We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Mark Malloch Brown was installed as Kofi Annan's chief of staff through the machinations of Richard Holbrooke, acting for what amounts to the Democratic party, in an effort to 'save' Annan from the oil-for-food scandal.
I never understood why the Bush administration stood by for this guy. It seemed almost as though, what with the war and all, Bush just let the Dems 'have' the UN--probably on the premise that a mess was better than a disaster.
Anyhoo, Brown is not only Soros' boy, but he is also the Kennedy/Kerry wing's boy, as Holbrooke would almost certainly have been Kerry's secretary of state.
I urge you to look into Holbrooke's record as a DC insider. Start with East Timor, and proceed to the Credit Suisse/Bank of Boston financial scandals.
That Wolfowitz is in those people's way, is a great testament to the morality and character of Wolfowitz.
