This is a little strange, even for the RNC: they put a racy and fairly offensive anti-Pelosi video on YouTube, then took it down, possibly right after it was the subject of this scathing Politico piece about it. Here’s Garance Franke-Ruta describing the video:
Set against the iconic James Bond movie theme music, the video “Pelosi vs. CIA” takes viewers through Pelosi’s accusation against the CIA that “they mislead us all the time” and that “their business is deception.” White House Press Secretary Robert Gibb’s desire to stay out of the fray is also highlighted. “Starring Nancy Pelosi,” the video, which mimics a film trailer, says over a split-screen shot of the speaker and partially-obscured images of what appears to be Honor Blackman, who played Pussy Galore. Galore was a rare female criminal ring-leader in the film franchise based on Ian Fleming’s novels, and eventually switched to Secret Agent 007’s side. The GOP video also features a shot of a hand from the Goldfinger movie, and two shots of Pelosi smoothing back her bob.
The GOP spot closes with the tagline, over a nearly-nude woman’s back, “Lack of Leadership. Democrats Galore.”
These are the people that led weeks of Congressional hearings about Janet Jackson’s breast.
Update. The video is up at a new URL:
