#1 But it'd be OK if he'd done it with a goat.

#2 "Ghost?" Oh, pardon me. I thought you said "goat".

#3 Obama has assured Americans the affair has not compromised national security.

It HAS compromised national security if in no other way than motivating thousands of our best soldiers to not re-enlist.

#4 They think it's funny it doesn't involve a pubescent boy.

#5 As many of you, I just watched the Fox News, Representative Pete King interview. Patreaus was not sworn in. Neither Petreaus or his Klingon minder bothered to bring along the original Agency talking points or PPT. They only opined that the talking points were changed during the...."Interagency Process". King was dismissive and could not identify the Interagency Process members and went on to refer to Patreaus as an "old friend" (of 9 years), hero warrior yada, yada, yada... and without saying as much, an unfortunate victim. In my view, King did not display a comfortable level body language during the interview, refused to address a couple of points, and appeared to know considerably more than he was saying. A made-for-media briefing event and a gross waste of time.

Bottom line: These foks know the real deal (have been briefed) and are clamming shut, going through the media motions! I will always believe Willard was told not to bring it up during the election as well.

Similar thoughts here.

#8 "From a Pashtun point of view, Petraeus should be shot by relatives from his mistress's family," the Taliban official explained.
"From a Shariah point of view, he should be stoned to death."


Typical Taliban, always trying to make things complicated. Why not compromise and get his mistress's relatives to shoot him while he is being stoned him to death?
Sheesh
