The True Enemy Has Revealed Itself

Wolfowitz correctly identifies the source [MSNBC] of wrongdoing in his ouster:

Departing World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz in a radio interview broadcast Monday blamed an overheated atmosphere at the bank and in the media for forcing him to resign…

“I think it tells us more about the media than about the bank and I’ll leave it at that,” he told the British Broadcasting Corp. “People were reacting to a whole string of inaccurate statements and by the time we got to anything approximating accuracy the passions were around the bend.”

Wolfowitz said that he was pleased the bank’s board accepted that he had acted ethically, and in good faith in his handling of a generous compensation package for his girlfriend and bank employee Shaha Riza in 2005.

Classy to the end, Wolfowitz has spared the media the full brunt of his wrath, a wrath fully justified by the conduct of the media in this matter. A decent man has lost his career; meanwhile, the buzzards and vultures continue to caw over the corpse they’ve slain. But he who laughs last laughs best. Wolfowitz may be down now, but history will remember him as a Promethean figure, languishing as a martyr for helping us all.

For my part, I only hope that one day I have the signal honor of voting for Paul Wolfowitz in a Presidential election. A wiser, more mature nation will probably see him enter the White House in 2017, or perhaps 2021. For now, we can only hope that he enjoys his well-earned respite from public office, and doesn’t turn his back on a nation of ingrates forever.

  1. In President Brownback’s second term, I bet ordinary Americans will rise up and demand the repeal of the 22nd Amendment so that we can elect him to a third term. So I think that 2021 is when we’ll see President Wolfowitz.

  2. The irony here is pretty heavy. Apparently someone has forgotten that it was media-derived money (from his Stauffer in-laws) that got Sam elected to the Senate in the first place.

  3. Sam Brownback got elected because God wanted him to. It’s as simple as that, Albatross.

  4. HAHAHAHAHA! It’s so sweetly ironic! The dirty media liberals got Sam elected to senat

    But seriously, lets go to matters at hand.

    Paul Wolfowitz hooks his girlfriend up with a sweet promotion and he shouldn’t be held liable? That’s apretty hot form of nepotism and cronyism, if you ask me.

    Not to mention the fact he works for one of the most evil groups in the world. The World Bank constantly keeps third world countries in the third world by forcing them to take high interest loans that they can’t repay. On top of that, they force them to open their doors to international corporations that take all of the money out of the country.

    Be careful, Paul and his World Bank are scary like you wouldn’t believe. These fuckers are Bond-Villan Evil.

  5. “Sam Brownback got elected because God wanted him to. It’s as simple as that, Albatross.”

    Are you saying that God is ill-gotten, under the table, dirty money from a media conglomerate? Because that’s how he got elected.

  6. Colin C.: please watch your pottymouth. A lot of children read this blog.

    I don’t think the World Bank should be giving these third world countries any loans at all, especially if they can’t pay them back. If they need money, let them make their own.

    If the World Bank were taking money away from third world countries, then maybe I would support it. But everybody knows that they don’t have any money, and if they keep failing to pay back their loans the World Bank sure isn’t making any money on the deal. So I say, shut ’em down. I think that’s what Wolfowitz was trying to do, and his bleeding-heart, tax-and-spendocrat employees at the World Bank got him kicked out for it.

    I am nauseated by your baseless slanders against Senator Brownback. All the matters you describe were fully investigated and, naturally, there was no evidence of wrongdoing found because nobody did anything wrong.

    Go Brownback!

    Quit putting words into other people’s mouths. Nobody implied that Sam the Sham did anything wrong. I merely pointed out that casting aspersions against the media machine is pretty ironic when the facts are that Sam got elected because of media money, and still holds lots of stock in media corporations. If the media represent evil, as you seem to imply, then Sam and his family should divest themselves of this filthy lucre…

  8. Better that Stauffer Communications should use its money on electing Senator Brownback, who wants to clean up the media and silence the voices of atheism and treason, than that it should give it to somebody like Hitlery Clinton, who wants to force our children to watch p_rn_gr_phy all day. Plus, by marrying into the Stauffer family, Senator Brownback probably just wanted to get close to them to show them the error of their ways, which he did. And by holding stock in media companies, he is in an ideal position to influence them in a positive direction, and to crush mercilessly any communist or vegan or sodomitical elements that arise in them.

    Clearly the Senator’s efforts were not adequate to prevent the shameful hitjob carried out by the media on Paul Wolfowitz, however. He is after all only a Senator. Wait to see what he accomplishes as President!!!

  9. Perhaps you can help me, I’m curious about Sen. Brownback’s position on an issue very important to me and what the Bible might say.
    You see, I like to sprinkle meth on my boyfriend’s cr—h and snort it off, it gives me quite a buzz. Now, my boyfriend eats lots of beans before I s—k to him, so that way he gets gas and when I’m inside him he can f–t and it feels like I’m in a v——-r. You can imagine that it is quite pleasurable when I’m already buzzed from the meth. (Our mother once walked in on us, boy was that hard to explain)
    Now, my question is this: while we’re doing this we like to worship a golden statue of Galileo, is this a moral thing to do?

  10. If the media represent evil, as you seem to imply, then Sam and his family should divest themselves of this filthy lucre…”

    Maybe the reason it’s not even worse than it already is is because patriotic Americans are keeping at least some small say in its direction. I, for one, think Sam Brownback should INCREASE his holdings, not decrease them. We need to drive the liberals out of the media if we’re ever going to hear the truth in this country.

    “Now, my question is this: while we’re doing this we like to worship a golden statue of Galileo, is this a moral thing to do?”

    Nothing you’ve described is moral. All of it is extremely immoral. You require spiritual assistance.

  11. Kudos to Mr. Wolfowitz for pulling the covers off these characters. Their shenanigans deserve to see the light of day, so that the American people can decide what should be done about it.

  12. Ugh. Please cleanse the filth from this thread. I’d like to read a discussion about the media jihad against Paul Wolfowitz, not the sick fantasies of leftist deviants.

  13. I edited “Seeker of Truth”‘s comment.

    It was pretty over the line for a blog that tries to maintain a G rating.

    Children are reading this blog. Please refrain from posting lurid descriptions of unspeakable fantasies. Otherwise, I have to edit them.

    Apologies and thanks all around.

  14. Seeker of Truth, your comments get me hot. You sound like someone I would like to know, dong-wise that is.
