A belated congratulations...

...to Paul Wolfowitz, for his confirmation as president of the World Bank.

Wolfowitz's appointment sparked much liberal ire because Wolfowitz had committed the unpardonable sin of wanting to bring democracy to the Middle East.

Now exactly why this should render him unfit for duty at the World Bank was unclear to me. It seems it was unclear to the World Bank as well. The board's vote was unanimous.
