So I've been checking out some of the right wing blogs whining about the Pelosi talks with Syria... They're running pictures of Nancy Pelosi, who wore the head scarf when visiting Syria, complaining that she was willing to dress in Syria as women are expected to dress in Syria.

From Little Green Footballs:

The modern Democratic leadership.

Yes, I guess it's quite horrible for someone on a diplomatic mission to observe the traditions of the land she's visiting, huh?

So... Were you as harsh on Laura Bush?

No stupid, they were complaining because she is undermining our efforts in Iraq and the rest of the middle east. No one cares about the scarf.

She even screwed up the message from Olmert.

And by the way, I hold the same contempt for the republican delegates who went with her.

You don't negotiate with terrorists, or the state sponsors thereof.

You know, I'm not even sure you know what the hell a terrorist is. Light brown skin would be your definition, by my guess.

As far as Olmert goes... Wrong again, dumbass.

In an interview appearing in the Haaretz supplement Week's End, Olmert said he would be happy to take part in a regional conference that would support direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.

But do go on spouting your incompetent blather.

Ok I'll keep making you look stupid, this is fun!

An Israeli government official said that was not the message Olmert had asked Pelosi earlier this week to convey to Assad, who seeks the return of the Golan Heights, a strategic plateau Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war.

"The prime minister said Israel is interested in peace with Syria, but Syria would first have to abandon the path of terror and providing support for terrorist groups," the official said, in reference to Palestinian group Hamas and Lebanon's Hezbollah.

"Comments (Olmert) made to the speaker of the House did not represent any change in a policy Israel has expressed to all international figures dealing with the (Syrian) issue," a statement from Olmert's office said.
