Nancy the Shopper in Damascus

I always thought Nancy Pelosi was clueless, but I never thought she was this clueless. Even the WaPo is treating her like a buffoon. She reminds me of the kind of spoiled woman you see at Neiman-Marcus walking around with a professional shopper, only she’s shopping for Middle East peace as if it were the latest blouson from Chanel. (Wonder what designer did the head scarf she wore at the mosque the other day.) Nancy is the emblem of the kind aristocratic arrogance I used to associate with Republicans. I note the NYT is not covering her peregrinations on the front page – they’re probably too embarrassed.
