“I don’t go around in my personal life pretending to be one thing and being something else.” Of course you don’t dear. You’re a war-mongering cunt and everyone knows it.

Well almost everyone.

“CBS News’ newly minted chief foreign affairs correspondent is now the inspiration for several bad tabloid puns of “and speaking about foreign affairs…” A Texas woman has accused her of wrecking the woman’s marriage. Kimberly Burkett claims that Logan seduced her husband Joe, a civilian contractor, while the two were in Baghdad. A friend of Logan’s tells the Post that the Burketts’ marriage was kaput six months before Joe Burkett even met Logan.”

So nice when you can have a “friend” rush to your defense.

Without attribution.

“The Post makes this story the focus of the front page, with a puntastic “SEXTY MINUTES” banner headline. (Logan is a correspondent for 60 Minutes.) The Daily News covers the story using a different angle, choosing to focus on the media aspects. The piece asserts that it’s strange that Logan got promoted in the past week or so in light of this scandal and the fact that she excoriated her bosses on national television just last week.”

Fascinating that she excoriates her bosses. Nary a discouraging word about the mass murderer for hire she’s fucking.

“Logan appeared on The Daily Show June 18 and expressed her frustration with her inability to get her stories from Baghdad and Afghanistan on the air. She even went so far as to say she’d “blow [her] brains out” if she had to watch American news”

And Jon, being the sucker for a pretty face and melifluous voice that he is, was duly impressed as she poured on the banana oil.

The headline, “CBS beauty in boss bash, sex flap is … promoted.” The News also notes that “Logan has a reputation for bravery developed by reporting stories under fire and risking her life—she sneaked into Baghdad five days before U.S. troops got there in 2003—but has also been dogged by grumbles she uses her good looks to get ahead.”
And that’s the rub, isn’t it? Lara Logan is hot, and now she’s embroiled in one of those fluff stories that has her reaching for a revolver.”

Actually Joe Burkett’s the one who’s really armed. And with far more than a revolver. As for Lara, my favorite gigolo, Luke Ford, pays her the proper respect her true profession merits.

“Will this ultimately bring more attention to her coverage of both wars? Probably not, since this flap will fade away and there still will be a dearth of robust war coverage on the evening news.”

True. That’s why Hastings saw an opening (no, not “Lara’s opening) and delivered one of the best pieces Rolling Stone has ever published.

Lara and her lover, meanwhile – being heterosexual — were found themselves capable of magically transofrming adultery into Marriage and Family. Will it last? Well Lara does have a roving eye, doesn’t she? After all, at the time she hooked up with Burkett she was also involved with CNN reporter Michael Ware

Hubba-Hubba.

And now in tribute to Lara “Is That a Weapon of Mass Destruction in Your Pocket or Are You Just Glad To See Me?” Logan, The Most Exciting Woman in the World( quote Orson Welles unquote) will sing us out
