, very important to our country," Voinovich said.
Voinovich did not attend Bolton's confirmation hearings; and he surprised Republicans by raising last-minute objections to Bolton on April 19, just as the Senate Foreign Relations Committee was preparing to vote on Bolton's nomination.
I guess it wasn't "very, very" important enough for George to grace the hearings with his awesome presence. I'll spare you a further reprise of his sniveling as it is nearly impossible to discern anything specific in the touchy-feelie morass, but the general idea seems to be that he's all blubbery that John Bolton might represent the USA in the UN and not vice versa. It's a wonder that they let George out without a nanny.
