How much further can a person can dig themselves into a pit of blind stupidity & heartless ignorance. Let's check in on Sharron Angle, shall we?
You know you're week isn't going to go well when you have to explain that you're really not a birther.
First Greg Sargent reported how Sharron Angle wouldn't say whether she's 'birther' or not
The WaPo reported that Sharron Angle confirmed she is in fact, not a birther. Right.
Nevada journalist Jon Ralston reports on his TV show that Sharron Angle's campaign Web site touts the endorsement of something called the Declaration Alliance, which questions Obama's eligibility to be president.
Even more amusing, though, is this nugget: Ralston says he can't get Angle's campaign to say one way or the other whether she's a birther. "She no longer answers her voicemail, and her press secretary's voicemail is full," Ralston says.
In an interview with Hot Air's Ed Morrissey, Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle firmly denies being a "birther," a term used to describe those who believe that President Obama was not born in the United States. Morrissey reports:The NRA might endorse Harry Reid? Get out!Earlier today, I spoke exclusively to Sharron Angle, the Republican nominee to challenge Harry Reid for the Senate seat in Nevada. In the past few days, rumors have swirled that Angle is a crypto-Birther. I asked her "flat out" whether she believed Barack Obama was born somewhere other than Hawaii, and she replied, "No. Is that flat-out enough for you?"
This is in stark contrast to remarks Angle made Thursday night in an interview on the radio show Libertarian Politics Live. During the interview, Angle was asked, point-blank, if she believed the president was "a legitimate president or a naturalized born citizen." Angle replied saying, "You know I think our Supreme Court has pretty much made that decision." An Angle spokesman denied that Angle was a birther or had ducked the question.
Angle's response also serves to rebut earlier reports that the endorsement of her campaign by the Declaration Alliance could serve as proof that she was among the birthers' ranks. A search for the endorsement on Angle's website turns up cached results but no active pages.
Via Salon.com: NRA to endorse Harry Reid? Conservatives, already angry at the gun lobby for dealing with Dems on the DISCLOSE Act, won't be happy
The NRA will negatively score lawmakers who vote to confirm Elena Kagan, even though she never said anything bad about guns. But! According to RedState's Erick Erickson, who brought out the bootleg Drudge siren and everything, the NRA is "leaning toward endorsing Harry Reid."Politico has more:
Why would the NRA do this? Because Harry recently bought them a fancy gun park in Nevada.
The right-wing Internet nuts are all enraged at the NRA these days, for things like occasionally supporting Democrats and for successfully lobbying for their right to continue electioneering. Erickson points out that the real gun lobby -- the fringey Gun Owners of America -- hates Reid and is working tirelessly to fire him, or at him.
The NRA isn't even denying this line of reasoning but says it hasn’t made a decision about whether to endorse Reid.
“The Second Amendment and the National Rifle Association are always one bad incident away from politicians like Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin exploiting their agenda of gun control,” said Andrew Arulanandam, an NRA spokesman.
Still, the fact that a Reid endorsement is even a possibility has conservatives buzzing.
“Sharron Angle has been a true patriot on Second Amendment issues in the Nevada Legislature, and Harry Reid both voted for every anti-gun nominee [Barack] Obama has put up and voted for the Brady bill, the assault weapons ban, etc.,” conservative blogger Erick Erickson wrote on Redstate.com. “People at the NRA and people in the Senate are telling me the NRA will be endorsing Harry Reid later this year and the only way to stop it is to be very vocal about it right now. So keep making sure they know it would be unacceptable.”
But I bet it was the endorsement from the always unhinged Pat Boone (see here, here, here, here & here) that must have truly made her week:
Citizens United Political Victory Fund says their mission is to assist a conservative candidate who shares Ronald Reagan’s vision of reducing the size of government, lowering taxes, cutting spending, promoting traditional family values, and keeping America safe. Their goal for the 2010 election cycle is to elect a candidate who will fight for conservative principles and challenge the agenda of the Obama Administration.
David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United said:
“This is a critical race, and that is why it is so important to nominate a true Conservative with the credibility to stand up to Senator Reid’s out-of-control spending and big-government ways. Sharron Angle is a strong candidate with impeccable Conservative credentials, and I am proud to endorse her for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate.”
Today, Pat Boone officially endorsed Sharron Angle’s GOP bid to replace Harry Reid in the United States Senate. Boone, a famous singer and actor, is also well known as a political writer and commentator willing to tackle the tough conservative issues that matter to America.The NV Democratic Party points out that even Conservatives recognize what a terrible candidate Sharron Angle truly is:“I know a real conservative when I meet one” said Boone when asked to talk about his endorsement for the former 4-term Republican lawmaker. “I was there helping Ronald Reagan when he ran for Governor in California, and I followed him all the way to the White House. Today, I’m getting behind another Reagan-conservative, this time from Nevada. Her name is Sharron Angle, and she is the proven consistent conservative in this race who can retire Harry Reid and send him back to Searchlight to pound sand.”
Boone said that Nevadans enjoy a prime opportunity during the June 8th Nevada primary to elect a bona fide conservative capable of defeating Reid, someone with the moral fiber and determination to clean up the messes in Washington, D.C.
“Nevada cannot afford to elect a Republican who is watered-down or unproven…Nevada has the opportunity to elect a real Republican who is battle-tested, someone we know who is capable and willing to stand up for what’s right for our country. Sharron Angle is that person; she has a rock-solid record that conservatives can trust. That is why I am proud to support Sharron Angle for United States Senate, and I ask you to stand with me and support Sharron Angle as well.”
Conservative talk show host Heidi Harris lays into Sharron Angle and her campaign team on MSNBC. Per Harris, "This is not the city council; this is the big leagues."Mind you, this was all just in the past week.
Don't forget to check out Sharron's original website, you know, the one that she tried to scrub but that Harry Reid saved and posted on a new site, TheRealSharronAngle.com. , despite threats of those dreaded lawsuits mentioned above.
