Late Night: Rhymes with “Betray Us,” But Pat Robertson Says It’s Okay! It’s Who You Know.

By: Tuesday November 13, 2012 8:00 pm

Just so you know, Pat Robertson says it’s okay that Petraeus banged Paula Broadwell because”she’s an extremely good-looking woman…The man’s off in a foreign land and he’s lonely and here’s a good-looking lady throwing herself at him. He’s a man.”

(But of course the four-star crossed lovers didn’t make the beast with two backs until after he joined the CIA. Because adultery in the military is a crime.)

PROPINQUITY! Your Pat Robertson word of the day.

This David Petraeus sex scandal has, as is usually the case, launched thousands of columns claiming to understand intimate details about the mental states of everyone involved, striking moral tones about who can be blamed and what it means for the moral fabric of family life in America, the military, what have you. But the really interesting and important aspect of this story is the degree to which the FBI completely abuses the public trust, apparently for no more a reason than a favor to a friend.

Sunday Late Night: Why Did DiFi Reverse Course on Petraeus Resignation?

By: Sunday November 11, 2012 8:01 pm

Since Dianne Feinstein changed her mind about President Obama accepting the CIA Director’s resignation due to ‘additional complications,’ I wonder if she will tell us which particular ‘additional complications’ led her to reverse course? Was it simply that she looked silly criticizing a president of her own party, appearing out of touch on the intelligence loop? Was it that it was the CIA Director’s supervisor’s idea that he resign? Was it the involvement of partisan leadership of the opposite party in the other house? Or was it the involvement of a State Department employee at JSOC?
