Here's another one that could be tough for Sharron Angle to explain away: In an interview in January, Angle appeared to float the possibility of armed insurrection if "this Congress keeps going the way it is."
I'm not kidding. In an interview she gave to a right-wing talk show host, Angle approvingly quoted Thomas Jefferson saying it's good for a country to have a revolution every 20 years -- and said that if Congress keeps it up, people may find themselves resorting to "Second Amendment remedies."
What's more, the talk show host she spoke to tells me he doesn't have any doubt that she was floating the possibility of armed insurrection as a valid response if Congress continues along its current course.
Asked by the host, Lars Larson of Portland, Oregon, where she stands on Second Amendment issues, Angle replied:
"You know, 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. And 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 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."
Larson says Angle was floating the possibility of armed insurrection if Congress keeps it up under Reid et al.(continued)

I just sent her $100 that I couldn't afford to part with.
I’m with her....
Angle approvingly quoted Thomas Jefferson
Ok, I can understand quoting Thomas Jefferson, but to do so "approvingly?" OH THE HUGE MANATEE!!!
OMG!! She quoted Thomas Jefferson!! What will she do next?
Wapo, by taking Harry Reid out, Angle is referring to an electoral outcome, not an exercise of 2d Amendment rights.
While I agree with her, this is a killer problem that could really hurt her.
As a brother-in-arms said in those bad, bleak Carter years, “Where’s Lee Harvey Oswald now that we really need him?”
If this country has reached the point where these statements make her unelectable, then perhaps she is right about the 2nd amendment remedies.
Where do we send the money?
What a dumb comment.
Sounds like a plausible solution, but tricky!
And yet the WaPo never had a problem with Anita Dunn praising mass murderer Mao (or Obummer and his terrorist pal Billy Ayers).
Yeah. Whatever gave these people the idea that they have the right to alter or abolish the government just because they think that it is destructive to their liberty?
I sent her $50 and I agree with her. if Congress keeps going the way it is going what is the ultimate move? That final move to dictatorship is not something we Americans will accept if ever tried. The Dems seem convinced they can do anything they please.
Second, if you think advocating armed insurrection is a good political platform, well then we'll just have to disagree. It sounds like a loser.
Anyone who has ever pledged to uphold the constitution has implicitly agreed to the possibility of armed insurection should the government ever abridge the rights guaranteed by the constitution.
Everytime she repeats that she gets a new wave of donations.
Hey Greg? Barack Obama is close friends with a terrorist, went to a bigot reverend for 20 years, and believes inwealth redistribution. I`m not kidding.
