who will be next World Bank President What will they do


Germany and Paris. German Development Minister Heidemarie Wieczorek-Zeul has come out and said it: Wolfowitz should resign. But let's not dare upset our friends on Pennsylvania Avenue.

"The U.S. interest in naming the World Bank president is not being called into question by the German government," she said.

"The United States should rather be given room to react to the current leadership crisis in the bank," she added.

In other news, perhaps Wolfowitz should consider hiring Paris Hilton's lawyer (or her friend Joshua). After all, PW has certainly provided excitement to our otherwise mundane lives.

That should count for something.

"If the late former President Gerald Ford could find it in his heart to pardon the late former President Richard Nixon after his mistake(s), we undeniably support Paul Wolfowitz being pardoned for his honest mistake."
