|The news is filled with stories of an FBI agent sending shirtless pictures of himself via email to a Tampa area unpaid social liason hottie hostess, who eventually complained to him that she was receiving jr high class accusatory emails from a skinny assed West Point/Ivy Leager authoress who was apparently humping the head of the CIA, her jogging-fuck-buddy, sometimes West Pointer, sometimes Princeton alum, sometimes most celebrated military leader of the modern era, the subject of the biography she wrote, "All In", satirized on SNL as "Not Just The Tip." Meanwhile, the general who took over for the head of the CIA in Afghanistan has now been linked via inappropriate emails to the Tampa area unpaid social liason hottie hostess, and the FBI is now examining over 30,000 pages of documents related to this deep matter.|
I know, just speaking for me, that this isn't a distraction in the least. I'm going to say what everyone in America is thinking, that I've seen those pictures of the general's wife, and immediately declared the man 'Not Guilty, and eligible for combat pay.' That conclusion took 20 milliseconds, but why the -official- investigation of this nonsense in an age when we are supposedly under real threats should take over six months and miraculously be announced the day after the election is a coincidence that we all will just have to accept, while Diane Feinstein leads the Senate post-election cover-up of Libya. I mean, investigation, which, oh by the way, now might not include testimony by the former head of the CIA, who fell on his own sword, so to speak.
I mention it here only because I must ask the question; is there ever a moment in this constant circus of mirth when we ask ourselves, is this a set of tribal leaders we can be proud to support with the residue of our lives? I'm not talking about poor Obama, who just won the race for Captain of the Titanic. I'm talking about the entire machinery of state, the whole farrago of professional elites who hang around Army bases and act as unpaid social liasons, those who make it through the FBI and punch the clock on the way to their public pensions, those on their way up the ladder to GS-15 and beyond. The media elites who circle this mess and make their living feeding and defending it.
The entire massive mess looks and acts like an asshole magnet, a giant black hole of the very worst in America, because of its nature, which is ultimately, riding on the backs of others, including, taking credit for the sacrifices of all the E1s who show up, serve the nation, and leave and never join that assembly line to a mansion in the DC burbs.
