#1 A more likely reason is that Kofi ran out of other people's money.

#2 Does this mean we won't have Kofi to kick around anymore? Nah, he'll be back just as soon as a big pile of money accumulates somewhere.

#3 Does this mean that the "Reset" button didn't work? Or, is this more "Smart Diplomacy"?

Now THAT's unexpected.

#5 Just couldn't come up with the "It's Bush's Fault" explanation? Damn, another card has expired.

#6 Whitehouse should send a thank you card; Kofi opened up a position for Obama who will be looking for work in November.

#7 "White House blames Russians and Chinese ... "

Well of course. Once the Russian advisors stop getting takeouts of polish sausages & mustard, and the Chinese experts stop ordering takeouts of kung-pao chicken, how can any good restaurant keep operating in Syria? So as someone wryly observed yesterday, once those 5-star dishes are all gone - do you relaly think that Kofi and the UN boyz are going to stick around? Ha!!! The very thought of it!

#8 airandee, I'm afraid I agree with you 100%.

#9 Some people, when relieved of the restrictions of political office, inflict even more lasting damage as a civillian than they were even capable of as a government official.

The repulsive connotation of Barrick Obama prancing about on the world stage, for decades to come, is an ill-boding and repugnant prospect, which we will undoubtedly have no alternative but to detest, and dutifully endure.
