    CIA Director Resigns

    Fox just broke the news that David Petraeus has turned in his letter of resignation. There's gotta be a big story here somewhere...

    CIA director Petraeus resigns over affair

    Literally breaking news so no link yet, but it's on CNN. Wow. What an idiot.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    What I'm hearing is that he's being made the fall guy for Benghazi. Maybe Obama's trying get Hillary back?

    Wow, because of an extramartial affair? Not sure what is the scariest about that. That the head of the frickin' CIA couldn't keep an affair secret or that they think we're so stupid as to buy that reason.

    No, he admitted to an extramarital affair ... which is obviously a huge problem for the chief of the CIA. Presumably it was going to come out and he decided to head it off.

    Let me get a clock on that....

    Yep, four minutes for the first conspiracy theory to be hatched.
