Karina at The Gavel - Speaker Pelosi's blog - slams the WaPo editorial for it's blatant misrepresentations about Pelosi's trip to Syria, and points to the stark contradictions which exist to the newspaper's own reporting on the event. Best of all, she quotes a number of the Republicans who have also visited Syria, every one of whom essentially endorsed Pelosi's efforts, and also voiced criticism of Bush.While the temptation was surely difficult to resist, Karina elected not to join others in identifying Fred Hiatt as Wanker of the Day.
