News breaking out all over. I hope Gen. Petraeus is well-rested.

He needs a clone.

How far we’ve come from the MoveOn/General Betray Us heydays, eh?

Next gig for McChrystal…Columnist for Rolling Stone? Celebrity MTV tweeter? Milblogger?

Here’s the AP:

A senior administration official tells The Associated Press that President Barack Obama has accepted Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s resignation as the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan and is replacing him with Gen. David Petraeus, head of U.S. Central Command.

McChrystal was pushed out over his blistering remarks about administration officials quoted in a magazine interview.

After an Oval Office meeting with McChrystal in the morning, Obama huddled with his war advisers and planned to announce his decision on the general’s fate to the nation at 1:30 p.m. EDT in the Rose Garden.

B-b-b-b-but didn’t Obama say a vote for his opponent would be a vote for four more years of Bush?

Another Emily Litella moment.
