Crazy Candidate Of The Day: our first two-time winner!

Today's Crazy Candidate is for the second time, Nevada's Sharron Angle!

Here's what Ms. Angle had to say during one of her super-rare appearances on the TV:
(with friendly FOX "news" guy Carl Cameron)

SHARRON ANGLE: We needed to have the press be our friend.

CAMERON: That sounds naive.

ANGLE: Well, no. We wanted them to ask the questions we want to answer so that they report the news the way we want it to be reported.

Wow! Do you really not get how this works? Do you honestly think that the press is supposed to be PR hacks for your campaign? I know that's what you're used to getting from FOX, but in the real world, reporters are supposed to ask the questions they think are important, not the ones you think you might help your campaign. The press is there to help us, not you. And by us, I mean the American public, the voters, your potential constituents. It is not their job to put softballs up on a tee for you. This isn't the Tonight Show, you're supposed to be able to handle tough questions. What are you, channeling Sarah Palin?

And legitimate reporters are sure as hell not supposed to let you solicit donations on the air.

I guess this explains why Sharron Angle won't talk to any press but FOX.

Hell, she won't even take questions at her own media events

Oh, and here's what happens when Angle does get legitimate questions:

How this woman is considered a legitimate candidate for the US Senate is beyond me.
