Ain't Karma a Bitch?

And you just never know when it's gonna come back and bite you in the ass, do ya?
Look at Paul Wiffle-waffle-weeble-wabble-woofle-witz, for example (pictured at right, apparently trying to pick his own brain in desperation). He helps talk the rest of the world into supporting the Iraq War (because Condy couldn't be EVERYWHERE, and Cheney was probably hunting), then slides neatly into a lucrative berth at World Bank, and what's causing him grief now? The golden parachute he negotiated for his tootsie-pie two years ago, plus the influence he used getting her a new job. Nothing Iraq-related at all!
Regardless, Mother Karma does not like it when you pull too hard on her skirts. Even if you try to pretend it's normal and everyone does it. The article states that Wolfy "acted in good faith and did not attempt to hide information about the package to bank officials." In other words, he said, "Sure, guys, it's shady, sleazy and unethical, but at least I'm honest about it and it's legal." Poor Wolfy--how could he know then that "ethical" would become so important later, when his cronies' dealings became more obvious (since, unlike roaches, they couldn't scuttle fast enough into the darkness when the lights flipped on).
As Mother Karma wreaks more havoc in the near future, it will be interesting to see who else's ass gets bitten. Shall we send some nice soft cushions to Pennsylvania Avenue? If nothing else, I'm sure Babs the Elder could use them during visits to soothe her 'rhoid rage when she sits in the White House chairs.
