I'm starting to think there's a real problem with straights in the military.

Washington Post

According to a senior U.S. defense official, the FBI had uncovered between 20,000 and 30,000 "potentially inappropriate" pages of communication between Allen and Kelley, Petraeus's alleged other other woman and the subject of the shirtless FBI agent's affection.

Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta released a statement early this morning, saying Allen will retain his position for now.

"While the matter is under investigation and before the facts are determined, General Allen will remain commander of ISAF," Panetta said, referring to the NATO-led force in Afghanistan.

However, Panetta did ask the Senate to hurry proceedings to appoint Allen's likely successor, Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford.

But back to all those emails. Reportedly, they were all sent between 2010 and 2012, although it's not clear if they were ongoing or if they stopped earlier this year.

Before this thing is over, the FBI will literally have binders full of women.

Huffington Post



Former GOP vice-presidential nominee and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is blaming President Barack Obama's win on his turnout in cities.

In one of a series of first interviews following the loss by Ryan and Mitt Romney last Tuesday, Ryan told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, "Well, he got turnout. The president should get credit for achieving record-breaking turnout numbers from urban areas for the most part, and that did win the election for him." Ryan repeated the line to local station WISC-TV.

But Politico's James Hohmann notes that the Romney-Ryan ticket also lost predominately white and rural states like Iowa and New Hampshire, and underperformed in Midwestern states.




Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal hurled harsh criticism at his own party after the GOP was blindsided in the 2012 elections, telling Republicans to end "dumbed-down conservatism" by putting a stop to "offensive, bizarre" comments.

“It is no secret we had a number of Republicans damage our brand this year with offensive, bizarre comments -- enough of that,” Jindal told Politico. “It’s not going to be the last time anyone says something stupid within our party, but it can’t be tolerated within our party. We’ve also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.”

Jindal told Politico Republicans should “stop being the stupid party” by working to embrace a larger group of constituents rather than becoming the party of "big anything."

The GOP governor criticized the idea that the GOP is "the party that simply protects the rich." Jindal even took a jab at Mitt Romney's now-infamous "47 percent" remarks, noting Republicans would have to be more inclusive going forward.

“The Republican Party is going to fight for every single vote,” he said. “That means the 47 percent and the 53 percent, that means any other combination of numbers going up to 100 percent.”

That's quite a bit of biased reporting "blaming President Barack Obama's win on his turnout in cities". To be fair, Ryan gives Obama credit for achieving the urban turnout, not 'blaming' it on his loss.

I like this quote, from the same article:
"We've got to make sure that we are not the party of big business, big banks, big Wall Street bailouts, big corporate loopholes, big anything. We cannot be, we must not be, the party that simply protects the rich so they get to keep their toys."

I am really disappointed they did not change Vernon's last name to Lube.

Heeeeeeey, good comments here, Jindal! This is what I want to hear more of from the GOP.

The beginnings of Jindal 2016 start in denunciation of the party that was slayed by Barack Obama in 2012.

A good thing.
