NutWrench: When she called police about news crews camped out in front of her waterfront mansion, she described herself as an "honorary consul general" and asked for "diplomatic protection."No. Not yours.
qorkfiend: Wouldn't she, as the property owner, be fully within her rights to tell the media to get off her lawn, and to call the police to enforce that?The diplomatic part is absurd, of course, but that'll sort itself out.
AirForceVet: During an interview today on CNN, a retired general mentioned generals have to deal with "camp followers," describing these wome tied up in this scandal as such.According to Wikipedia, camp followers are "civilians and their children who follow armies. There are two common types of camp followers; first, the wives and children of soldiers, who follow their spouse or parent's army from place to place; the second type of camp followers have historically been informal army service providers, servicing soldiers needs whilst encamped, in particular selling goods or services that the military does not supply, these have included cooking, laundering, liquor, nursing, sexual services and sutlery."I say these women are the latter type, but I'm not sure what "services" they're both offering./Just kidding, yes, I do.
