I do feel your pain, having been there before (a few times, actually).
And yes, the thing *is* screwed up--making the right sounds is more important than the actual substance of your idea. I am of the opinion that the whole VC thing these days is full of late-comers who missed the boat in the 90s and early 00s (post-bubble) and are playing catch-up while resorting to unhealthy amounts of speculation in the process.
With that said, I fail to see how those who manage to convince investors to give them money are wankers. It is the likes of you and me, my dear chap, who are the real wankers here.
... at least we are wankers who try, mind.
