  • GOP BOGEYMAN: Nancy Pelosi.
Ernest Dumas this week writes about the Republican Party's persistent — and successful — use of bogeymen like President Obama, Harry Reid and, particularly, Nancy Pelosi to drive down numbers of Democrats, even in such irrelevant places as the race for Arkansas governor.

Dumas recites how Pelosi has been unfairly demonized and some of the achievements for which she should be remembered. Such as Obamacare, which a majority of Arkansas Republicans used to bring an enormous infusion of federal cash and health insurance to Arkansas. Whatever Asa Hutchinson says now, if he does defeat Mike Ross using Nancy Pelosi as a cudgel, you can bet he'll keep Obamacare in Arkansas. His budget will be destroyed without it.
