  • Jackass: The Candidacy

    10/21/2011 6:19:55 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | October 21, 2011 | John Ransom
    I’m in Las Vegas today at the Western Republican Leadership Conference getting ready to participate in a panel on tax reform. It’s only fitting then that I reflect back on one of the few losses the GOP suffered in 2010 races, Harry Reid versus Sharron Angle, battled out mostly in and around Las Vegas. That race is, in my opinion, one of the reasons why the Democrats managed to hold on to the US Senate. Resources that could have gone to other places were used up in a futile race with a candidate not ready to man up and learn...
  • How Harry Reid Won Re-Election

    CNS News ^ | Michael R Blood
    Las Vegas (AP) - Republicans said for months that if the Nevada Senate race was a referendum on Harry Reid, the unpopular Majority Leader would lose. Reid didn't let that happen. He adeptly painted opponent Sharron Angle as an extremist immediately after she won her primary -- and proceeded to make the contest as much about her awkward and unconventional statements as Reid's own troubles. Then he deployed his secret weapon: a powerful turnout machine that brought Democratic and Hispanic voters out to the polls in droves. Reid's relentless TV ad assault against Angle and his powerful get-out-the-vote effort were...
  • Confirmed: Hawaii Department of Health is Aiding and Abetting Obama

    We already know that Barack Hussein Obama Soebarkah AKA Barry Soetoro is not constitutionally eligible to be president, no matter where he was born. I also think it is very critical the fraud at all levels is exposed and dealt with. This includes the Obama COLB that was first posted online by the Daily KOS and then by Obama's FightTheSmears website, which both still have the forged COLB posted. Many in the Media claim, including the obots, that the short-form COLB is the only document obtainable by the Hawaii Department of Health, but, as proven here, that is not true...

    Whenever the GOP wins an election, the Democrats and the media always go through predictable stages of recrimination, self-pity and bizarre rationalization. The most amusing of them is when liberals question why they’re so, well, just so darned nice. “If we were to take the gloves off – to fight dirty, like our opponents, we’d win,” liberals tell themselves. Why must we be the Nancy Kerrigan to the Republicans’ Tonya Harding? This, of course, is nonsense. Democrats are original bearers of guns to knife fights. They are the true believers, and their ends justify their means. To liberals, conservatives aren’t...

    Nevada GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle’s campaign attorney wrote a fundraising letter to supporters on Tuesday, charging that Democrat Harry Reid “intends to steal this election." In a fundraising plea to supporters, Cleta Mitchell wrote, "As Sharron Angle's campaign attorney, I am sorry to report that the Democrats and their cronies are up to their same old tricks(Snip) The letter alleges that the Reid campaign offered free food at voter turnout events and that “Democratic allies such as teachers unions are offering gift cards in return for a vote for Reid” — though the letter does not list specific events

    Nevada GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle said at a recent event with Hispanic high school students that some of the students in attendance looked “a little more Asian” to her. Angle has landed herself in hot water for a previously reported remark from the event, in which she claimed that she was “not sure” whether her illegal immigration ad featured Hispanics. But on Monday morning, the Las Vegas Sun’s John Ralston pulled another nugget from the meeting — Angle said that some of the members of the Hispanic Student Union looked like they might be Asian. “So that’s what we...

    The problem with a demonization strategy based on voter unfamiliarity with a candidate is that the candidate usually gets a chance to either confirm or destroy the impression before an election takes place. Harry Reid gambled on painting Sharron Angle as a nut, but in the end it was Reid who struggled to explain himself in the only debate in the Senate race for Nevada. Veteran political analyst Jon Ralston, no fan of Angle, declares her the winner simply by showing Nevadans that she was far from the portrait of a lunatic that Reid had painted: Angle won because she...

    Pay-to-play, in what was promised to be the "most ethical Congress evah." The 527 Harry Reid Votes will shortly file an ethics complaint against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. The complaint alleges that Reid violated “the Senate Rules of Conduct by accepting certain contributions from the top executives of a federal government contractor,” according to a draft of the letter to be sent to the Select Committee on Ethics. At issue is over $100,000 of campaign contributions made by Nevada defense contractor Arcata Associates to both Reid and the Nevada Democrat Party. The small Nevada defense firm recently...

    LAS VEGAS -- In the ugliest ad so far in Nevada's contentious Senate race, Republican Sharron Angle accuses Democrat Harry Reid of helping to put Viagra in the hands of child molesters. The TV spot is the latest in a string of scare-tactic ads flooding the Nevada airwaves in the final weeks of the dead-heat contest. Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, has portrayed Angle as extreme and crazy, using her own words and policy positions to try to undermine her credibility. But that strategy has not pushed him forward in the polls. A recent wave of inflammatory attack ads has...

    LAS VEGAS – U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle told a crowd of supporters that the country needs to address a "militant terrorist situation" that has allowed Islamic religious law to take hold in some American cities. Her comments came at a rally of tea party supporters in the Nevada resort town of Mesquite last week after the candidate was asked about Muslims angling to take over the country, and marked the latest of several controversial remarks by the Nevada Republican.

    Republicans are growing increasingly frustrated with Sharron Angle and her lackluster campaign to unseat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), fearing she is jeopardizing what they had long viewed as a sure pickup and costing them a chance to reclaim the majority. Senate Republicans quietly acknowledge that Angle's controversial views on some issues remain a political liability. But the former Nevada Assemblywoman's larger problems are a progression of unforced errors stemming from a lack of campaign experience and an amateurish staff incapable of offering her the necessary guidance. However, Angle has proved to be adept at fundraising, corralling $2.6 million...

    Reno, NV- Fresh off the news that Nevada overtook Michigan for the highest Unemployment rate in America, new unemployment numbers were released today showing that last place just sunk a little lower. Unemployment in Nevada hit 14.2 percent, a record high despite the passage of Majority Leader Harry Reid’s $787 billion stimulus package that was rammed through the Senate eighteen months ago. U.S Senatorial candidate Sharron Angle said “Harry Reid likes to brag that ‘no one can do more,’ and if you’re one of the small businesses feeling besieged by this current economic climate or one of the nearly 200,000...

    The good news for Republicans who want to see Harry Reid defeated is that he just denied that illegal immigrants do construction work in Nevada, people are renouncing him on their deathbed, and here’s his percentage of the vote in the last fourteen polls: 43, 40, 40, 40, 37, 42, 38, 40, 40, 42, 41, 39, 41, 43. (Now that’s consistent.) The bad news for Republicans who want Reid gone that Sharron Angle’s lead ranges from ahead by 11 to trailing by 3. She usually leads modestly, around or just outside the margin of error. She’s the favorite, but for...

    LAS VEGAS, NV-- Thursday and Friday morning President Barack Obama took time away from his busy schedule of playing golf and suing the state of Arizona to fly to Las Vegas and host a swanky fundraiser for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. While Obama spoke to a crowd of lobbyists and special-interest groups, approximately 2,000,000 gallons of oil gushed into the Gulf of Mexico and thousands of workers continued to be displaced. Jerry Stacy, spokesman for U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle said yesterday, “Why was the President in Nevada at all? Shouldn’t he be more concerned about suing Arizona, a...

    Nevada Democrats today re-launched their version of GOP senate candidate Sharron Angle’s old campaign website. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s campaign yanked the website over the weekend after Angle’s lawyers sent a cease and desist letter, claiming Reid abused “proprietary materials” from Angle’s old site. This afternoon, however, the Nevada Democratic Party put the site back up, claiming protection under the First Amendment. “Out of an abundance of caution, the Reid campaign decided to temporarily remove the website in question while we investigated their allegations,” the Reid campaign said in a press release this afternoon. “Well, the phony legal threats...

    Either Tea Party favorite Sharon Angle has harnessed a massive amount of momentum, or Mason-Dixon has trouble getting a consistent poll out of Nevada. Their latest survey for the Las Vegas Review-Journal shows Angle jumping to a large lead in the Republican primary for the US Senate seat, continuing a trend that has been developing for several weeks. In a reversal of a poll from less than two weeks ago, the latest survey shows Sue Lowden as the only Republican losing to Harry Reid in the general election — and Danny Tarkanian as the best match against the incumbent: Continuing...

Nationwide political groups are aiming to keep Reid from winning re-election and they are using the fundraising event as a backdrop.

Former State Assemblywoman Sharron Angle joined the cause. She is currently considering running against Reid. She is asking for donations now but has yet to formally announce she's going to run.
