Breitbart News ad features sexist image of Nancy Pelosi as Miley Cyrus

This has got to be a new low, even for the conservative media.

Breitbart News launched its California political coverage today with an ad campaign featuring some street art-style images, including this one of Nancy Pelosi in a Miley Cyrus-esque pose, as well as a confusing one about about Silicon Valley Girls starring Mark Zuckerburg with topless breasts (seriously, can someone explain?). As The Wire notes, the ads are all part of Breitbart’s attempt to cultivate an image of the right wing as cool and edgy. “But the new ads don’t seem dangerous and new; instead they play on old sexist tropes.” 

This has got to be a new low, even for the conservative media.

The Feministing Five: Nancy Pelosi

Nancy Pelosi is the first woman in history to serve as Speaker of the House, aka the next person in the Presidential line of succession after the Vice President. She was Speaker from 2007 until 2011, and is now the Minority Leader.

Before she was Speaker, a role in which she was crucial to the passage of the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”), she was also the first woman in history to serve as Minority Whip. She also served on the House intelligence and appropriations committees. She’s been in electoral politics longer than I’ve been on the planet, and she has five kids. She’s pro-choice, has a 0% rating from the NRA, and doesn’t take any shit from anyone. She’s a ...

Nancy Pelosi shuts down Luke Russert for sexist question

“Let’s for the moment honor it as a legitimate question although it’s quite offensive but you don’t realize it, I guess.” — Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 

That was Nancy Pelosi yesterday responding to a sexist question by NBC reporter Luke Russert.  Russert’s exact question, at Pelosi’s announcement that she was not stepping down as House Minority Leader went as follows:

“Some of your colleagues privately say that your decision to stay on prohibits the party from having a younger leadership and hurts the party in the long term,” he said. “What’s your response?”

“Let’s for the moment honor it as a legitimate question although it’s quite offensive but you don’t realize it, I guess.” — Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

DNC: Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi talks war on women

I’m at the Democratic National Convention all week long and yesterday was included in a reporters round table with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).  Leader Pelosi spoke passionately about why the president should be re-elected saying, “I’ve issued a D.A.R.E.,” which stands for Disclose, Amend (the Constitution to overturn Citizens United), Reform the system (leading to public financing of campaigns), and Elect reformers (in a bipartisan way)…We have to take back our democracy from the plutocracy.”
