I know I’ve said this before, but: Nothing Woodward does has ever contradicted the long-standing argument that he’s been an asset of the ‘alphabet agencies’ since his OSS days.
And it’s been very, very profitable for him — even though not for the good of the country.
I hope to Murphy the Trickster God that the Biden admin’s distrust of mudlarking media members extends to keeping this ancient boneless ghoul well away from their deliberations !
It has become an annual tradition for Woodward to hold onto relevant information until the only people paying attention are gossip-obsessed Beltway hyperposters.
Meanwhile all our relatives get waterboarded with insane fringe propaganda that is both instant and free.

Nobody’s credibility survives the dead-eyed Trump supports and right wing media. 600,000 COVID deaths & country’s top infectious disease expert is being called a traitor and worse. Milley would’ve been cast as a “pro-China woke lib” and all of his warnings dismissed.

Well, if nothing else, this is a joyous dance number we can all groove to.
Come on, everybody!
Let’s do the Milley dance!
Dr. Strangelove is a great movie. Its only flaw is that the prevailing sense of optimism has been shown to be unwarranted.

Oh jeeze. Can we knock off the immature schoolyard slurs? Particularly any ostensibly aimed at physical attributes?

I have a tshirt that basically says this.
On the subject of outrage of Milley, hey, isn’t he one of TFG’s generals? Obama didn’t put him in place. Well, OK, he was a general of some sort during the Obama administration, but then again, if he’s served for 40 years then he was commissioned during the Reagan Administration, which makes him the Gipper’s fault.
@Anne Laurie: I ❤️ you Anne Laurie.
Love it when the GQP Rightwing Powertools show the world exactly what weak toady characters they have. It’s really got to chap Milley’s ass that he needs Sleepy Joe Biden to excuse his cowardice in the face of TFG mean tweeting about him to the MSM. Really hard to feel sorry for anyone who fooled themselves into believing they could work for that Orange Shitstain and come out of it with their soul and integrity intact.
Since the thread be open, I have happy news. Minna might be going home tomorrow.
Oh that’s awesome.
I’m so over all of the people who had a duty to warn and kept it quiet so they could make money selling their books.
@Yutsano: That’s amazing news! So glad to hear it. Send her my (all our) best wishes for her continuing recovery.
@Villago Delenda Est: Since you are here, I will pass along a comment from Adam’s Pre-Yom Kippur piece:
Our media needs a Day of Atonement. Followed by 1,000 more.
@Anne Laurie: John been sharing his crabby pills?
@artem1s: Milley’s problems are compounded by his participation, wearing camo uniform, in Trump’s Bible-toting foray last summer. A lot of Democrats wanted his scalp for that one.
I remember reading what seemed a credible source at the time that said Milley was at a function where the uniform was appropriate, then was summoned by Hair Fuhrer to the Church desecration. Didn’t have time to change uniform, so got played for hyping the MAGA meme of “Danger in the Streets!”
@MomSense: @satby: I’ll re-send it in the morning. Right now sleep!
I would love to see the sales figures vs. printings. Every book has smelled like an instant remainder.
@artem1s: If you were career military, and you saw the sort of people Stump usually picked TO DO ANYTHING, if you were reasonably sane, wouldn’t you step into the gap, to keep these other wackaloons from filling it? I would. Not that I would ever be career military, mind you.
@topclimber: I have the impression that that incident woke him up to the kind of danger Trump posed which had to have increased after the election.
So you’re saying that he was an active member of the OSS from birth to the age of 2, when the OSS was dissolved? That’s quite a recruit. Can’t talk, can’t walk, can’t feed himself… they’ll never suspect a thing! So who exactly has been saying he was part of the OSS?

@Leto: He may not show his age like some, but Bob Woodward is actually 134 years old.
@Yutsano: Whee!! Good news indeed!
If I was Biden I’d figure out a way to promote him. Fuck these people.

Pretty sure once you are the Chair of the Joint Chiefs you are currently topped out. 5-stars are designated by an act of Congress, IIRC. There haven’t been any of those since Doug MacArthur got fired.
