Look! A Four-Legged Aeroplane!
What's the big story on CNN.com? Rep. Patrick Kennedy, who crashed into a traffic barrier while apparently under the influence of some pills, is going into rehab.
He was stoned, he was wrong, and he needs help... but, ah, CNN? The frickin' head of the frickin' C.I.A.. Just resigned. Suddenly. Under a cloud. No replacement named yet, so it's not part of the big "shake-up".
We don't have a C.I.A. director. And there are going to be hearings for the new one, which I promise you will be an amazing mess.
But you have to focus on the traffic infraction and the drug use of the scion of a storied political family.
THE FUCKIN' HEAD OF THE GODDAMN C.I.A.
Update: Well, after 7:00 EDT they finally made Goss' resignation the lead story at CNN.com, mentioning that there might've been problems with John Negroponte (oh, that's a surprise). Still took 'em frickin' long enough.
