Washington AC/DC - (Ass Mess): As he wakes to the dulcet tones of the DC dawn chorus in the palatial comfort zone of his White House hospitality suite UK Prime Monster Tony Blair is confident his host George Bush has managed to talk World Bank nepotist Paul Wolfowitz into a face saving sweetheart deal that will see him resign from the World Bank and hand over the reins to his Whore on Terra buddy.
Despite months of wrangling, pleading, cajoling, threatening, blackmailing and calling in every conceivable IOU Wolfowitz's fate is bleak after being corralled into a career-best snake pit over overpaying a World Bank hooker for services rendered.
And in a further twist to the on-going saga indicted DC madam Deborah Jeane Palfrey is threatening to release evidence showing she received her agency 'introduction fee' over Wolfowitz's squeeze Shaha Rizla's World Bank and State Department appointments where Wolfowitz guaranteed her remuneration would be stratospheric.
Palfrey has also hinted she has videotaped evidence showing that Wolfowitz's girlfriend was previously contracted to VECO, the Alaskan oil services company whose CEO and Veep have just turned in plea bargains over corruption and embezzlement in the Alaskan energy industry.
Meanwhile Wolfowitz's attorney has advised that outing himself as a Corrupt Bastards Club elder is probably not the best way forward to securing a World Bank severance payment that at least would guarantee being able to pay his legal bills.
A Bush-Blair press conference is to take place later today outlining the finer points of the tense discussions.
