To my mind, it all seems like something straight out of .
I mean, no doubt, the disclosure of über-secret information about America's most star-studded intelligence gathering tool (not counting Steven Seagal) is a boon for and their allies who want to harm us—but that's not my biggest concern.

"Obviously a hurricane with a week to go before the election stalled our campaign," Romney told CNN's Gloria Borger. [...]
"I wish the hurricane hadn't happened when it did because it gave the President a chance to be presidential and to be out showing sympathy for folks. That's one of the advantages of incumbency," Romney said. "But you know, you don't look back and worry about each little thing and how could that have been different. You look forward."
Outgoing Rep. Michele Bachmann hinted at a possible return to office.
"I'm not retiring, I'm not going silent, I'm not quitting my public involvement," she said late Thursday night on Fox News' "Hannity." "In fact I may run for another public office. That could happen. But for right now I'm going to find a different perch in order to be able to weigh in on these matters."
While she said she didn't have a specific plan as of now, she is "wide open and looking."
And, speaking of crazy people...
Bachmann's former colleague, Alan West, knows who's to blame for the military's epidemic of sexual assault.
SAVAGE: When I watch these Khmer Rouge feminists try to take over the military, this looked liked an attempted coup to me, Colonel West.
WEST: Nah, you're absolutely right and that's a big concern that I have because when you start to get—you know, I understand civilian oversight of the military. We all understand that as all officers who served in uniform. But when you start to have this interjection of, you know, political, you know, will against, you know, the military, good order and discipline, where you start to try to usurp the commanders' authority and I guess replace it with some type of political, legal officers, and things of that nature. Then the next thing you know, it goes from just dealing with this, you know, sexual assault thing to, you know, making decisions on the battlefield. But —
SAVAGE: Thank you. Exactly. And that's exactly what they're doing here.
WEST: There is an assault against the United States military.
