On Sunday, John Bolton, former Ambassador to the United Nations under President George W Bush, totally disqualified himself for a state department gig. While President-elect Donald Trump is personally in denial over the reported Russian responsibility for the DNC hacks, Mr. Bolton decided he had to be the fringiest of the fringe in his view on the matter.

Mr. Bolton thinks Obama did it. No, I am not kidding:

The man reported to be Donald Trump’s pick for the number two job in the State Department says the election hacks could have been a false flag operation.

John Bolton told Fox News on Sunday that the hacks may not have been carried out by Russia, as the intelligence community believes, but implied the Obama administration itself could’ve been secretly responsible.

“It is not at all clear to me just viewing this from the outside, that this hacking into the DNC and the RNC computers was not a false flag operation,” Bolton told reporter Eric Shawn.

“False flag” is a term that refers to covert activities undertaken by a government or other entity to advance its own political agenda by making it look as if someone else did it.

Mr. Bolton is a hack. There is no way in hell that the Senate should confirm this guy. Just no way.

    Come up with excuses for the boss. Bolton is such a good worker he does his job before he has it.

    That said I’m not exactly thrilled with an Exxon CEO being appointed as Secretary of State. Correct me if I’m wrong but this is someone who managed to combine Free Trade, funding a propaganda campaign to deny (failing that distort facts about) Global Warming, and be friends with an authoritarian that misses the Soviet Union.
