(New York Post) They'll give a medal to anyone.
Military schmoozer Jill Kelley — a central figure in the investigation of Gen. David Petraeus — in March 2011 was awarded a prestigious medal from the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The award, the country's second-highest honor for a civilian, was given to acknowledge Kelley's "selfless contributions" and "willingness to host engagements" for top pols and military brass.

Petraeus recommended her for the award while he was commander of Tampa's US Central Command, a spokesman for the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the Tampa Tribune.
