The Other McCain has some fun with the Petraeus affair (no pun intended).
Keep in mind that Paula Broadwell is a West Point graduate who met Petraeus when she was getting a graduate degree at Harvard and yet — and yet — she was so stupidly jealous that she accidentally destroyed Petraeus’s career because of her irrational (and apparently mistaken) suspicion that the CIA director was also shagging the “social liaison” at CentCom HQ in Tampa.
Remind me of this episode the next time some Ivy League egghead starts asserting the inherent superiority of the meritocratic elite.
I’ve seen pictures of Paula Broadwell, which makes the whole thing even more incomprehensible. ‘Why, Richard, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world… but for Wales?’
