What A Revolting Development This Is: David Petraeus And Another Powerful Aphrodisiac, Henry Kissinger

“Power Is The Ultimate Aphrodisiac”–Henry Kissinger 

Secretary Of State Kisisnger and his then girlfriend, actress Jill St. John

I have searched and searched for specific video or audio of William Bendix or Jackie Gleason delivering the famous 1940s/1950s Chester A. Riley   line and expression of frustration: “What a revolting development this is!”.

It exists embedded in blurry old sitcom episodes of The Life Of Riley . Here’s Jackie Gleason in 1949/1951. He won an Emmy for his performance but only lasted  one year to be replaced by Bendix who had played the role on radio. Gleason is  thin and pre-Ralph Cramden ,but all the the Honeymooners elements are here. And speaking of being “embedded” (wasn’t PB embedded with DP in a war zone)? Here’s the result of that revolting development in living color: (Wife in white, Other Woman in black) both at his  CIA confirmation hearings:

And don’t forgot what Nixon administration sex-symbol and catnip to women, Henry Kissinger, said about powerful men being a turn-on for women. Makes me wonder, at what point does a Harvard-educated MD’s wife and mother, first  look at a dude who looks like Patraeus, and think: “Why General, you’re beautiful…”?
