Fifty Shades of Khaki

The farcical epic of General David Petraeus

....You didn’t need special insider’s access to know that Broadwell wasn’t the only one with whom the general did calisthenics. The FBI didn’t need to investigate. Even before she came on the scene, scads of columnists, pundits, reporters, and politicians were in bed with him. And weirdly enough, many of them still are.(Typical was NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams mournfully discussing the “painful” resignation of “Dave”–“the most prominent and best known general of the modern era.”) Adoring media people treated him like the next military Messiah, a combination of Alexander the Great, Napoleon, and Ulysses S. Grant rolled into one fabulous pińata. It’s a safe bet that no general of our era, perhaps of any American era, has had so many glowing adjectives attached to his name.

Perhaps Petraeus’s single most insightful moment, capturing both the tragedy and the farce to come, occurred during the 2003 invasion of Iraq. He was commanding the 101st Airborne on its drive to Baghdad, and even then was inviting reporters to spend time with him. At some point, he said to journalist Rick Atkinson,“Tell me how this ends.” Now, of course, we know: in farce and not well.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articl...

....think of the Petraeus version of collapse as a tryout for the fall of the American empire, writ very small, with Jill Kelley and Paula Broadwell as our Gibbons and the volume of email, including military sexting, taking the place of his six volumes. A poster general for American decline, David Petraeus will be a footnote to history, a man out for himself who simply went a bridge or a book too far. George W. and crew were the real thing: genuine mad visionaries who simply mistook their dreams and fantasies for reality.

But wasn’t it fun while it lasted? Wasn’t it a blast to occupy Washington, be treated as a demi-god, go to Pirate-themed parties in Tampa with a 28-motorcycle police escort, and direct your own biography… even if it did end as Fifty Shades of Khaki?

Duh!!

The average life expectancy of Americans jumped 2.7 years after news broke on Friday that Hostess Brands will close operations.

The Food and Drug Administration, along with the U.S. Census Bureau, released a report on Friday showing that life expectancy futures in the U.S. rose to 81.9 years, up from 78.2 on the announcement that Hostess will end its production of such carb coma-inducing baked goods as Twinkies,“Fruit” Pies, donettes and Ho Hos.

After-hours trading on Friday did see life expectancy figures drop back down below the 81-year level as the American public made a run on grocery stores and gas stations to buy up the millions of Hostess treats currently on the shelves. But experts believe that number will recover by Monday as America gets past its Twinkie-fueled weekend sugar rush.

Should a Jewish check-out person at the grocery store be allowed to refuse to sell pork products and shellfish?
Same exact thing.
Dear Sister,
Why is it that you understand this and they don't?

Dean Chambers, the founder of UnSkewedPolls.com , launched a new website last week alleging that President Barack Obama did not legitimately carry Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Florida, but instead won those states thanks to voter fraud.

The unskewed thing was a bust, so let's take a shot at more failure.

King is one of the lyingest, loudmouthed, partisan priks in congress!

If you had any balls you would start with Capitol Hill, but, being a sexless automaton, that excuses you from participation. How convenient for you that your every breath is predetermined.

You so warm/happy/fuzzy!

Must have voted for obamma, talking about withholding meds like you do!

Is THIS the "tolerant" left???

You talk, talk, talk a good game, but you are just little kids, ready to lash out in a dangerous way against people who disagree with you!

Real "inclusive" of you.
