Pratfall in Damascus
Nancy Pelosi's foolish shuttle diplomacy

That is the title of today’s Washington Post’s unexpected (but well deserved) drubbing of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s ill-advised and destructive trip to the Middle East.

Nancy – clearly you have “jumped the shark” and it’s time for you to slink quietly off the stage. If "Pravda on the Potomac" is scolding you, you are really heading for the big downhill slide. I told you not to piss off Hillary Clinton, didn’t I? And I guarantee you this, somewhere in that scabrous creature's den of useful minions, some designated “uppity Speaker destroyer” is being patted approvingly on the head by the Queen Bee of Chappaqua.

Read the whole thing yourself. It’s priceless. And wholly justified.

Slink quietly? Let's get out one of those big hooks that they used to use in burlesque shows and yank this woman behind the curtain permanently!

With the Bush administration grabbing negative headlines at every turn, why on earth would she try to edge her way into the paper with this half baked jaunt into terrorist territory?

The story this week was "Bush, Gonzalez, and co. invent 12 new ways to flatten the wheel". Now it's "pelosi this, pelosi that."
