Monbiot Goes all Barney Fife

Citizen's arrest! Citizen's arrest! Citizen's arrest!

Van Helsing notes the self-inflicted beclowning of George Monbiot:
George Monbiot, the damp little rodent from whose name the term moonbat is believed to have been derived, has announced a bold plan to subject former UN Ambassador John Bolton to a citizen's arrest for imaginary "war crimes."
Word is, he tried, but was thwarted when a pile of wet napkins blocked his path. Apparently much huffing, puffing, and foot stomping followed.

I've wondered about the origin of "moonbats". If this guy isn't the true root, he'll do until a better one comes along.
