The Headscarf Heard Round The (Right Wing) World

This is what the right wing bloggers are in a tizzy over:

"This picture disgusts me. What message is Nancy Pelosi trying to send? Are women equal to men, or not? Why is modesty foisted only upon women? That's the inconvenient truth for conservative Muslims, and for liberal Americans trying desperately (and unsuccessfully) to reconcile the desire for understanding between cultures, and those cultures' starkly illiberal practices."
The wingers seemed to have forgotten these little acts of subservients:

"It pains the left too, I’m sure, to see the most powerful woman in America having to yield, however slightly, to a misogynistic culture’s expectations, but they can’t vent their anger at the people responsible so they’ll vent it at Charles or me or whomever instead."
Only "pains" if you are a Democrat, evidently.

FEMINIST IN AMERICA, subservient in Syria.
"Subservient" seems to be a popular thing.

The modern Democratic leadership. How ... quaint.
Leadership is quaint, isn't it?

Short memories, doncha think?
