Hell hath no fury like a mistress scorned. So seriously, you guys, stop having affairs. If you are a fictional character in a popular 1987 film starring Glenn Close, then your mistress will boil your childs bunny rabbit and then youll have to kill her in your own bathtub. Nobody wants that.
If youre a real person with a respected military career and a high-powered position say, the director of the CIA your mistress will send threatening e-mails to your rumored other other woman and then youll be forced to resign in disgrace. Nobody wants that, either!
Fortunately for the everyday layperson, we get the opportunity to sit back and watch this all unfold like a Lifetime movie or a particularly unrealistic episode of Homeland. That means this will dominate the news cycle for at least the next week, and the most creative of news outlets (us) will squeeze every last pun out of the situation that they (we) can.

But its not, so we wont.

Ah, Mistake in first comment. These are US tabloids.
I love it when they reap their just rewards. Here, the justice of it is delicious. They both deserved what they got. Their families, however, are devastated.
Given that this is all about a ploy to prevent testifying before Congress about the Benghazi affair, it is just as likely that Petraeus didn’t shag as that he did. It is the narrative that needs to make sense. I cheated. I confessed. I must do penance by resigning. Therefore, I’m unavailable to be sworn in before Congress.
If that doesn’t seem fishy to America, then America is just stupid.
It is not about him poking her, it is about the confidential info he gave a crazy person
