This is how the Republicans hope to re-brand the party?  By a sexist video comparing Nancy Peloso to the villainess in the 1964 James Bond film, “Goldfinger,” with a first name that many of their members would find vulgar?  The RNC refused repeated requests by Politico to explain the video.


It’s quite clear that Republicans think it can expand it’s white, male-based party by using sexism to sell whatever product it thinks it has. So far, rather than solutions to today’s problems, all it has is attacks on Nancy Pelosi.


Earlier this week, Pittsburgh radio host Jim Quinn referred to the speaker on his program as “this bitch”; last week, syndicated radio host Neal Boortz opined “how fun it is to watch that hag out there twisting in the wind.”

 

There has also been a steady stream of taunts about the speaker’s appearance, and whether it’s been surgically enhanced. On CNN’s “State of the Union,” Republican strategist Alex Castellanos said, “I think if Speaker Pelosi were still capable of human facial expression, we’d see she’d be embarrassed.”

 

Even erstwhile presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee took the time to pen a poem that begins:

 

“Here’s a story about a lady named Nancy / A ruthless politician, but dressed very fancy.”



The Republicans are intentionally ignoring their own accusations of the CIA lying. And they are conveniently forgetting the CIA’s own admission that it had dates on congressional breifings wrong.  But instead of taking personal responsibility for their own actions and statements, that rather attack the first woman Speaker of the House using language and imagery they’d never use for the white males who form the base of their shrinking constituency.
