It’s hard to understand why some people do what they do. Take General Stanley McChrystal, commander of coalition forces in Afghanistan. He talks to a reporter from the Rolling Stone magazine as if they’re long time confidants. Did he think no one would read the article where he blasts the President’s Afghanistan team? My only conclusion is ‘brain fart’. A temporary disconnect of the brain from the mouth. Unfortunately, this one’s likely to get a lot worse than it smells.

‘Cause surely he knew
Rolling Stone would be read by his boss.
