Crazy Candidate of the Day

Today's Crazy Candidate:

Nevada's Sharon Angle!

Seriously insane Nevada Tea Partier Sharron Angle is running against Harry Reid for the US Senate.

And if she can't beat him in the voting booth, well there's always another option:

“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.”

Yep, like the old saying goes, if you can't beat him, call openly for his assassination!

And she knows what to do about the oil disaster in the Gulf:

QUESTION: You have been in support of onshore drilling in the United States as well as offshore drilling, are you rethinking that policy with what is going on in Louisiana?

ANGLE: No. I think that what happened in Louisiana was an accident. They're cleaning it up. We need to go forward and talk about prevention and not about whether we keep it out all together. We know that lot of the problems that have been caused for us with foreign policy and even with our own gas prices here domestically going up is our dependence upon foreign oil.

We have oil reserves and petroleum reserves that we should tap into. And that's a policy that we really need to look at as a nation. How do we deregulate enough to invite our industries to come back into the United States and quit outsourcing their business? (source)

Also, she believes that God has a plan for everyone. Unfortunately, that plan may include your being raped and impregnated,(audio) but you can't win 'em all!

And she understands about families. She has a well-though-out stance on family issues:

"Right now, we say in a traditional home one parent stays home with the children and the other provides the financial support for that family," she said. "That is the acceptable and right thing to do. If we begin to expand that, not only do we dilute the resources that are available, we begin to dilute things like health care, retirement, all the things offered to families that help them be a family."(huffpo)

Sure, it's incoherent, but what has Harry Reid ever done about the dilution of resources? Hmm?

So when you go to the polls this election season, and you live in Nevada, consider Sharron Angle for US Senate! Then hold your nose and vote for Harry Reid.

I don't know how old this ad is, but I'm guessing that wouldn't be a very convincing argument today.
