How Bad is Bad?

Not only is John Bolton a bully, a kiss up, kick down kind of guy, contemptous of the chain of command, arrogant, badly in need of adult supervision and "the poster child of what someone in the diplomatic corps should not be," but according to Newsweek he doesn't even bother to do his job.
“John was absent without leave” when it came to implementing the agenda that the president laid out in his February 2004 speech, a former senior Bush official declares flatly. Another former government official with experience in nonproliferation agrees. “Everyone knew the conference was coming and that it would be contentious. But Bolton stopped all diplomacy on this six months ago,” this official said. “The White House and the National Security Council started worrying, wondering what was going on. So a few months ago the NSC had to step in and get things going themselves.”
Senator Voinovich had it right when he said, "John Bolton would have been fired if he worked for a major corporation." Instead, he's given a promotion.
