US right wing smears Pelosi as ‘subservient’ for wearing headscarf

Right-wing bloggers in the US have been sneering at Nancy Pelosi for wearing a headscarf during her visit to the Umayyad mosque in Damascus – “yielding to a misogynistic culture’s expectations”, “behold Pelosi queen of the dhimmis”, you know the sort of thing. However, as one critic points out, Little Green Footballs et al are being rather selective in their Islamophobia: “Apparently they never saw Laura Bush when she visited al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.”
