This is rich ........the President is hosting a dinner for whom? The only way to get any respect nowadays is to subvert and undermine America. Why is Bush honoring Kofi Enema? He has never been a friend to this great country in any way. He has served to undermine the efforts and aspirations of free men everywhere.
Uh, shouldn't the dinner be honoring Bolton? I'm confused.
There is diplomacy and then there is idiocy and then there is being a schmuck. This is somewhere in between the latter two.

US President George W. Bush was to host UN chief Kofi Annan for dinner to honor the secretary general for his service despite lasting disagreements, the White House said.
Bush spokesman Tony Snow downplayed the likelihood of any bitter words with Annan, who most recently raised hackles at among US officials by branding the conflict in Iraq a "civil war."
The dinner "demonstrates that the president is somebody who does not think that, because you disagree with somebody, you can't be hospitable to them and thank them for their service," Snow told reporters.
"This is not going to be sitting around and having debates with the Secretary General. Instead, it's going to be an attempt to thank him for his service. It's an important job," said Snow.
The dinner came one day after Bush accepted the resignation of the controversial US ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, effective when his temporary appointment to the post expires, perhaps in days.
