The General Petraeus Reality Show continues to delight us with low behavior in high places. Peaches, as the General was known to his girlfriend, apparently tried to intervene in the custody battle of some woman who was related to someone in military hospitality circles. An FBI agent investigating this nonsense sent a topless photo of himself to the woman who complained about Petraeus’s girlfriends nasty e-mails (did Anthony Weiner get a job in the FBI?) Another high-ranking apparently sent racy e-mails of his own to another player in this mess.
Maybe we should replace the Joint Chiefs at the Pentagon with the Kardashian family so we can regain a little national dignity.
Here is my thought – let us put Petraeus and the sex circus in the gossip pages where they belong, and let us put the real moral question of what we are still doing in Afghanistan on the front page instead.
