• You Stay Classy McGurk

    In addition to sleazy emails trading sex for access (a two way deal between disgraced Brett “The Stick” McGurk and disgraced Wall Street Journal “journalist” Gina Chon), we add another pack of stained sheets to the pile.

    Sex on the Roof

    I hope no one missed commenter “William” who added to this blog:

    Yes, it is true, he had sex on the roof. Everyone knew it. I was there, not on the roof, but afterwards when everyone was talking about it and he was walking around like cool man on campus.

    He does lack key leadership jobs and it appears his expierience has been handed to him, but he found these positions because people like him and he does a good job. I will give him that – he is likable and does good work. He also has a talent for attracting the ladies.

    Sex at The Yard

    Meanwhile in sleaze land, the Washington Post reports that McGurk invited his then-mistress Chon to be a guest lecturer at a Harvard course he taught in 2009. Harvard students attending the class had no idea that their teacher was romantically involved with Chon, who spoke to them about her experience reporting getting inside info by sleeping with her sources in Iraq, according to a student who attended.

    (Sigh) Needless to say, both the Stickman and Chon were married to others when they arranged to have Harvard pay for Chon to spend some quality time with Brett on the university’s dime. Another classy move McGurk!

    No one at State was working on a warm Friday afternoon to comment on whether McGurk’s actions constitute the same “notorisouly disgraceful conduct” it beats off on its own employees for doing.

      Caught between Iraq and a “hard” place, what’s the difference?

      1. Stud McGurk is caught on camera exposing himself to an adult female on the embassy roof and State supports him.

      2. Scott Ritter is caught on camera exposing himself to an adult male and the State “supports” him.

      The difference is the guy who opposed the mass murder of thousands of Iraqi men, women and children is deemed the criminal.

      Obviously, everyone has forgotten the fact that the State Department has a specific rooftop waiver for heterosexual sex with with another State employee in Iraq. McGurk falls squarely within this exception.

      Speaking of bad ambassadorial nominations, CA PDAS Kirby has been nominated to be ambassador to Serbia. Someone needs to check out his role in hiring fired CA Assistant Secretary Maura Harty’s husband to the Front Office.

      Most apposite line in that song (“Up On The Roof”):

      “When I come home feeling tired, and beat”

      Rich B…..Stop going msnbc on us. I hadn’t heard about Ritter’s dueling dildos with the male but I do know that Ritter was nailed at least twice e-banging 13 year old girls. His first escapade was swept under the rug but it was well known in some circles. His second round with a kid on the internet was his demise. After that was made known, Ritter was also exposed as nothing more than a perv who was a paid lobbyist for sadam hussein’s crew. His credibility had been in question for some time before his creepy “e-dates” with kids were found out. After that his whole persona was “shot”. Good riddance.
