The Biggest T-Rex of All

This cartoon by the Chicago Tribune's Scott Stantis ran in today's Star Tribune:

Political cartoon showing Uncle Sam reading a book called 50 Shades of Petraeus while surrounded by T-Rexes labeled Debt Economy Syria and Middle East
It sums up my feelings about the unimportance of the Petraeus hubbub, but the thing that I would correct is the labels on the dinosaurs. Or maybe I'd add an even bigger dinosaur that threatens not just Uncle Sam but all of the other dinos: Climate change. Seems like a pretty big omission.

I think the Petraeus incident has some (a little) relevance because he was considered a talented and capable leader, and those seem to be hard to find. Worse, if a guy like him can make such a dumb mistake, how can we trust any of them.... etc. Now there's the juicy gossip aspect, plus the spectre of yet another part of our system corrupted by ego, greed, etc. Sigh.
