Okay, actually it's not, but while it's going on there is an attempt to undermine it.
What do I mean?
Well, I wanted to watch "Meet The Press" for the first time in years but I couldn't.
I'm watching "Morning Joe" and am not bathing in schadenfreude as I should be.
David Gregory, in lieu of talking about the most significant political realignment since 1980, was talking about Petraeus and Bengahzi.
Joe is on TV accusing the White House of a cover-up.
While I do not want the celebration to end I think it would behoove the community to get in front of this bullshit. The momentum of a great victory can be halted if the casual conversations at the water cooler etc can't be rebutted concisely.
Here's what I gather so far:
Some chic in Florida was getting threatening emails from Paula Broadwell.
Her friend is an FBI agent. He investigated as far as discovering Broadwell's connection to Petraeus but it didn't compromise him in anyway as Director of the CIA.
Here it gets tricky.
Apparently this seemed to mean to the FBI that the case was closed and they reprimanded the friend of the first woman - the FBI agent in Florida - for misusing his position.
That agent - again, apparently - contacted Republican congress people he knew.
From there I don't know, but the implication from my point of view is that this agent was a partisan Republican and was annoyed that he'd stumbled on political gold for Romney, even if it was substantively irrelevant.
The grand result for all the slobbering fools like Scarborough is that he can get on TV and say "You're going to stand there and tell me the President - The President! - didn't know anything about this?!" (Now lying) "This has been swirling around D.C. for weeks now and the President had no idea?!"
These schmucks like Gregory and Scarborough are begging for a way to put a lid on the Democratic victory story and the GOP civil war story and they're pulling at any and every thread to make this "The Most Important Thing In The World!"
There's some professional scale concern trolling going on and that works a twisted game. Imagine "Meet The Press" spending an hour on this bullshit on the first show after such a pertinent election.
And you know how it works. Really Schumer should just say, "these are some bullshit questions David, now let's talk about that Ass-whupping last Tuesday!" But of course then they can be concerned, "Oh so you don't care about the security of of America?"
There's bullshit going on right now and it pisses me off. I don't know what to do about it.
