No doubt somebody at the RNC thought it would be a clever idea, since Nancy Pelosi is feuding with the CIA, to run an ad comparing Pelosi to a James Bond villainess up against the superspy -- as in Bond's many screen-credit sequences wherein he blasts away at various villains.

Jaysus. What is it about right-wingers and their Pelosi assassination fantasies anyway. Eliminationism much, ya think?
