Down in Tampa, where we have our Central Command, there was this glorified gypsie grifter named Jill Kelly, whos part Kardashian, part Palin, and part Snooki, who was hanging around the military bases. The media calls her a Tampa socialite. What is that really? Someone who goes to Applebees and orders the filet? So she starts getting these anonymous threatening emails from someone of course it turned out to be Paula Broadwell telling her to stay away from my general. Because if theres one thing a mistress hates, its a guy who cheats.
This is why I agree with the gays when they say we should not allow heterosexuals in the military.
The best part of this is the politics of it. Jill Kelly is a Republican. General Petraeus, thats the guy Republicans wanted to run for president. Paula Broadwell, they wanted to run her for Senate on the Republican side. This whole scandal happened because Jill Kelly was flirting with a super-partisan right-winger FBI agent, who took the emails to his Republican congressman, who took them to House Majority Leader Republican Eric Cantor. You know who I blame? Obama.
