Maybe if HuffPo posted more articles that weren't garbage filler, they would attract smarter people to the site instead of the nutjobs the site seems to attract in droves. I read HuffPo at work on my breaks and for every decent article there is its separated by 3 or 4 padded articles that take one or two sentences and just stretch them out into 20 paragraphs.

How is this insightful?!

Yeah! Nothing wrong with using women for the sole purpose of being stared at like the objects they're showing off. ... really?

For crying out loud, women are not blow up dolls to be paraded around like show animals.

Now, let me get this straight, I don't doubt for a second any of these women are anything less than professional and may even enjoy their job. That's fine, I'm not going to hold somebody's job against them and I certainly don't expect every woman to be a feminist.

But, in general as a society, we can respect women enough that we don't have to use them as sex objects and walking billboards. As a man, you should hold yourself to a better standard of creature than one driven by his carnal instincts. Nobody likes being leered at, so why would you condone it anywhere?

Considering what kinds of ethically and legally questionable stuff the CIA does as part of it's day-to-day operations, this is what it takes to get fired? Maybe he got fired for getting caught. If an intelligence spook can't cover up something as basic as an affair up then he probably shouldn't be running an entire intelligence agency.

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
