    Nevada conservative Sharron Angle, who lost a high-profile bid to oust Democratic Sen. Harry Reid in 2010, filed paperwork Friday to make an encore run for his soon-to-be-vacant U.S. Senate seat. The tea party darling said she registered in Carson City after months of testing the water and hinting at a possible bid. Her move adds another primary opponent for the Republican frontrunner, three-term Rep. Joe Heck, and could throw a wrench in Republicans’ hopes to claim the seat over Reid’s endorsed candidate, former Democratic Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto. […] Democrats have salivated over the prospect of Angle entering...

  • Sharron Angle considering run against RINO for Harry Reid's seat

    Sharron Angle, who was vilified for running against Harry Reid in 2010 as a Tea Party conservative, is considering a comeback now that Harry Reid, having suffered a political black eye by losing the Senate, is retiring in 2016. The only problem is that she would have to run against the establishment-backed GOP candidate, Joe Heck. Joe Heck gets an "F" from like Harry Reid! He voted to fully fund Planned Parenthood's baby chop shops, voted to give Obama fast-track trade authority, voted against killing Obama's illegal amnesty for aliens, and voted to support keeping John Boehner as speaker,...

    Last week, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush announced his intention to "actively explore" a run for president. That announcement spurred spasms of joy in some segments of the Republican Party who have been itching for an effective counter to the enthusiasm of the grassroots right. Those Republicans -- largely coastal donors who scorn social conservatives as rubes, and shun the supposed fiscal extremism of the tea party -- have been searching for a candidate who will buck the base on immigration, who doesn't mind hand-in-glove corporatism, and who, most of all, feels the same way they do about the grassroots....

    Who has more pull and power Obama or Harry Reid? I will never forget with just a few weeks before the 2010 Nevada Senator race between Angle and Reid... For weeks, Sharron was up around three points, but "magically" Dirty Harry wins by almost 6 points. How could of this happened within 24 hours prior to the "vote?" I lived in Reno at the time, NO ONE liked the bum. I could have maybe see a squeaker for Harry, but to win by 5 plus points demonstrated the power of corruption. IF Harry has this much power, count on O'Bummer...

    When Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin went on television last weekend and uttered the words "legitimate rape," veterans of the Sharron Angle campaign had a collective flashback, PTSD-style. Angle, the Republican Senate candidate who ran against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in 2010, is best remembered for out-there statements like suggesting that "Second Amendment remedies" might be necessary to restore liberty. Her loss to Reid helped ensure that the GOP would fall short of the Senate majority in the midterm elections. Angle's candidacy is a case study in the ability of a deeply flawed candidate to squander an otherwise winnable...

    For what it's worth, former Tea Party Senate candidate Sharron Angle today endorsed Rick Santorum for president: Angle, a tea party favorite who failed in her 2010 bid to unseat Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, praised Santorum’s character in a statement released Thursday by his campaign.“He is a strong fiscal and social conservative who stands on principles above politics,” Angle said in the release. “His continuous opposition to Amnesty, Obamacare, the bail-outs, and cap and trade are a perfect fit with our main street Tea Party movement.”Santorum said her backing will be a “terrific boon to our campaign as...

    Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid today issued the following statement observing the end of the Iraq War: “The end of the Iraq War marks a historic day in our country. I commend President Obama for keeping his promise to remove all American troops from Iraq by the end of this year. After nine years of conflict, this is the right decision at the right time.  “Our experience in Iraq has left us humbled by the strategic miscalculations that made the war more difficult and costly than necessary, but also proud of the overwhelming valor and courage displayed by...
  • McCain vs. the Tea Party

    Mr. McCain mocked Tea Party-allied Republicans in the House for believing — wrongly, he said — that President Obama and Democrats will get the blame for a default if Republicans refuse to increase the nation’s debt ceiling. By that flawed logic, “Democrats would have no choice but to pass a balanced budget amendment and reform entitlements and the Tea Party Hobbits could return to Middle Earth,” he said, quoting a Wall Street Journal editorial. “This is the kind of crack political thinking that turned Sharron Angle and Christine O’Donnell into G.O.P. nominees,” he jeered, referring to two losing Tea Party...

    Nevada state Treasurer Kate Marshall (D) announced Wednesday she is running in the 2nd district special election. “Nevadans deserve a voice in Congress that will fight for middle class families, and that’s what I intend to do. I’ll work every day to create jobs in northern Nevada and win the fight to control runaway spending in Washington,” Marshall said in a statement. Marshall has Democratic company in the free-for-all contest to replace Rep. Dean Heller (R), who is expected to resign his seat in the coming days and then be sworn in Monday to fill the remaining term of former...

  • Video: ‘Older White People’ Are Bigots, Says MSNBC’s Chris Matthews

    01/17/2011 2:14:16 PM PST · by · 50 replies
    Appearing on MSNBC, Monday, to promote his new special on Barack Obama, Chris Matthews attacked “older white people” for still holding bigoted feelings against the first African American President. Lavishing praise on younger Americans, he added, “And I think that’s a generalization and I’ll stick with it. I think younger people do not see race as an obstacle.” He then touted the “non-judgmental” attitude of Obama voters, fawning, “In fact, they say [race is] irrelevant and don’t even notice it, whereas older people notice it all the time.” If “older white people” are focused on race, Matthews could certainly be...

    You might be seeing a lot of Eric Fuller over the weekend. He’s one of the people injured in Jared Loughner’s shooting rampage, taking rounds in the knee and back. He’s also a vicious bigot, and because he’s elderly and a military veteran, the Left is going to fall in love with him. Fuller gave an interview with the Democracy NOW radio show, in which he said of the Tucson shootings: “It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle, and the rest got their first target.” Presumably he’s not talking about Judge John Roll. “Their wish for Second Amendment activism has...

    Washington Post ^ | 1/13/11 | Steve Tetreault - Stephens Washington Bureau
    Sharron Angle on Wednesday rejected criticism that she shares responsibility for creating a charged political atmosphere that might have contributed to the mass shooting in Arizona. "The despicable act in Tucson is a horrifying and senseless tragedy and should be condemned as a single act of violence by a single unstable individual," Angle said in a statement that laid blame solely on the man authorities said attempted to assassinate Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., on Saturday. Six people were killed; Giffords was among the wounded. Angle said efforts to blame her or other Tea Party figures in the attack were "irresponsible."...

    A wounded survivor of the Tucson shooting that critically injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is blaming Sarah Palin, House Speaker John Boehner, Fox TV host Glenn Beck, and former Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle for the tragedy. “It looks like Palin, Beck, Sharron Angle and the rest got their first target,” Eric Fuller said in an interview with Democracy NOW. “Their wish for Second Amendment activism has been fulfilled — senseless hatred leading to murder, lunatic fringe anarchism, subscribed to by John Boehner, mainstream rebels with vengeance for all, even 9-year-old girls,” he added, referring to the death of Christina...
  • Video: Dupnik Says Recent Blame Game For Shooting Tragedy Is His ‘Legal Responsibility’

    01/11/2011 8:46:29 AM PST · by · 18 replies
    Sheriff Dupnik appeared on MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Oblermann and said he has a ‘legal responsibility’ to place blame for the shooting tragedy in Tucson, Arizona. It just so happens he’s blaming the likes of Sharron Angle and Sarah Palin for being responsible for the massacre. During the interview he also tries to explain how he’s not politicizing the situation. Automatically placing blame on ‘right-wing rhetoric’ seems as if it pretty much fits the bill for politicization of a tragedy.

    Citing no evidence that the Arizona shooter had ever heard of Sharron Angle of Nevada or her remarks about Second Amdendment remedies, a top Dem leader has nevertheless tied the shootings to Angle's statement. Rep. James Clyburn, third in the House Dem leadership, made his allegation on Fox News Sunday today. He began with a general statment, then made a specific accusation. JAMES CLYBURN: I think that what is happened here is that the vitriol has gotten so elevated until people feel emboldened by this. And people who are a little less than stable, and people aren't thinking for themselves...

    It’s widely recognized that in the marquee 2010 Senate race, Majority Leader Harry Reid ran a nearly flawless, textbook campaign, an operation so extraordinary that it enabled him to defy an almost certain political death. It turns out he got some inadvertent inside help. Interviews with Nevada and Washington Republicans familiar with the campaign of Reid’s GOP opponent, Sharron Angle, describe a not-ready-for-prime-time effort that was equally astonishing — a model of dysfunction that was as bad as Reid’s campaign was good. At the center of it was Terry Campbell, Angle’s closest adviser, who held the title of campaign manager....
