Mark Steyn: Jill Kelley for secretary of state
Orange County Register ^ | Nov 23 | Mark Steyn

Posted on 11/25/2012 6:18:34 AM PST by yinandyang

Morsi now wields total control over Parliament, the Judiciary, and the military to a degree Mubarak in his jail cell can only marvel at. Old CIA wisdom: He may be an SOB but he's our SOB. New post-Arab Spring CIA wisdom: He may be an SOB but at least he's not our SOB.

For awhile they ran a charity, the Doctor Kelley Cancer Foundation, which makes terminal cancer patients' final wishes come true. In 2007, they took in $157,284 in donations, and ran up expenses of $81,927 on dining, entertainment and travel. So, if you've got cancer, and your dying wish is for Jill Kelley to party, this is the charity for you.

In other words, neither of these women passes the smell test. Which is a problem insofar as Petraeus, as CIA Director, is supposed to be head of the national smell test, and Gen. Allen, as Petraeus' successor in Kabul, is supposed to be head of the smell test in Afghanistan.

Love it.

You left out tragic. But I was too busy laughing to weep.

... the government decided it could use more intelligence. Instead, it wound up with more Directors of Intelligence, which is the way it usually goes in Washington.

LOL - nailed it!

Thanks yinandyang. Satire of course.

Jill Kelly seems to be as well qualified as Susan Rice, so why not?

I still have a question about the Jill Kelly "scandal" though. Is General John Allen related to Private John Allen?
Incidentally Amelia Weaver Cochran age 102, Private John Allen's granddaughter died last Tuesday.

As for Afghanistan, it seems a fitting comment on America's longest unwon war that the last two U.S. commanders exit in a Benny Hill finale, trousers round their ankles, pursued to speeded-up chase music by bunny-boiling mistresses, stalker socialites, identical twins and Bubba the Love Sponge.

Nobody can tell it like Mark Steyn!

Jill is the woman Hillary can only dream of being – at the confluence of all the great geostrategic currents of the age. Why didn't we fly Jill Kelley to broker the Gaza deal? Instead of a patsy peddling risible talking-points like Susan Rice, why can't we have Jill Kelley as Secretary of State?

Steyn as usual takes no prisoners.

Why am I becoming increasingly reminded these days of the reign of Tsar Nicholas II?

One can only hope for a similar end in this day. Without the pogroms and the rest of it.

Good to see that Steyn is not one of the idiots making excuses for the disgusting Paula Broadwell.

I just copied that to paste but I see you beat me to it. I'm dying laughing at that....

So, if you've got cancer, and your dying wish is for Jill Kelley to party, this is the charity for you.

Secretary of State?......baloney!......this woman is Presidential material! $15 million in the hole and living in a great house and driving a Mercedes? Think of how she could run this debt-ridden country. Caviar and champagne and Porsches for everyone!

Sure because when I want to understand Middle East policy and politics I will go to a Canadian humorist.

I don’t know if you are a bigot or an idiot. Either way, you don't belong here.
