Mazel Tov to retired Gen. David Petraeus, the recently resigned CIA director, and Gen. John R. Allen for proving to the world that even high-ranking military men have urges.
Macho is not reserved for mere politicians. Women are attracted to power...duh! Of course, we all remember John F. Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe. Many may even remember his dalliance with teen intern Mimi Beardsley or his sex-in-a-closet escapade with burlesque stripper Blaze Star (38DD).
Bill Clinton and his duo, Monica Lewinsky and Gennifer Flowers, took weeks away from governing. Luckily, George H.W. Bush somehow managed to keep Jennifer Fitzgerald from hitting the headlines. Kudos to the Republicans for that one.
We all learned about Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings. George Washington fathered a boy with his mistress, Venus Ford, who he stopped sleeping with once he learned she was knocked up, but he did send money. Grover Cleveland also fathered a child—but not with his wife—somewhere around 1880.
Franklin D. Roosevelt got it on with Lucy Mercer, his personal secretary, around 1913. Why can’t our new generals have balls like Eisenhower did? Big D flaunted his fashion model mistress, Kay Summersby Morgan, without remorse.
The Brits seems more evolved than we are, keeping politics to the politicians and letting their royals marry mistresses: Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. We will never be sure if the Vera Baker/Barack Obama affair is gossip or not, but, please, let’s let our president, our generals and our politicians from both parties finish their work and get something accomplished.
