10. Are Congressional Dems so mentally retarded that they really counted
on Petraeus giving a gloom-and-doom report? EVERYONE knows that Petraeus is going to give the surge a thumbs-up--everyone. I don't believe it--they may be ineffective teabags, but they're not politically naive. However, the rest of his predictions will probably come true. Dems caved against the FISA/terror issue, and they'll cave again in the face of Petraeus, Goober Graham and Lieberworm. Don't want to be unpatriotic! Sick.
