Dude, like give us Barabas or something

So Bushie picked Bobby. Wow. Another Bush family lifer unilaterally picked by the US. The man who did so much as USTR to make the Doha round the rousing success it is today will now lead the World Bank.

Does anyone think this will work? Have the Bank staff and Eurocrats had their fill, made their point, and will now accept another Bushite? Is Zoellick's lack of an Iraq connection enough to get him by? Or will there be an open revolt?

I personally would rather see Mr. Zoellick replace Steve Irwin than Paul Wolfowitz. He has ample qualifications for that.

ps. To see my choice to run the bank, look here.
