Peep the final bullet point from this week’s @Newsweek. With timing like this its a shame its stopping publication. lol #Petraeus

What you don’t even realize is that this is only half of it. That piece on those 12 rules was WRITTEN BY PETRAEUS’S MISTRESS. For real. Look.

Dear Newsweek: When you realized the weirdness of the timing of the Petraeus story mentioned above in relation to the current scandal, what was the reaction in the newsroom? Did people just look bewildered by the fact that you inadvertently became a part of the story, however small?

And the award for best-timed film release goes to … Premiering in Canada today (and the U.S. later this Spring, though they may want to bump that release date up) is a film called “Pink Ribbons, Inc.,” a Canadian film which purports to show the dark side of the Komen for the Cure breast cancer movement along with the “pinkwashing” movement. Seriously. It comes out this weekend in Canada. Of all weekends. So, on top of a PR disaster that strongly damaged their brand is a movie whose release has been planned for months that shows the hypocrisy of said brand. Talk about good timing.

The contemptuous reaction from the House speaker, John Boehner, to the president’s request to address a joint session next Wednesday — the day Congress returns from its summer recess — was appalling. No matter how he feels about Mr. Obama personally or politically, there can be no excuse for his lack of respect for the office, to which he is second in the line of succession. And it was distressing to watch President Obama fail, once again, to stand up to an opposition that won’t brook the smallest compromise.
The New York Times Editorial Board • In a piece titled “Oh, Grow Up,” on the infighting between Obama and Boehner over the timing of the president’s speech on jobs. To put it simply, we’re with them. Especially on this particular point: “Worse, the vital importance of the speech — and the need for Congress to take its full responsibility for creating jobs and reviving the economy — was upstaged by yet another Washington soap opera.” God, it’s like Washington breaks a little more with each passing day. source (viafollow)

As you can see from this calendar right here, the votes planned for September 7, which John Boehner mentioned in his note earlier today, have been listed on this calendar for months. See? Eric Cantor had it in his calendar and everything! How dare Obama screw with their schedule at the last second?!
