Love Means Never Having To Say You Were Misquoted

The saga of Carol Anne Riddell and John Partilla, first mentioned here by Sally, has taken an interesting turn. The New York Times "Vows" profile of the media whores star-crossed lovers, recently married following the jettisoning of their respective spouses and families, touched off a storm of controversy with Times readers and bloggers alike.

Shortly following the article's publication, Riddell took to damage control, telling Forbes online "we did this because we wanted one honest account of how this happened for our sakes and for our kids sakes."

But now, it would appear that the groom is having some misgivings about the Times piece. "I think if we had an indication afterwards of the nerve it would have struck, we obviously would not have shared in any way publicly."

I get the sense that Partilla may not be as, erhm, committed to this as his bride. Recall from the original piece , Partilla "moved out of his home, reluctantly leaving his three children. But he returned only days later....then he boomeranged back and forth for six months."

He sounds like a rock.

Let's see: we just passed a two year extension of EXISTING tax rates while increasing our debt (and Obama's reelection fund) by nearly a trillion dollars, we're about to ratify a treaty (IN A LAME DUCK SENATE!) that will in effect kill any missile defense we may care to develop and leave us vulnerable to any third world jihadist camel jockey rich enough to buy a warhead from the Bulgarians and a delivery system from the Iranians... and what are we doing? Talking about a couple of scumbags and their rationalizations for self-destruction.
Sounds right to me. Well C-ya, gotta go do paperwork and watch "I Dream of Jeanie" (God almighty what I could do with that woman!).

Be careful Hammer. I understand that in her old age, Jeanie has become somewhat hard of hearing. If you don't tell her your wish loudly and clearly, you could end up with a 10-inch pianist.
