that vice pays to virtue.

The White House has criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plans to stop in Syria during a Middle East trip that began Friday. “We discourage members of Congress to make such visits to Syria,” said White House deputy spokeswoman Dana Perino. “This is a country that is a state sponsor of terror.” Pelosi is scheduled to meet with Syria’s president next weekend, according to Syria’s ambassador to the United States

Yes, Syria is a state sponsor of terror. I’m sure that George Bush is mentally ticking off the names of the countries that sponsor terrorism as he arranges for the next White House visit of the Saudi Clown Prince turned King and his next visit with Bandar Bin Sultan of Shit. No doubt Donald Rumsfeld warmly agrees with Ms. Perino’s sentiments as he looks back fondly upon his visits to Iraq, replete with photo-op handshakes with Saddam Hussein himself.

The White House cannot tell members of Congress where to go (only we the people – allegedly – can). Nixon visited China and Reagan went behind the Iron Curtain, and somehow, the world survived. The mere act of visiting a country that sponsors terrorism doesn’t make the visitor a terrorist. Halliburton just moved its headquarters to Dubai. Are we to believe that the next time DICK Cheney pays the company a visit, he is acting as a “terrorist?” What’s next? Calling all of the Board Members of The Carlyle Group terrorists because of that group’s numerous connections to terror? The GOP doesn’t care about winning the struggle against Islamothugism. Instead of its getting off the pot, it is a mere pot, that is calling the kettle black.
