'Attack of the 50-Foot Pelosi' Is Latest Bizarre GOP Attack Ad
|Monstrous Pelosi, ruthlessly destroying Republicans ability to concentrate|
The Washington Post, which reviewed the ad Thursday, suggests the ad might even burnish Pelosi's reputation, despite the fact it depicts her as a crazy cartoon monster. Republicans have chosen her as a bogeywoman precisely because she's been effective, the Post asserts.
Pelosi has unabashedly wielded the leverage of her office to muscle her agenda through the House. Once dismissed by her opponents -- and even some of her fellow Democrats -- as a lightweight, she has proved to be "the most powerful speaker we've seen in modern history," said political analyst Charlie Cook, whose assessment is shared by a number of congressional scholars.A question the Post didn't breach: Why would Republicans invest resources in a decent production value cartoon based on self-defeating nonsense when they're supposedly heading toward midterm elections on a so-called wave of public support?
