I said this over at C&L this morning and I want to say it here, too. Then I've said my piece and I'm done.
Nancy Pelosi's need to avoid dirtying her shoes on the ground of flyover country is a non-issue, and everybody knows it. Hang it up.
But let's get to a real issue: our own Nancy Pelosi is headlining the AIPAC conference next month.
Lobbyists for a foreign country that may (but of course, we don't know for sure because no one, certainly not H. Clinton or J. Edwards*, ever mentions it) have way too much influence in our Middle East foreign policy.
BTW I thought Pelosi was gonna do something about lobbyists and their influence in Washington. The conference is IN Washington, Nancy. You won't even hafta fly commercial.
I find last year's outrage over the Dubai port deal hilarious given that there is another country in the Middle East running our State Department. All Dubai wants to do is build malls and sell Calvin Klein to oil-rich trophy wives.
And...um, speaking of trophy wives, Pammy Atlas and her AIPAC friends think the saber rattling re Iran is just grand.
Madam Speaker, you got some 'splaining to do.
*Gee, Hilary and John accepted an earlier invite to genuflect.
If we don't like war in the Middle East, oh nevermind. Just think about it.
