General Petraeus Rules Out 2012 Run Again, Misquotes Country Song


Today, in response to some prodding from CNN, General David Petraeus once again denied any intention to run for president in 2012. Instead of going all William Tecumseh Sherman on us — too obvious? — Petraeus borrows a line from that “great country song” by Lorrie Morgan: “What about no don’t you understand.” [Political Ticker/CNN]
