As Donna points out over at Right Angles, the scuttlebutt is that Steven Spielberg is advising Nancy Pelosi on refashioning her, and Democrats’, image.

Spielberg specializes in fiction, special effects, razzle dazzle, and fooling audiences into believing the fake is real. This says a lot about Pelosi’s Congress:

[B]ehind closed doors, [Pelosi] is laboring to refashion the image of House Democrats – as well as herself.

Lawmakers say she is consulting marketing experts about building a stronger brand. The most prominent of her new whisperers is Steven Spielberg, the Hollywood director whose films have been works of branding genius. Lawmakers said Spielberg has not reported to Pelosi with a recommendation.
