(CNN) – He has little chance of unseating House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in her San Francisco congressional district, but Republican John Dennis knows how to make a splash.
The California businessman is out with a new Web video portraying the House Speaker as the Wicked Witch of the West in a campy takeoff of the Wizard of Oz.
The parody, released Sunday and already garnering close to 300,000 views on YouTube, includes Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, and Dorothy expressing fright of the state of the nation and bemoaning Democratic policies.
"I will save you from those evil Republicans," a faux-Nancy Pelosi-turned-Wicked Witch of the West assures the frightened group. "But first $18,000 for my downtown office, and then go into massive debt for Wall Street bailouts, and here are my monkeys (IRS agents) to make you pay for it all."
Dennis then appears, throwing water on the Pelosi figure who promptly begins to melt.
"I believe it's time to throw a little water on politicians who do one thing and do another like Nancy Pelosi," says Dennis.
In an interview with San Francisco Weekly, Dennis is pledging more zany videos taking aim at the California Democrat, including parodies of a Few Good Men and James Bond.
Though Dennis has spent over a million dollars on the race, his chances of winning are virtually nil – in 2008, Pelosi won 71 percent of the vote and appears headed for a similarly-large victory this November.
Responding to the ad, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Spokeswoman Jennifer Crider said laughing, "A silly web video deserves a silly response: Lions, and tigers, and bears! Oh, my!”
I bet he didn't bring one solution to the table or propose a good,practical idea, just quick sound bites and emotion-rousing images to confuse the already confused folks, just like the rest of them.
Nancey Pelosi should be made Queen!
She cares for our country,and like a good mother she takes care of her sick.
Dennis is just the fake wizard of OZ,blowing smoke.
You can always rely on Republicans to bring class and civility to the political discourse.
It is sad when an empty-headed, glassy-eyed witch garners 71% of the vote. That just goes to show how screwed up people in California are. But, who can be surprised? California is a haven for hand outs, freebies, illegals, ect. Everything the country shouldn't be is seen in California. So why should the representatives from that state be any less screwed up?
how old is this guy that made the commerical? its pretty scary to see a mind set like this running for a political office.
This is an awful ad.
It is true that there is very little chance Speaker Pelosi will be voted out in her liberal stronghold San Francisco, but there is near 100 percent probability Dem. will lose the majority in the House early in November and Pelosi will have to move out of the onate speaker's suite before the year is over.
Awesome!!! she is such a hag I cant wait till she is gone for good!
Her and all her scumbag dems!!
We can only hope now that she will spend time in a Federal prison.
CNN and other Progressives entities have worked hard to enthrone these thugs. The American people will never forget the harm that CNN and allies have done to the republic.
I think it is great she gets a bath instead of the taxpayers.
I wonder if Dennis obtained copyright/trademark permissions...?
Let me tell you a story about how much this woman cares for the folks in her home town - SF - last week while home for the holidays she went shopping with eight secret service workers who immediately blocked off the cars parked in their way while she went into a store and shopped. Nice, huh?
Hopefully in November, we'll be able to really pour some cold water on the Nancy Pelosi regime. The country needs to heal after 4 years of democrat rule in the congress and the people recognize that the failed, neo socialist policies of the democrats are wrong for the country. The democrats are really desperate and they'll be dragging out their favorite pinata, George Bush, going into the fall elections.
Of course he has to make a ficticious ad....he has nothing based on fact that he can run against!
To bad 300,000 views does not translate into votes. I have yet to hear a new idea or plan from the GOP establishment.
No matter what party you belong to, that's funny!! It's even quality production. Here in Maryland we have one showing Barbara Mickulski's head on a T-Rex along with other political "dinosauers in need of extinction". It's not nearly as well done.
Well, she is the Wicked Witch of the West.
The BOTOX Queen is the most despised person in Congress across the nation. A 10% approval rating. Are you kidding me!
Don't ask me to feel sorry about this old wench.
It's amazing to this outsider that with 70+% of the Nation disliking this woman the voters of San Francisco would reelect her!! You get what you pay for, folks!!!
Have all national Republican candidates participate in a victory parade, without any accompanying U.S. troops, in downtown Baghdad. Give the local population has the chance to show their appreciation for everything these creatures have done to, I mean, for them. That should solve our domestic political problems and improve the nation's DNA.
I said it before and I will say this again. What are the GOP solutions? any? any? I thought so.
Since your typical republicans cannot reason above the level of a 2nd grader and is afraid of all kinds of made up characters and vulnerable, this is how the republicans have to appeal to their constituency: with fairy tales.
I told you this long time ago...GOP itself is viral, which messed this nation like a hell, and crazy....now sending all viral by GOP thugs...watch your computers...these old GOP brainless thugs will do any thing to ruin this nation....God Bless you, America...old GOP thugs even say they are war veterans...etc, all b.s....
Let's who goes to lowest, the republican are way out in the lead.
If that is what it takes to motive thier base, I want no part of them!
Stupid, stupid man. I wish I could vote against him. Marlene in Mich
She is an absolute disgrace. If San Franciscans elect her again, they will be the laughing stock of the country in November.
"Wicked witch" is too kind.
