I think we've reached the Boat Point of this story, which is the point at which the entire thing has become so ridiculous that the only rational solution remaining is to gather everyone even tangentially involved, put them on a boat, sail it out into the middle of the Pacific, and sink it. Sink it deep.

It really is amazing how much shiat can go down when a dude tries to get some tang. Ladies, that's how amazing your pussy is. One just wrecked a general and we're still going to come back for more.

She sounds like most of the country club Republicans I know: living spectacularly beyond their means, up to their ears in debt, marital infidelity is the norm, and willing to do almost anything to keep up appearances. Permeating all of this is the attitude that they are better than the unwashed lower classes (even though their net worth is less than most people on welfare) and that the rules that apply to everyone else do not apply to them. To hobnob with public figure of note, a general or a politician is like a wet dream, a confirmation of the fantasy that they are someone.

Losers, all of them.

Petraeus should have known better than to get mixed up in all of that.

According to the NYT, Jill and Scott Kelly treated the military guys to a lavish lifestyle, running up a huge debt in the process....

"The Kelleys were known for their lavish parties, with extravagant buffets, flowing Champagne, valet parking and cigars for guests from nearby MacDill Air Force Base"

"Records show that Ms. Kelley and her husband, a doctor, have been subject to a string of lawsuits over debts, according to a report in The Tampa Bay Times, which said the Kelleys owed a bank nearly $2.2 million, including attorney fees, on a building they own. They also ran a cancer charity, which appears to be defunct. A 2007 tax filing, the latest available, shows the charity raised $157,284 that year, but spent just $58,417 on program services..."

I interact with a fair amount of these people when representing them in divorce matters. The "living beyond their means" statement is very true. The majority of them live in great fear of the general public finding out how much money they don't have. That is the main reason why they have their divorce decrees sealed from public view (when most of us would do the same for privacy issues or to protect sensitive financial information.) Just a thought.

I don't have a violin small enough for these two.

The CIA wants to read my e-mail without a warrant but gets upset when their director gets caught having affairs via e-mail.

It's also hard for me to feel bad about a biatch being crazy getting busted by drawing attention to herself.

I'm STILL trying to figure out how this basic nobody managed to not only land a book contract but one that included the services of a ghost-writer. If you are a famous name and a publisher wants you to "write" a book, a ghost is almost a given. But what made Broadwell's name so worth having on the cover of "All in" that she got the cash for a book someone else wrote? Why not have had the ghost as the actual author? Something tells me Petraeus wasn;t the first famous and powerful man she slept with to get what she wanted.

I_C_Weener: And yet I can't get Top Secret clearance.


Exactly this.

I got all altruistic the other day after watching the hurricane cleanup and went over to USAJOBS to surf around. I found a motor vehicle operator job at FEMA that required the candidate to be able to perform janitorial skills, paid something like $17 bucks an hour, and required a Top Secret clearance.
Very funny and just another reason we're farked.

/I won't ever qualify for a clearance for various reasons, not the least of which is that I'm not an authoritarian follower.
 
2012-11-14 12:10:29 PM
Crazy narcissistic biatch, and probably so is Broadwell. You'd think that highly ranked military guys would have some training in avoiding people like this, but oh no, psychology is bullshiat--they're generals and they control the world. They have the weapons of mass destruction and the power to use them.

Well, they both just got a lesson in those little weapons of mass destruction--crazy people. Ruining everything, one person at a time. And then they (usually) just walk away.

/Why yes, I do have some trust issues

From what I understand Patreaus wasn't well liked at the CIA, so I don't think they are "upset" that he got caught.

One of the late night hosts actually had a joke about not having an affair when the spies you manage don't like you.

While the origins of the seed money used to start the charity in 2007 are unclear, financial records reviewed by The Huffington Post reveal that the group spent all of its money not on research, but on parties, entertainment, travel and attorney fees.

Organized charities are what bored, rich women use to fund their social whirl.

Almost none of it ever goes to the needy.

You wanna help? See who needs help, find those motherf*ckers and hand them the sammiches, blankets and money in person. The odds of any other method working are slim.
