How To Know A Republigoat Is Lying:

Their lips are moving.

Witness the White House’s recent attempt to do the Jane Fonda (and no, not in a Mickey Avalon kinda way, more like in a swift vote betterans for shit kind of way) on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Via Bloomberg:

“March 30 (Bloomberg)—A White House spokeswoman denounced a plan by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to visit officials in Syria as part of a trip to the Middle East.

“Pelosi’s outreach to a state sponsor of terrorism is a ‘really bad idea,’ White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said at a briefing in Washington. ‘Someone should take a step back and think about the message that it sends and the message that it sends to our allies.’

Perino’s remarks come as a group of Republican lawmakers has embarked on their own trip to Syria. Michael Lowry, a spokesman for Representative Robert Aderholt, said that the Alabama lawmaker will visit Syria as part of a Republican delegation led by Representative Frank Wolf, a Virginia Republican. Wolf is the top Republican on the House appropriations subcommittee that funds the State Department.

“Perino wasn’t available to comment about that trip.”

Of course she wasn’t.

To make matters worse, the “liberal media” is just conspiring with the White House in this attempt to turn the leader of the peoples’ house into “Damascus Nancy.” Click on this here to see Media Matters’ coverage of CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux’s failure to be a journalist. 

Don’t let ’em do it, kids. There is nothing out of the ordinary about a congressional delegation to Syria. The only reason for the White House to bark about this is that these assholes don’t believe that anyone with the “D” in front of their names has any right to govern, and that they therefore have the right to do a Jane Fonda on her. Next water cooler you’re standing next to and the fella intimates that Nancy Pelosi is somehow unpatriotic for visiting Syria, punch him in the stomach. He deserves it for being such a booger eating moron.
