Paula Broadwell smacks photographer in forehead with car door
NYDN ^ | November 19, 2012 | ennifer H. Cunningham AND Bill Hutchinson

Posted on 11/19/2012 1:53:45 PM PST by maggief

David Petraeus’ ex-mistress, Paula Broadwell, left a female news photographer with a bloodied forehead Monday in a confrontation outside the biographer’s North Carolina home.

The 40-year-old West Point grad smacked the photographer with the driver’s side door of her Nissan Pathfinder SUV.

“I had my camera and in all the chaos the door slammed and I got hit in the head with the flash,” said Nell Redmond, a freelancer for the Associated press.

Redmond suffered a small cut on her forehead in the incident, witnessed by a Daily News reporter.

The encounter occurred just before 2 p.m. as Broadwell, wearing sunglasses and a cream-colored turtleneck sweater, tried to avoid reporters and photographers by sneaking out a side door of her house in a ritzy enclave of Charlotte.

Paparazzi suck worse than Broadwell. Close enough to be hit by the car door is an invasion of personal space.

Apropos of nothing, I'd just like to point out that the depth of one's forehead has nothing to do with intelligence; since both these ladies have approximately the same amount:

“I had my camera and in all the chaos the door slammed and I got hit in the head with the flash,” said Nell Redmond, a freelancer for the Associated press.

Sounds like the “freelancer” had her face and camera inside the swing of the door. Obviously, AP needs to provide training for their “freelancers”. Say 20 - 40 hours of learning how to avoid opening and closing doors with a test afterwards requiring a score of at least 70%.

And while I’m thinking about it....

The name Broadwell might remind him of (Juanita) Broaddrick.

Also a nasty memory in the Bent One’s noggin.

Broadwell runs 7 minute miles for hours at a time and is likely strong as an ox.

If I am remembering right, the song was very popular in 1962. I brings back a lot of thoughts of that time for me.

And thank you, Third Person, for posting the lyrics.

Young Paula still has some 'splainin to do but I've seen enough evidence to vote "not guilty" on this count.

In fact smacking some dyke reporter in the face with her own camera kinda appeals to me that she might be deserving of a chance at redemption.

I bet she looks pretty nice in sunglasses and a cream-colored turtleneck.

This must be the FIRST TIME an SUV has not been blamed for an incident.

reporters would normally write it as "SUV STRIKES PHOTOGRAPHER IN THE FOREHEAD"

Sandy Berger breached by filling his socks and his breeches, and he should have been switched on his britches for eons it, instead of losing his security clearance for just three years.

” Say 20 - 40 hours of learning how to avoid opening and closing doors with a test afterwards requiring a score of at least 70%.”

A great training evolution would be to send them to gaza, where a hamas rep meets them as they crawl out of the tunnel and says “welcome infidel habibi, I take you to the hamas media center now, where you will be safe to photograph our rocket launchers up close!”

I was big into “oldies” when I was growing up in the late 60’s early 70’s. I had a bunch of records from the “Cruisin’” series (those were mostly 50’s) which were great because they included radio commercials from the time. I’m pretty sure that was on ‘62 collection but I’ll have to google to be sure. I don’t have any of my album collection anymore to look.
