If I had a dollar for every DCF I ever did.... Hey, wait a minute, I do! 
I may even get as many $ a year in retirement as the number of analyses 
I did. Or not....

What you say has more than a little truth in it in my experience. And 
the tool is inherently flawed, no matter how honestly applied, but the 
only one at hand. All these analyses depend on all kinds of assumptions 
about the future, none of which will be particularly accurate.

I still think the exercise is often actually useful. If honestly done, 
it both makes the assumptions explicit and provides a framework in which 
to evaluate them. Just the process of doing an analysis forces more 
thaought than would otherwise go into the decision.
