With her visit to Syria, Nancy Pelosi continues to impress SWNID with her inability to perceive how her actions give off an air of regal hubris unfitting her role as Speaker of the Lower Chamber. She admits that the visit will produce nothing of diplomatic import.
It produces plenty for Assad, of course, namely, plenty of legitimacy for his oppressed domestic constituency, not unlike the effect for Ahmadinejad of seizing his British hostages.
And it does the same for Queen Nancy. She can now be hailed by her left-wing netroots base as the Alt-President they believe her to be.
Such are the schemes of those whose claim to power lacks legal and constitutional legitimacy.
UPDATE: On 04/07 the WaPo's editorial board pastes Queen Nancy without mercy for her faux shuttle diplomacy. It seems she "carried a message" from Israeli PM Olmert that he immediately denied having given. Even the MSM must now admit that its hopes for a New Day with the Dems have been dashed. Wake up, Madam Speaker. You're not in the Bay Area any more.
