All zipper cases are not created equal

David Petraeus’s political future has almost certainly just gone up in a puff of smoke. The cause? Extramarital sex.

While all general officers—and flag officers—are political, big-boy politics ain’t beanbag, nor is it nearly as collegial as the military.

(Consider Colon Colin Powell, a non-zipper case military man who still clearly confirms the military-political Peter Principle. With Powell, the longer he’s out of the public light, the better his legacy.)

Other political zipper cases—Bill Clinton, the Lyin’ Lion of the Senate, his brother, others—haven’t fared as poorly as Petraeus, nor for that matter, are those who have been charged with crimes, such a John Edwards (although Edwards is finally toast).

Yeah, you got your occasional Gary Hart, but it’s strange how it works out, isn’t it?

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
