Shorter Republican Talking Points During the Petraeus Hearing:

1- Look at his shiny medals.
2- Apologize for MoveOn.
3- Reagan, Reagan, Reagan
4- You can't possibly attack this man's credibility.

It's really stunning that the Republican pro-war argument has fallen this far. I'm not really sure what they're arguing for outside of the fact that General Petraeus has had a successful and distinguished military career and that MoveOn thinks he's a political hack. This guy is being treated like a household cleaning product. Just spray it on and the dirt washes right off!!! Remember, this is the party that was supposed to be "grown up" and reliable in its handling of the war. They've been reduced to a chorus of "But he's a good guy!"
