"Less Sex Scandals, More War!"
--Official Tea Party Slogan (Reportedly Spotted on a Bumper Sticker on the 405 Freeway)
Ah, yes! More war, indeed. Far more disturbing than yet another tepid, extramarital sexual escapade committed by a high-ranking U.S. government official is General David Howell Petraeus' love of robot-controlled mass murder as reported recently by Tom Junod of Esquire Magazine. Here's how Junod's article begins:
“I hear that Petraeus likes it,” a source told me. “I hear he likes to be in the room when it happens.”
He wasn’t talking about sex. He was talking to me a good six months before the revelation of the affair between General David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell, and so he wasn’t commenting on Petraeus’s bedroom enthusiasms. He was talking, instead, about killing. He was talking about drones.
