Nancy Pelosi may not believe in the devil, but the devil believes in her.

It turns out that the Iranian Parliament is ready and eager to chat with United States Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi:
A top MP said on Friday the Tehran parliament would favour talks with US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after her controversial visit to Iran's ally Syria, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

"We are ready for talks with US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi," said Mohammad Nabi Rudaki, deputy head of the influential national security commission in Iran's conservative-dominated parliament.

"Parliamentary talks can discuss bilateral problems and bring US, European and Iranian nations closer. They could also consider Iran's peaceful nuclear issues," he said.

But Rudaki added that "this willingness does not mean a resumption of political ties with the occupying and bullying US government."

Pelosi's office said on Wednesday she had no intention of visiting Iran after a top US lawmaker signalled she might be interested in doing so.
In the annals of modern diplomacy, there are few things more humiliating to the recipient than the infamous "please allow us to host you in luxury as you cravenly promise to appease us" offer coming from a totalitarian regime. And in case you were wondering, Mohammad Nabi Rudaki's slip "bring US, European and Iranian nations closer" proves that this is a snow job. How, exactly, are personal meetings between Iranian ministers and an American Congresswoman supposed to bring "European and Iranian nations closer" if Nancy Pelosi isn't expected to sell out to the Iranian regime?
