Via CNS News:

The chair of the U.S House Foreign Affairs Committee said Monday she will introduce legislation that makes U.S. funding for the United Nations contingent on reform. It also calls for the U.S. to withdraw from the Human Rights Council.

I understand what Humans are, and Rights. I also know what a Council is. But when you say ‘HRC’, the image formed is a relatively useless old bag of wind.
Later in the article. . .

The U.S. provides 22 percent of the U.N.’s regular operating budget. The administration’s 2011 budget request for contributions to the regular budget was $516.3 million, part of an overall $1.18 billion for the U.N. and affiliated agencies (the World Health Organization, International Atomic Energy Agency etc.)

It is likely that if the US wants the UN to be more than the low-point drain of the World Anti-Semitism System, we’re going to have to elect somebody with a clue, like The ‘Stache, or Sarah ‘Headsploder’*, or maybe Tim Pawlenty.

*I was eating breakfast the other morning, and some civilians were at the next table. A guy facing me says ‘Sarah Palin’, and the grey-haired bint with her back to me proceeded to vent her spleen. “I hate that woman. She’s so divisive. She’s got a disabled child and she’s running around the world. . .”
I had to move to another table. It would have been equally offensive to have heard such a diatribe about, say, President Obama. Only, like the Israelis, it’s OK to blast Sarah anytime, anyplace.
