Extreme Makeover: John Bolton Edition

This man is John Bolton, Bush's nominee for U.S. ambassador to the United Nations (despite the fact he once said that if the top 10 floors of the UN headquarters disappeared, "it wouldn't make a bit of difference."). CNB is not here to criticize him, although that is the rage these days (even Colin Powell calls him "problematic").

Rather, CNB is here to say the real reason John Bolton will never get the nomination. Look at him -- white moustache and lousy Supercuts haircut circa 1981? Forget it. Just because your politics are stuck in the Reaganriffic 1980s doesn't mean your appearance needs to be. He might get head of the local Chamber of Commerce, but that look doesn't fly at the UN, no matter what floor you are on.
