So Betray-Us has spoken and the Dems are pissing their pants. Being politicians, they have some sense of rational thought (how else can you convince someone its raining when you piss in their face?) and self-preservation. That's why they are pretty much leaving their hyperbole parked in the garage in favor of their much more economical and less flashy lowperbole.
Of course, on the crazy ass left, that shit don't fly. And the batshitters aren't staying under their rocks. The pole riders over at AmericaBlog are claiming that Petraeus has, get this, PERJURED himself. I am not shitting you, nor am I linking them. Their proof? A commentary by Michael Hirsh of Newsweek about the skinny he got on the downlow about a super cereal report about a pentagon group that PROVES HE IS LYING! TO CONGRESS! CAPSLOCK!
The article says that this inside group's recommendations
“differ substantially” from Petraeus’s recommendations... [the report] will “recommend a very rapid reduction in American forces: as much as two-thirds of the existing force very quickly, while keeping the remainder there.”
Well, holy fuck guys. He is totally screwed. They gots him. Caught red-handed, disagreeing with a pentagon group on the recommendations for future strategies in Iraq. Why, if it wasn't for those nosy kids at AmericaBlog, he'd have gotten away with it, too! Disagreeing.
