Bolton's appointment

It now seems likely that Bush will appoint the unbelievably undiplomatic Bolton to represent the United States to the United Nations. There are few people I would be more unhappy about having be my country's public face to the world. Given his lack of qualification, both on his resume and in his persona, I think there must be some other reason why Bush wants him there.

Is it just Bush thumbing his nose at the hated United Nations? Is it to take some of the heat off of Karl Rove? Or is it a reward for keeping his mouth shut about his part in misleading the United States into war?
