TAMPA — I’m sure Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and other high-ranking elves in the Saul Alinsky administration are doing what they can to cover up their incompetence, lying, and gross political maneuvering re l’affaire Benghazi and their non-response to the radical Muslim war against the West by feeding the media such as General Petraeus, Paula Broadwell, and Jill Kelley.
It will be interesting to see if the mainstream media ever get interested in this story other than the sexual angle, which is the angle our rookie president, soon (thanks to Republican incompetence and dereliction of duty on an operatic scale — see Jed Babbin, “Why Romney Lost”) to be our sophomore president, wishes them to pursue. So far, they’ve risen to the bait.
Speaking of the sexual angle, as I went for my daily neighborhood walk this morning there were about 10 media types, loaded down with camera equipment, lurking in the alley behind the Kelley manse. You could have told they were media types even without the cameras — crappy clothes, poor posture, paunches, bored expressions (though I guess you can’t fault them for this final item, what they were doing looked pretty boring). As I walked past, one of the guys gave me a nod. “It’s a living, right?” I said. “I guess it is,” the nodder replied with a half-hearted smile.
Show of hands of TAS readers who really care how star-struck, if at all, La Kelley is. I thought so. I don’t either.
By the way, all the media types idling in the alley this morning were white males. Isn’t this a hate crime in media land?

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
