NRCC runs contest for anti-Pelosi slogans

The NRCC plans to run the most popular slogan suggestion on a mobile billboard that will tour San Fransisco for a full day early next week. 

The contest at lolapelosi.com ends at the end of the day.

“Since Nancy Pelosi has ignored the clear message sent to her in the 2010 elections that America doesn’t want her in power, we’ll make sure she sees their message circling her office in San Francisco for an entire day," said NRCC Digital Coordinator Nick Marcelli. "Just as she once told America that we had to pass ObamaCare to find out what was in it, Pelosi is going to find out what Americans think of her failed leadership thanks to LOLaPelosi.com.”

Submissions have to be less than 100 words, and political observers can "vote" for popular submissions either by tweeting it out from the contest homepage or by submitting an email vote. Both options are by each submission on the "leaderboard" where suggested slogans are publicly listed along with their current popularity score.

The Democrats tied the NRCC to Mitt Romney's recent reference, during the second presidential debate, to "binders full of women" in responding to the contest. 

"Ah, so the bored frat boys at the NRCC have nothing better to do than create stupid websites attacking Democratic women," said a senior Democratic aide. "Looks like they have their own binder full of women. The women voters that will decide this election won't respond well to these kind of blatant attacks on women."

The contest could potentially backfire on the NRCC, though. A pro-Pelosi message — "We love you, Nancy. We need you as speaker!" — currently sits at no. 2 on the list of popular suggestions.

The NRCC said it is not concerned that Pelosi supporters could take over the contest.

"Republican enthusiasm across the country and up and down the ticket is far outpacing the left's enthusiasm for their candidates," said a NRCC spokesman. "We're confident that this enthusiasm will be reflected in the winning message being a truthful critique of Nancy Pelosi's failed leadership."

The NRCC is spreading the word through social media including Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, and asking others to do the same.
