    Hah. She's even named after the tribe the Anglos are named after.

    What did she mean by this, and do you agree?

    Our Founding Fathers, they put that Second Amendment in there for a good reason, and that was for the people to protect themselves against a tyrannical government,” Angle told conservative talk show host Lars Larson in January. “In fact, Thomas Jefferson said it’s good for a country to have a revolution every 20 years. I hope that’s not where we’re going, but you know, if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies.”

    EDIT - From the above:

    “The nation is arming,” she told the newspaper. “What are they arming for if it isn’t that they are so distrustful of their government? They’re afraid they’ll have to fight for their liberty in more Second Amendment kinds of ways. That’s why I look at this as almost an imperative. If we don’t win at the ballot box, what will be the next step?”

    Nevada Republicans were so stupid for nominating her. What an idiot!


    No wonder she lost an election that almost could not be lost.

    What did she do that was thought impossible? She pandered to the Tea Party and rode the wave that dozen of others rode. She gets as much credit as Christine O'Donnell. In other words, she gets no credit at all. Going into this last election cycle Harry Reid was the most hated man in politics. A monkey with a flag pin could have beaten him. Sharon Angle couldn't.

    Edit: On second thought she did do the impossible. She lost to Reid. So, I guess you were correct. (sorry, didn't read sh's comment).

    The thing is, most people don't give Reid enough credit - the frontrunner for the republicans was polling very well against Reid and then she fumbled and made a comment about her grandparents bartering chickens for healthcare.

    Reid actually pounced on that during the republican primaries and may have helped Angle get the republican win. That could have been the best move he made to get himself re-elected.

    Sharron Angle didn't make the "chicken's for healthcare" comment. That was Sue Lowden. Angle made a dozen other missteps though.

    whodey will be along soon. I remember him making fairly specific accusations of voting fraud and that Angle had, in fact, won the election.

    I didn't say that Angle made the comment.

    Sue Lowden WAS ahead of Angle in the polls until she did make the comment. Reid helped emphasize that comment and that helped Angle win the primary and hence helped Reid win re-election.
