1. Stick him on a horse and have him lead an infantry charge in Afghanistan...

Tie him to a pole in Arlington and have him stare at tombstones until he cries

Make him work in a VA rehab facility until he collapses

Have him spend time in an inner city ER where he'll see gunshot wounds all night.

Force him to visit the families of 'Nam dead and tell them why he joined the Guard to get out of going.

(From his Wikipedia entry-- Bolton was a supporter of the Vietnam War, but purposely avoided military service in Vietnam.)

The guillotine is too good for him.
