The GOP’s reliance on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as a fear-inducing boogeywoman of the “radical left” became actually comic as the election year wore on. Her name was sneeringly invoked in endless ads by Republican House candidates both here in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, as if the mere mention of the former first female Speaker of the House’s name would be enough to carry the day.

Welp, that day has come. It’s time to vote. And despite what the GOP would have you believe, Nancy Pelosi’s name won’t be on your ballot.
