American Rep Waves White Flag at Bali

Yvo de Boer can dry his tears: Paula Dobriansky, head of the US delegation at the Bali farce, has agreed that we will commit economic harikari in the name of the global warming hoax, so as to mitigate the disapproval of hostile bureaucrats.

De Boer is Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. He "is known in the Netherlands for his passionate advocacy" of the global warming hoax. As his fellow bureauweenies squabbled over how best to redistribute America's wealth and suppress economic growth, his emotions became too much for him:

Mr de Boer, distinctively dressed in a floral shirt, stepped up to the microphone to defend his staff — only to find that the words would no longer come.
As his unfinished sentences trailed away, he broke down and walked off the platform to supportive applause.
"He wasn't just wiping his eyes, he was in floods of tears," said one observer.
"Three colleagues — one of them a woman — formed a protective group around him and escorted him out of the hall. It was all very dramatic."

That's him in the silly shirt, next to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moonbat:


Hitler couldn't destroy America, nor could Hirohito. But this weeping kook in a floral shirt just might.

Unable to withstand pressure from clowns like de Boer — and Al Gore's seditious demagoguery — Dobriansky knuckled under to the Lilliputians who are using the imaginary climate change crisis as an opportunity to bring down America. She whimpered that we will "go forward and join consensus."

Too bad you can't buy stock in the UN. It would be the only stock that won't go through the floor when the moonbattery unfolding there hits our economy.

On tips from Ian from the EUSSR and mega.

What saddens me is that supposedly professional diplomats would fall for such blatant theatrics. Not to mention so-called professional journalists.

The whole thing is just so deeply pathetic it makes me want to chew off my feet.

Hey de Boer! Stop crying or I'll give you something the cry about!

When even "our own" people sell us out for a cry-baby (I do hope he feels much better now!), then we have no chance whatsoever. Perhaps Ms. Dobriansky should read the Moonbattery story about the 100+ real scientists who have voiced their opposition to the AGW panic/hoax, not to mention Michael Crichton, and many others out there who "deny" the so-called "consensus."

But it's so much easier just to "go along to get along," the American people be damned.

You're overestimating the influence of Paula Dobriansky. Remember, the Clinton Administration (in the person of Al Gore) pushed the Kyoto Protocol. The Senate turned them down—with an all but unanimous vote.

"Three colleagues — one of them a woman — formed a protective group around him and escorted him out of the hall. It was all very dramatic."

This has to be a case of feminist bias. Why on earth is it important that we know one of the colleagues was a woman?

It's like the woman who washes Jesus' hair with her feet. It creates an image of divine, but humble vulnerability around our flowery shirted messiah.

*Jesus' feet with her hair, I meant

Take a close look at those two guys sitting next to it just me, or is that contempt/stifled snickering I see in those guys???

Dave, you said: "You're overestimating the influence of Paula Dobriansky."

I hope you're right! I pray you're right! I do recall the Senate voting 95-0 against the idiotic, destructive Kyoto Protocols a few years ago; my fear is that GWB, now in his lame-duck "dotage," will accede to the demands of the Moonbats on display in Bali, so his "legacy" will be more complete.

If you doubt me on this, think "Palestinian State before his term is over," to paraphrase Van Helsing on Moonbattery, on GWB's and Condi Clueless' recent efforts in Annapolis ["Let's Talk to the Terrorists!"]

There's a word for a guy like de Boer:
