In the past, this would have been called diplomacy, and it would generally have come before war. Hey, if done right, it might even have prevented war. These days, though, things are different. In view of the administration's comments abouit Speaker Pelosi's visit, I guess the only conclusion to make here is that Rice, supports the terrorists and is guilty of treasonous behavior.

3. Does the liberal media have ADD?
Wasn't it JUST A MONTH AGO that the administration was criticizing Madam Speaker for her diplomatic outreach with Syria? Didn't Deadeye Dick say something stupid and nasty like "bad behavior"?

Didn't the right-wing freaks go batshit over Pelosi's scarf?

:wtf:

The depths of the hypocrisy are simply astounding.

5. Wow, that's brave of Dr. Rice
Considering how the media just savaged Speaker Pelosi for doing this, Dr. Rice is really going into the lions' den. How will Fox and NBC and CBS and ABC rake her over the coals for meeting with the enemy, an unelected official of a despotic regime that exports terror and terrorism all over the Middle East and the world?

Or did the talking chuckleheads exhaust all their fake dudgeon?

9. Well, if she does
It will no doubt be a sterling example of her sensitivity to the customs and mores of other cultures, and surely not a symbol of her submissiveness. I've got my outrage-o-meter calibrated right, right? If a Democrat does something, it's the Worst Thing In The World, and if a Republican does the exact same thing, it's okay?
