Wolfensohn, Wolfowitz--What's the Difference?
A question: Since when has the president of the World Bank really mattered to anybody aside from 17-year-old Black Brigade anarchists who soak bandanas in their own urine and wear them over their mouths to ward off tear gas fumes and pepper spray?
Isn't this a huge demotion? Unless I'm terribly misinformed and the president of the World Bank gets to invade other countries. Then it's a lateral move, I guess.
UPDATE: No! It's worse than a demotion, as former colleague and longtime drinking partner Jesse Oxfeld points out--it's directly following in the footsteps of the last architect of "failed, quagmire-creating, we're-winning-really-we-are DoD policies." Second time farce.
