We’ve been tough on Minnesota Senator Mark Dayton here as his performance in the Senate seemed to manifest his personal difficulties, but Dayton has nothing on Ohio Senator George Voinovich. Yesterday Voinovich blubbered like a baby on the Senate floor over the prospect of John Bolton becoming the United States Ambassador to the United Nations.
We adjust the lyrics of the Lesley Gore song only slightly: “He felt like making a scene/Then his tears just fell like raindrops/’Cause Bolton’s smile was so mean.” One difference: Gore was a little tougher than Voinovich is, but we do hope “Johnny comes back to [him].” Should Johnny return, Voinovich may need a straitjacket to regain his composure.
