Now the #petraeus scandal has a crazy twin sister angle. Please, please let a Tampa stripper with a heart of gold to be the next discovery.—

No, really. An “unstable” twin sister has entered the already salacious Petraeus scandal mix.
For those watching Petraeus soap opera, remember there's a twin sister out there. Like that won't lead to a bizarre twist.—

More from the New York Post:
Gen. David Petraeus sure loved helping his lady friends.
While he was director of the CIA, Petraeus wrote a letter supporting the child-custody fight of the “psychologically unstable” twin sister of his close friend Jill Kelley — whose bombshell claims of being threatened by his lover led to the top spy’s resignation last week, sources told The Post.
The four-star general’s letter to the court — written in the past two months — supported a motion to overturn a ruling made nearly a year earlier by a judge who resoundingly denied custody to Kelley’s sister, Natalie Khawam, because of serious reservations about her honesty and mental stability, court records show.
Oh, my! Over/under on a nasty case of amnesia coming next? Perhaps we will find out that the twin is actually Kelley’s mother, transformed into her twin by a nefarious villain, who trapped her for years in his hidden lair?
Twitter users digest this latest angle as only they can. Hilarity, of course, ensues.
When I read that one of the people in the Petraeus whatever-it-is has an *identical twin*, I realized I'm a bit player in a screwball comedy—

Can't believe this thing has an evil twin sister now. We're hours away from learning Petraeus is Gen. Allen's real father.—

And now the Petraeus scandal has a twin sister angle . . . at what point did national security become an episode of Melrose Place?—

Jill Kelley, the other other woman, has an identical twin sister. The Petraeus scandal is reaching self-parody,—

Indeed. Twitchy will, of course, update with further developments. Like a long-lost father, who was kidnapped years ago by a fierce tribe of Amazon women. Or something.
Update: Double oh, dear.
