I really got nothing, folks.


And I wanted to put up some non-political posts today*, too. But, there was… this stuff.

*And to put up, not quite incidentally, some Amazon links, too.

FBI agent investigating Petraeus case sent shirtless pictures of himself to person of interest in case..

…I got nothing, sorry.

The FBI agent who started the case was a friend of Jill Kelley, the Tampa woman who received harassing, anonymous emails that led to the probe, according to officials. Ms. Kelley, a volunteer who organizes social events for military personnel in the Tampa area, complained in May about the emails to a friend who is an FBI agent. That agent referred it to a cyber crimes unit, which opened an investigation.

However, supervisors soon became concerned that the initial agent might have grown obsessed with the matter, and prohibited him from any role in the investigation, according to the officials.

The FBI officials found that he had sent shirtless pictures of himself to Ms. Kelley, according to the people familiar with the probe.


#rsrh Today is the day that the Obama campaign vanquishes me.

I will never be able to parody them as much as they have parodied themselves with this (Via Weasel Zippers, via @davidhauptmann):

Although I no longer feel upset about saying HIT THE TIP JAR OVER THERE ON THE SIDEBAR.  I mean, really: ‘crass’ no longer figures into it.  I could put up pictures of big-eyed, fluffy kittens and I’d still not be anywhere as cynical as… this.

Somewhere, a producer is staring at the computer screen…

…and not believing his luck.

I mean, do we need anything more than the title?

Lingerie model runs one of world’s largest drug gangs, according to police

No. We do not need anything more than the title.

An international arrest warrant has been issued for the 30-year-old, who is suspected of recruiting beautiful women and using them to move drugs to Europe and North America.

Many of these women are believed to be other lingerie and glamour models who compete in international beauty pageants, whom Valencia describes as “unsuspicious, beautiful angels”.

A project to enthusiastically exploit this is being greenlit even as we speak.  It’s either going to be a screwball comedy (in which case they’ll switch out cocaine for something a bit less controversial, like probably diamonds or something), straight action flick (in which case there’ll be a good deal of automatic weapons fire and exploding cars in exotic European locations), or it’ll be a Showtime miniseries (in which case there’s going to be essentially multiple counts of nipple sightings per episode).

Yeah, like you wouldn’t watch any of that.

PS: It’ll show up on Law & Order first, of course; and if recent reports are accurate, it will preemptively suck.
