Threads in a thin-clothed, unscrupulous coat can sometimes completely unravel in a couple of buffs of wind.
If considering the banking industry as a whole, especially way up on an international financial ladder, one would believe those involved in the whole process are fairly well-educated, have some hint of decorum. Paul Wolfowitz, former highly-incompetent war-brain at the Pentagon, considered one of the “architects” of the horrificï¿½mess in Iraq, has apparently now shown his attempted-skill at scaring folks with a cartoon-like, street-level intensity. The Wolfman, appointed by Decider George to head the World Bank after fucking up the entire Middle East, has gotten himself into a real-shitty situation.
The Wolfman has been taking care of his woman real good the past couple of years, and the whole, nasty episode has started to get surreal. The problem Wolfman encountered was that as head of the bank he took care of his old lady a little bit too much in a manner similar to some cheap gangster. He also apparently kept a logbook of everybody’s goings-on at the World Bank. Wolfman was covering his bets.
Last month, the Wolfman was brought to bear for the huge pay packet for his girl friend, Shaha Riza, also a World Bank employee. The package included $193,000 in salary, which is some $186,000 more than Condi Rice.
Last week, the bank’s board met and poured over their feelings and the report of those self-same feelings came out today along with an anticipated appearance of the Wolfman to make a final defense of his actions.
The published report, according to The Guardian Unlimited in a story at guardian.com/uk, says Wolfman “saw himself as the outsider to whom the established rules and standards did not apply.”
The Guardian story also cites notes taken in a meeting shortly after the story appeared last year. The notes read: “At the end of the conversation, Mr. Wolfowitz became increasingly agitated and said he was “tired of people…attacking him’ and ‘you should get your friends to stop it.’ Mr. Wolfowitz said, ‘If they fuck me or Shaha, I have enough on them to fuck them too.'” And he apparently designated several World Bank guys who were open for some Wolfman blackmail.
Tough sonofabitch, huh? He’s tough all right. Starting with his first little government job in 1966 as a management intern at the Bureau of the Budget, Wolfman has fucked up a lot of ground. Wolfman’s stated intent when named a World Bank chief in 2005, after fucking up Iraq, was to clean up corruption. Hypocritic asshole!
The Wolfman’s still has support, however. Dufus Dick Cheney stands by his man, even if he’s a total, arrogant fuck-up. “Paul is one of the most able public servants I’ve ever known,” Dufus Dick reportedly said. “I think he’s a very good president of the World Bank and I hope he will be able to continue.” Dufus Dick knows his shit: Not!! Of course, Dufus Dick can get testy too: He told a US Senator to “Fuck Off” a couple of years ago when the senator in the Senate asked about Halliburton’s no-bid, shitty-work, big profits scene in Iraq. Wolfman and Dufus Dick has been close suck buddies since the mid-1970s.
Decider George’s White House is also sticking by their man, but they can see the handwriting on the wall. Spokesman Tony Snow said that while Decider George has full confidence in Wolfman, “all options are on the table.” One of Decider George and his cronies favorite little catch-line (and many, many other political whacks) is the good-old, tried-and-tested “options on the table,” as in bombing Iran, Syria, India, Mexico.
This administration’s plans for Iraq,ï¿½picked like a sore, from the likes of Wolfman, Douglas Feith, former Defense Secretary Don Rumsfeld and a host of other nit-wit, talking-out-of-their-asses people who concocted the road to ruin in Iraq. These arrogant, incompetent and fairy-tale false warriors will someday pay the price of a not-giving-a-shit attitude.
Wolfman is all peeved. “Fuck me and I’ll fuck you back.”
We say: Fuck you Wolfman and the Dufus Dick you rode in on.
