Wolfowitz Reviewed

Michael Lind, writing in Salon, says of Paul Wolfowitz:
"Even the greatest statesman makes some mistakes. But Wolfowitz is perfectly incompetent. He is the Mozart of ineptitude, the Einstein of incapacity. To be sure, he has his virtues, the foremost of which is consistency. He has been consistently wrong about foreign policy for 30 years."
Not an evil genius, Lind argues; just consistently, catastrophically wrong. And in keeping with Bush's revision of the Peter Principal, whereby people are now promoted far beyond their level of incompetence (see Rice, Condolleeza and Gonzales, Alberto), having done just about as much damage as is humanly possible at the Defense Department, it's time to give him a broader area, the world's economy, to muck up.
