Bolton Gets Turked

Trump dispatched Bolton to Turkey, all hopeful,
That he could mansplain Trump’s Syrian “withdrawal.”
But Erdogan, alas,
Gave Bolton a pass,
To remind Trump that it’s Istanbul, not Constantinople!

Rand Paul Has Reservations About Bolton, Giuliani

I will tell you something I haven’t told anybody else. I’ve had some conversation with some other Republican senators and I’m not the only one with some misgivings over both Giuliani and Bolton. And I haven’t met a Democrat that’s for either one of them. But I’ve met several Republicans that aren’t.

— Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), in an interview on Hardball, on who might be the next Secretary of State.

Hirsute of Lip

John Bolton’s seeking conservatives near and far
To help him be the GOP’s 2016 rising star.
But his big liability
Might require a pogonotomy.
See, we haven’t elected a mustachioed president since Teddy R.
