The news took a short break this week from the ongoing oil spill chaos and directed its attention toward something that humanity craves and thrives off of: fresh scandal. The revealing General McCrystal profile in the new issue of Rolling Stone made waves in the Twitterverse, as did the winning goal by new U.S. soccer hero Landon Donovan, the unbearable DC heat and humidity of summer, and America’s obsession with the latest in Apple products. These are the top tweets of this week.

@CADelargy: back day early from mini-vacay & walked into news shitstorm… McChrystal, Obama, Petraeus, Barton, oil spill, fatalities, Kagan, WorldCup…
@rainnwilson: I think Landon Donovan should be put in charge of the war in Afghanistan.
@thepreppylife : Mr. Neti Pot is now sending me tweets, a little scary to receive messages from a little plastic nose teapot.
