The brownshirt brigade loves outrage. They feed on it. They look for it. Seeing Pelosi in Syria gave them a great opportunity to stroke their indignation and gabble feverishly about her willingness to submit to terrorist chieftains.
I didn't think the speaker of the house should act like Israel's diplomat because Israel isn't the fifty first state. That being said though, whenever something makes the brownshirts squawk I recognize that it must be a good thing.
Pelosi traipsing around the middle east seems to be upsetting the warmongering agenda and talking with the leader of a country that's been in the crosshairs is never a bad thing. The fascists only like to bark orders at intended targets; they'd rather not talk to them as it humanizes them and makes it harder to shock and awe.
Web wingers saw that the White House was none too pleased with Pelosi and took the hint, so they piled on with relish and tried to make a mountain out of a molehill with some supposed message she was to deliver. It's a little hypocritical to denounce her visit to Syria when a contingent of republicans is there also. But they saved their drama queen outrage for her when she covered her head as a sign of respect for her muslim hosts. All over the righteousphere ™ if one holds ones nose and lifts the rock, you can hear the cries of anguish as the wingnuts fear that the US will now be seen as divided in our war with salamifascism. And how dare she project an image of humble sartorial subservience to people who speak a funny language and wear odd clothes in a strange way!
