Wolfowitz Confirmation Likely; Europeans Adopt 'Passive Aggression' Strategy

Stung by the furor over the nomination of Paul Wolfowitz to head the world bank, European titans France and Germany have adopted a new strategy of just agreeing with whatever the U.S. says, in the hopes of limiting the recent successes of President George W. Bush.

Reached at his second home in Camden, New Jersey, French President Jacques Chirac had this to say:

"We considered all the classic tactics: avoidance, codependency, 'tough love'...in the end, passive aggression seemed the natural choice. After all, most things we support tend to come a cropper."

No word yet on whether the Daily Kos will follow suit...
