Comments: The Reverse Prince Charles Effect

I think most people, male and female alike, can rationalize a dalliance if the object of that dalliance is attractive. Putting oneself in those shoes brings an understanding of how the perp could have done it.

Howie Carr has a funny shtick when a woman is in trouble, upon assessment of her physical attributes, whether she is guilty or not guilty of the accusations. Guilty being a dog; not guilty being a babe.

I agree that Paula Shagwell is a babe and it would be hard to imagine that being alone and half way around the world with all of the power and luxury afforded to a guy like Petraeus that something would not develop. What I found semi-creepy was her description of the sixty year old man being a ‘magnificent physical specimen’. Not sure if that reference is to a man who keeps himself in top physical condition or other more genetic attributes.

I just don't think this Paula is that good looking, but I seem to be in the minority. Jill Kelly doesn't do much for me either. Different strokes, I guess.

I see, more of a Dana Plato man, eh?

And btw, what's wrong with Dana Plato? Getting past that criminal thing, and the fact that she's now dead, she was hot. Hot chick with an element of danger. What's not to like? I miss the 80's.

Loved the 80's. Crazy uncomplicated women looking to equal or dial up what men like. Last decade of truly original and creative music. Didn't watch much network TV (still don't) so had to look Dana Plato up. Sad. Did I mention the drugs in the 80's?

Nothing is wrong (other than all that shit that was wrong) with Dana Plato.
