Hat tip: Wall Street Journal
The Bitsblog Slut of the Day is Paula Broadwell.

And I thought liberals liked sluts. Being a slut has been celebrated The slut Sandra Fluke was paraded all over the country, and held out as an icon. So why has the Obama administration fired David Petraeus for carnal knowledge with a slut.
eax:  RS McCain:

Let’s just go ahead and get this out of the way, eh? Aren’t feminists who embrace the “slut” label (e.g., “Slutwalk“) all about empowerment and liberation? And if you are an empowered liberated woman, what difference does it make if you’re married or your partner is married? All those silly vows — “Forsaking all others” and so forth — are just oppressive tools by which the patriarchy subjugates women, and anyone who buys into moral ideals of marital permanence and lifelong fidelity has succumbed to what the Marxists would call “false consciousness.”

When  I read of Broadwells bio, I thought of her a maybe a real life Emma Peel.   No such thing.   Mrs. Peel had class.

More, Wall Street Journal:

Multiple officials familiar with the investigation identified the other woman as Paula Broadwell, a West Point graduate and the author of a biography on Petraeus titled “All In: The Education of General David Petraeus.” Her representatives have yet to comment to the Journal. You can read the Journal’s story here.

Broadwell is familiar to viewers of “The Daily Show.” She appeared on the program in January–along with her husband–and participated in a push-up contest against host Jon Stewart for charity.

So did the Obama administration even vet David Petraeus, or how did the once competent FBI miss this affair?

 

Addendum: (Eric) I add my comments about this whole thing, here.
