Dear Blogging Tories: About that Nancy Pelosi pants-wetting of yours ...


My my my ... how about this? It wasn't that long ago that so many of the Blogging Tories were embarrassing their species and obediently regurgitating the right-wing talking points regarding Nancy Pelosi and her trip to Syria.

We had faithful neo-con stenographer Jonathan Strong referring to "Pelosi's Bungled Diplomacy," the Canadian Sentinel yammering on about a possible felony, and Dr. Roy just being his retarded dumbass self.

What a difference a few days makes:

Differing Tales of a White House Encounter

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told colleagues yesterday that she was incredulous after President Bush pulled her aside at the end of a meeting Wednesday and told her he did not criticize her recent trip to Syria.

After all, Bush and other senior administration officials and top Republicans had slammed the speaker publicly for meeting in Damascus with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. But in a private meeting with Democratic lawmakers yesterday, Pelosi said Bush told her in an unsolicited comment that it was actually the State Department that criticized her.

You can expect a correction/retraction/apology from any of the above about the time Satan begins ice skating to work.

Heh. Even Bush is abandoning his own administration. And why not? That's the only thing Bush ever does: quit.

I'm reminded of a Daily Show joke: "It's not me picking my nose. It's my right hand."
