You might be a liberal if...

you recycle Democratic Party talking points into blog posts.

The talking point was Republican Senator John Warner handing the Democrats an early Christmas present by pulling the "MacArthur trick" on General David Petraeus:
He [Senator Warner] then asked Petraeus a pointed question: "Do you feel that [Iraq war][sic] is making America safer"?

Petraeus paused before responding. He then said: "I believe this is indeed the best course of action to achieve our objectives in Iraq."

That was, of course, a non-answer. And Warner wasn't going to let the general dodge the bullet. He repeated the question: "Does the [Iraq war][sic] make America safer?"

Petraeus replied, "I don't know, actually. I have not sat down and sorted in my own mind."
This was a question with no correct answer for General Petraeus, and thus the General's reponse was virtually guarenteed to become the sound clip of the week in the liberal media. It's also interesting to note that a certain purportedly conservative blogger has fallen for it hook, line, and sinker:
He's fighting a war that he hasn't even decided is vital or even beneficial to the security of the United States. That's how lost we are in mission creep. That's the depth of the hole in which Petraeus has been ordered to keep digging.
