Conservatives Co-Opt Ice Bucket Challenge to Needle Nancy Pelosi

Can't beat her? Mock her!  

Such seems to be the mentality behind a new(ish) cyber swipe aimed at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.  



The would-be meme suggests that if the California Democrat participated in the insanely popular #IceBucketChallenge currently flooding your every social media feed, she would disintegrate — much like Elphaba Thropp famously did in the dramatic confrontation forever burned into our collective memory by “The Wizard of Oz.”  

Perennial candidate John Dennis went to that same well in 2010, during his first attempt at wrestling the Bay-area seat away from Pelosi.
