Irony is now officially dead. Drawn, quartered, buried at a crossroads at midnight with a stake through its heart, and sown with salt.
Also, I really don't understand why Paul Wolfowitz continues to hold his job at the World Bank. Apparently there's simply no accountability for giving his girlfriend an 80% raise and a cushy promotion -- something he's not even trying to deny at this point. I have no knowledge of World Bank personnel policies, but if they're anything like those of any other major enterprise, that would be a firing offense for anyone below Wolfowitz's management tier.
Without respect to partisanship (admittedly difficult where uberNeocon Wolfowitz is concerned), where is the meaningful consequence for this behavior?
