(Newser) – A Republican congressman tells Politico that a new RNC video depicting Nancy Pelosi as Pussy Galore is "reprehensible, irresponsible and unpersuasive." Utah's Jason Chaffetz says the GOP must "get away from the politics of personal destruction." The video, which juxtaposes Pelosi with the infamous James Bond villain, is meant to demonstrate Pelosi's "lack of leadership" in her current spat with the CIA, the RNC explains.

"Policy and public comments are fair game, and there are creative ways to amplify it, but I despise it when Democrats and organizations like MoveOn.org use these types of tactics," Chaffetz said. "I would like our party to be more consistent in calling out inappropriate behavior like this. We've got to show some leadership and get serious about the issues at hand."
