U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is America’s latest political boogeyman, uh, boogeywoman.
Pundits, campaign leaders and political observers agree that this campaign season, she’s the new national target, in the tradition of U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts or GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
The California Democrat also is unwittingly helping Republicans raise money and causing more than a few headaches for the more conservative members of her party, like U.S. Rep. Travis Childers of Booneville.
Firenancypelosi.com is a Republican-sponsored website that’s gained traction since the Obama Administration passed health care reform in March. So far, it’s brought in more than $1.5 million for the GOP’s push to regain congressional seats.
