Jimmy Carter has come back out of the woodwork to announce that he supports Nancy Pelosi's trip to Syria...despite calls from the White House not to go. Of course all of this is familiar to Carter...he goes and visits America's enemies and tyrants around the world regularly. Visiting Bashar Assad is small potatoes for Carter...he's clinked champagne glasses with Fidel Castro and Kim Jong-Il, among others.

Says the former president "I was glad that she went. When there is a crisis, the best way to help resolve the crisis is to deal with the people who are instrumental in the problem." with them. We all know how well Jimmy handled the last Iranian hostage crisis, don't we? Apparently in Carter's world, the best way to deal with those who are causing a crisis is to appease them. But the White House is having none of it. Said President Bush in the Rose Garden: "Photo opportunities and or meetings with President Assad lead the Assad government to believe they're part of the mainstream of the international community when, in fact, they're a state sponsor of terror." Exactly. Syria is responsible for re-supplying the insurgency in Iraq and the death of American troops.

But all of this is no problem for Nancy Pelosi. There's also some whispering that the Pelosi visit might have had something to do with the freeing of the 15 British soldiers. They wish. So what's next for Nancy Pelosi? Perhaps there are other American enemies she could visit with. There's always The Gargoyle. Maybe Osama has time on his schedule for tea with Madame Speaker.
