Petraeus is to rim jobs as...

Larry Craig is to consensual wide-stancing.

Asia Times Online :: Middle East News - Petraeus out of step with US top brass
WASHINGTON - In sharp contrast to the lionization of General David Petraeus by members of the US Congress during his testimony this week, Petraeus's superior, Admiral William Fallon, chief of the Central Command (Centcom), derided Petraeus as a sycophant during their first meeting in Baghdad in March, according to Pentagon sources familiar with reports of the meeting.

Fallon told Petraeus that he considered him to be "an ass-kissing little chickenshit" and added, "I hate people like that," the sources say.
If Admiral Fallon were George Bailey, he might have said:

"You think the whole world revolves around you and your surge--well it doesn't, Mr. Petraeus! In the whole vast configuration of things, you're nothing but a scurvy little ass-kissing chickenshit spider!"
