2. She'll sell a million books. All to white

Republican older males. The religious right is wrong about where the porn is that threatens their flock. It's in Republican politics. And white male GOPers flock to these women like early man did to fertility godesses.

3. The rest of the skunks!


A STRATEGIST David H. Petraeus, left, the Army general and former C.I.A. chief, has hired Robert B. Barnett, whose client list includes the last three presidents.

A MEDIA SPECIALIST Paula Broadwell, left, Mr. Petraeus’s biographer and lover, has turned to Bill Clinton’s former White House press secretary, Dee Dee Myers.

TWO ON THE TEAM Jill Kelley, left, whose complaints about anonymous e-mails set off the scandal, is represented by both Abbe D. Lowell, a top Washington defense lawyer, and Judy Smith, a self-described “crisis management expert.”

NOT ALONE Gen. John R. Allen is relying on the military for legal and other help.

8. Love Pentagon sounds appropriate for a general

as opposed to a Love Triangle.

11. Yeah. The twin sister's role is probably very telling

Evidently Jill Kelly got the absolute apex of military brass, General Petraeus and General Allen to testify about what a great mother her twin sister was when she was fighting for the custody of her kids. It really makes you wonder how Jill Kelly manages to pull that off. It also seem the twin sister isn't very stable, which puts the question about her mothering in an interesting light.

12. Agree - that's one HELL of relationship if you can drag two top generals into a civil dispute...

Im surprised they are even allowed to give testimony on such matters...

13. Judy Smith

The self described "crisis management expert" is the person the television show 'Scandals' -- starring Kerri Washington, is based on. Apparently, she has helped to' move' people such as Monica Lewinski, Michael Vick, Mark Sandford and, according to he Wiki page, "governments and corporations at all levels" from crisis mode to non-crisis mode, or whatever they call it. She also appeared on the Daily Show to talk about her work.

Personally, I had never heard of her before the television series. But let's see how she and the other team members handle Natalie Khawam.
