It's true...

From the AP:
President Bush on Wednesday tapped Defense Deputy Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, who has been a lightning rod for criticism of the U.S. invasion of Iraq and other defense policies, to take over as head of the World Bank. Bush told a news conference that Wolfowitz, now Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's top deputy, was "a compassionate, decent man who will do a fine job at the World Bank. That's why I put him up."

I'll refrain from commenting on how Bush defines "compassionate and decent." It almost goes without saying how low that bar is set in his regime.
I love this quote too:
"He is a man of good experience," Bush said. "He helped manage a large organization .... a skilled diplomat, worked at the State Department."

I guess now we'll see how long it takes for the World Bank to become FUBAR.
