At least one Republican doesn't think it's OK to compare Nancy Pelosi to Pussy Galore.
After viewing an RNC video that juxtaposed the speaker with the James Bond
villainess, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) told POLITICO Saturday:
"I thought it was reprehensible, irresponsible and unpersuasive. If we're going to regain the credibility of the American people, we're going to have to stop with silly antics like that. It may get a snide chuckle inside the Beltway, but it offends most people. We have to get away from the politics of personal destruction," he said of the video.
Knowing that history of this MORON, he is sue a GOP primary challenge in 2010 anyway. Sleeping on a cot in his office indeed.
Under intense fire from the right, former secretary of state Colin L. Powell is preparing to answer his Republican critics this weekend in a television appearance that is likely to add fuel to his long-standing feud with top conservatives in his party.
The appearance will come just days after Powell, one of the country's leading black political figures, told an audience in Boston that a new Republican Party is "waiting to emerge." Earlier this month, he said the party is in "deep trouble" because "Americans are looking for more government in their life, not less."
The RNC uses images and audio from 1964â€™s Goldfinger, where not only Bond but the CIA gets to play, to tweak Liar Pelosi and Hapless Gibbs. For a brief 3 seconds (at .40) SanFranGran is shown side-by-side with Bond villainess, Pussy Galore, and all kerfuffle breaks loose.
Michael Steel, press secretary for House Republican leader John Boehner, said that while there isnâ€™t a â€œdeliberate strategy,â€ heâ€™s noticed â€œRepublican aides being sure to engage with liberal websites like Huffington Post â€” just because for no other reason than they drive a lot of cable coverage.â€
With that kind of cooperation from the right, itâ€™s not surprising that Republican points of view have shown up on the site recently.
