I Wasn't Born With Enough Middle Fingers

In a fit of presidential hubris, Bush sticks it to the world again and suggests the architect of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Paul Wolfowitz to head the World Bank. He's got some good reasons for it too:

"The World Bank is a large organization," Bush pointed out, just as "the Pentagon is a large organization." In other words, if Wolfowitz can manage the generals, he can certainly manage a bunch of bankers. Almost as an afterthought, Bush added a second thing Wolfowitz has going for him: "Paul is committed to development," he said.
If by development, you mean bombing the shit out of stuff, I'm with ya, George.
