now i am getting paranoid

I made a post on monday which has vanished without a trace. I had not been into my dashboard and deleted the rant (although it's not there either) nor has anyone else accessed my computer. (The cat, I notice does have a shifty expression now i come to think of it). All posts i make get automatically mailed to me, so I know i have not gone mad (well not this time). So who did it? How did it happen? Was it abducted by aliens, a cia/asio plot, a bored teenage hacker, big brother at blogger? Or did the mac just hiccough?

Anyway here it is/was - Democracy in Action

So Bush found a way to send his bovver boy John Bolton to the UN without the Senate’s approval. Very clever, wait til they are having a break and use presidential powers to appoint someone out of session. It is so democratic, just what you would expect from such a wise leader.

If you have missed the story so far, Bush earlier in the year announced his controversial preferred candidate to be the US representative to the UN. Bolton was a very unpopular choice, known around the halls of power as a bully and lacking the sensitivity, outlook and skills to fill the job at hand. Even some of his Republican colleagues had spoken out against him. For months the Senate has been blocking the appointment. It is well known that Bush has been a bit miffed with the UN for their lack of support of the US over its invasion of Iraq and even as a temporary ambassador for the next 18 months, can expect his man in big boots to come in and kick some shit out of this failing organization. Full castration of the UN can be expected by the end of the year.
