The Economist on the Petraeus Spectacle

Congress is a terrible show. It is the dullest gaggle of gasbags ever to be given so much power. If the world's most powerful bunch of legislators, addressing the world's most important subject, can't do better at holding attention and making a point with verve and oration, it's no surprise people tune out.

Brief and damning, the post at Democracy in America does a wonderful at displaying the absurdity of today's proceedings.

MORE: Not mentioned in the aforementioned post was Tom Lantos, the Bay Area Rep. whose opening statement can be found here.
