'Weasonable on Wolfowitz'

As I posted earlier, Paul Wolfowitz, one of the architects of our New American Century, is being nominated by Bush to be head of the World Bank, pending European approval (ha!). Matt Yglesias makes a good point in that we really don't know what Wolfowitz might do with the World Bank, though we might have suspicions. Perhaps we should reserve judgement. As Yglesias notes:
Preventative wars are not, I take it, something the Bank head is able
to launch.

For some reason, I find that line funny. In any case, perhaps we SHOULD reserve judgement. In the words of a great philosopher, 'Only Nixon could go to China.'
