⁄⁄Qué Pasta?!

Anyone surprised that this ad, suggesting that Latinos stay home and not vote, was supposed to play in Nevada in Spanish on Univision? Anyone surprised that it is from a Republican 527 Group? Anyone surprised that the 527 group has the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth people behind it?

A group called Latinos for Reform tried to make an $80,000 ad buy, but Univision turned them down. Perhaps Sharron Angle can get it re-recorded in Asian.

Sharron Angle and Sharia: Oops

Hahahaha, nothing gets past Sharron Angle, she has a mind like a bear trap. Literally.

Remember last week when Sharron Angle, the Teabagger from Nevada and religious whackjob said that two cities in the country already operated under Sharia Law? Me neither!

We’re talking about a militant terrorist situation, which I believe isn’t a widespread thing, but it is enough that we need to address, and we have been addressing it,” Angle said according to audio of the rally obtained by the Washington post. “My thoughts are these. First of all, Dearborn, Michigan, and Frankford, Texas, are on American soil, and under Constitutional law. Not Sharia law. And I don’t know how that happened in the United States.

Anyway, some noob at CNN decided to investigate the claim that Dearborn, Michigan and Frankford, Texas are under Sharia law, the sacred law of Islam. Guess what they found?

Frankford Texas doesn’t exist, and the Mayor of Dearborn is pissed off.

Son of… In His Own Words

If I lived in Arizona Nevada and had the vote, even though Sharron Angle is beyond nuts, I’d vote for her. Better nuts than this disgusting, cynical, partisan Washington kabuki dance, when people’s lives and dignity are at stake.

Andrew Sullivan

(But ya aren’t Blanche, but ya aren’t. What as assrocket, the very openly gay Andrew Sullivan, long-time AIDS survivor would vote for an Evangelical nutcase who would — if she had her way — have him stoned in the desert. And that’s all you need to know about the Death Cult of the GOP, and it’s Kabuki Theater bowing and scraping before the people that would do them real harm via policy.)

Sharron Angle Wins Quote of the Day!

I’m sure that they probably said [that they were too conservative] about Thomas Jefferson and George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. And truly, when you look at the Constitution and our founding fathers and their writings, the things that made this country great, you might draw those conclusions: That they were conservative. They were fiscally conservative and socially conservative.

Yeah, Sharron, you self-aggrandizing nut job. The most radical free-thinkers of their generation (or of many other generations, too), who successfully waged a war against the system, a King, to create a democratic republic without a state-sponsored religion, were conservatives, just like you.

The kitchen skills of Sharron Angle

Well, give Sharron Angle credit for knowing her opposition and that there is no issue, no principle, nothing for which he will fight:

As the Majority Leader, Harry Reid is usually President Obama’s mouthpiece in the U.S. Senate, and yet he remains silent on this issue. Reid has a responsibility to stand up and say no to the mosque at Ground Zero or once again side with President Obama—this time against the families of 9/11 victims. America is waiting.

To which Harry Reid’s office responded:

The First Amendment protects freedom of religion. Senator Reid respects that but thinks that the mosque should be built some place else.

– Reid spokesman Jim Manley

I hope she saves his spine for stock.

The Sharia of Sharron Angle

Just in case you missed it, besides wanting to outlaw all abortions under all circumstances, Angle wants prayer in school, gay rights over-turned, and the Clergy to make endorsements from the pulpit.

No word on those slimming burquas or when the stoning of adulterers will start, but Nevada has a lot of rocks and high unemployment. I think I smell a growth industry!

Sharron Angle knows how to hold a press conference

You walk out after the introduction and before the first question. Allegedly she spoke for a couple of minutes prior to this about cutting taxes (what else?) and then the moderator speaks as you see here.

But actually, it might be uncannily smart: as soon as she opens her mouth, she shoots herself in the foot. Did I just mix my metaphors?

Sharpshooter Sharron Angle

Remember a couple of weeks ago, Nevada’s Favorite Teabagger Lady, Sharron Angle suggested killing Harry Reid with guns? Me neither!

But anyway she’s taking it back. Here’s what she said initially:

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 and saying, my goodness, what can we do to turn this country around? I’ll tell you, the first thing we need to do is take Harry Reid out.

And now here’s how she is marketing it:

I admit that was a little strong to say ‘take him out,’ but you know what I meant. I meant take him out of office, and taking him out of office is a little different. I changed my rhetoric, to ‘defeat Harry Reid.’…

“…with knives. Knives would do,” Angle did not conclude.
