    make it about personalities, and they've been going after Pelosi for years, for everything from being an out of touch California liberal to her physical appearance. As a result she is reviled by wingnuts everywhere, and any policy the Democrats put forward can be instantly dismissed, without having to actually argue against it, simply because she supports it.

    When your base is idiots, who really can't understand detailed policy arguments or just don't want to think about this stuff, these tactics are very effective.
