“McChrystal's defenders at the Pentagon were making the case Tuesday that the president and his men—(the McChrystal snipers spared Hillary)—must put aside their hurt feelings about being painted as weak sisters.

I mean if she were a little bolder more resourceful and confident she and Adam might've had snake for dinner instead.”
Linda Robertson
