Wolfensohn, Wolfowitz, Whatever

The current president of the World Bank, James Wolfensohn, is stepping down.

So, if there were a list of people that we'd never want to see as President of the World Bank, who would make that list?

Personally, one of them would have to be Defense Deputy Secretary Paul Wolfowitz.

Why? Well one would think that having some actual development experience would be the central qualification for the BIGGEST DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATION IN THE WORLD, right? Paul Wolfowitz, who has no development experience whatsoever, is really more about the business of destruction. Also, how well do you think he'd work with the nations who opposed his NeoCon fantasies about "installing democracy" in Iraq?

So who is Bush recommending as World Bank president?

Paul Wolfowitz.

Perhaps Bush heard the question incorrectly and thought that he had to name someone with "wolf" in their name? Here are "Top 10 Reasons Why Paul Wolfowitz Would Make a Good World Bank President".

Sorry, but the description for that job should end with "NeoCon Warmongers Need Not Apply." But Bush seems to like to recommend people for jobs that they a) aren't qualified for or b) are on the record of hating the institution that they are now in charge of running-- why would he deviate from that pattern now?
