President Pissypants Disapproves of Pelosi's Trip to Syria
Can you believe it? Speaker Nancy Pelosi has defied the big bad Decider by planning to visit Syria. Against the wishes of President Pissypants, the Speaker actually plans to talk with representatives of the Syrian government! This is what happens when you let women into government. They talk to people!
The White House said Pelosi's trip is "a really bad idea."
Nancy Pelosi will meet with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad. The Speaker "will be the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit Syria since relations deteriorated between Damascus and Washington."
"I don't know what she is trying to accomplish, and I don't know if anyone in the administration has spoken to her about it," whined White House spokeswoman Dana Perino.
The State Department said, "it is not the right time to have these sort of high-profile visitors to Syria."
The White House accused Pelosi of "failing to heed the administration’s admonitions against travel to Damascus." The loyal Bushies in the White House also said that nobody told them Pelosi would be going to Syria. But Pelosi said she remembers talking to President Pissypants and telling him all about it.
Pelosi spokesman Brendan Daly said: "As recommended by the Iraq Study Group, a bipartisan delegation led by Speaker Pelosi intends to discuss a wide range of security issues affecting the United States and the Middle East with representatives of governments in the region, including Syria."
Speaker Pelosi is visiting Syria as part of a "nine-day goodwill trip to the Middle East."
Good will!?! What on earth will the Democrats think of next?
Update from Think Progress: The hypocritical Bushies haven't said a critical word about the Republicans who are currently in Syria, nor the bipartisan delegation Pelosi is leading to Syria.
