Greta Van Susteren announced last night that Jill Kelley's sister has retained the services of attorney Gloria Allred. Jill Kelley, you may recall is the woman who received the allegedly harassing emails from General David Petraeus' mistress, thus triggering the investigation that led to his resignation. Although Van Susteren had no problem focusing on such trifles as Anthony Weiner's sexting, now she fretted that these latest developments would "take away" from Benghazi. What Van Susteren really means is that it may distract from helping Republicans use that tragedy to attack the Obama administration.
After wondering if Allred was causing "just a side show," Van Susteren said:
She's a wild card... The thing that I think is particularly damaging is that she tends to take it away from Benghazi. There's a genuine inquiry, lots of questions and, you know, to the extent that we're not talking Benghazi. I mean that nobody is.
That's right, Gloria Allred might take away from Fox's ability to ignore Condoleezza Rice's assessment and wildly speculate ahead of an official investigation for the sake of smearing the Obama administration.
Signed by the turkey that was pardoned by Obama according to Allisyn Camerota on F&F 20 november. For reasons I (shall pretend to) ignore, her voice was dripping with some sort of negative meaning.
Not a one of them has bothered to mention what would have happened had Broadwell (and Kelley and heavens only know how many others) not been a military groupie but rather a spy for any one of the many categories that the foxies, themselves, keep on saying “hate America”.
The “scandal” is not about adultery or sex, but rather about how easy it was for a pretty woman to wrap a powerful man around her little finger. Where have the foxies been the last couple of thousand years, anyway?
Some of them are old enough to have seen the first James Bond movies where the lovely lady was almost always a vicious spy for the other side. The meme has, however, been around since ancient Roman times (at least).
Instead of focusing on the truly serious implications of the Petraeus affair (i.e. powerful men so susceptible to seduction), the foxies are fearful that it will draw attention away from a minor incident (compared, say, to the almost 3,000 deaths of 9/11 and the over 4,000 deaths of the wars in Iraq and Afganistan) that their own powers-on-high have decided to use to discredit the current administration.
Van Susteren’s preoccupations are filed under “grasping at straws”.
