HUFFING AND PUFFING AFTER THE WOLF IS ALREADY IN (via Kevin Whited):

Muttering at the World Bank: Wolfowitz's Appointment of Loyalists Disturbs Some Staffers (Paul Blustein, February 8, 2006, Washington Post)

At the World Bank, they are sometimes referred to as "the entourage," "the palace guard," or "the circle of trust," because of their close relationship with bank President Paul D. Wolfowitz. They are Americans with ties to the Bush administration, and the immense clout they wield has sparked a furor in the ranks of the giant development leader.

Their roles have rekindled fears among the staff that Wolfowitz, the former U.S. deputy defense secretary, is bent on imposing a conservative agenda on the bank.


Pretty quick on the uptake, huh?

Reminds me of OJ's comment that it was worth nominating Wolfowitz just for the fun of watching the paranoiacs go nuts about evil Jewish bankers.
