Sharron Angle, the anointed republican selected to run against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has a message for the Media. Be her friend and report only what she wants you to report, how she wants you to report it and by the way, allow her to promote her website asking for donations.
In an interview with Fox’s Carl Cameron, Mrs. Angle didn’t try to hide her incompetence. Instead, she put her foolery on full display when asked about why she was avoiding the media. Mrs. Angle replied that she wanted the press to be her friend. Then, with a total lack of shame for herself and the office she’s running for, Mrs. Angle went on say:
“We wanted then [the press] to ask the questions we want to answer so that they report the news the way we want it to be reported, and when I get on a show and I say ‘send money to Sharon Angle Dot Com…’”
And that is the debt of Sharron Angle. She is running for Harry Reid’s job, but as it turns out, campaigning is not her strong point. What Sharron Angle should consider is simply running, for that is what she does best.
Want to see Angle in a 100 meters dash? Ask her a question about anything, like policy decisions she would implement, or what’s the name of the title she seeks in the senate, or something like what’s the weather like today? I guarantee you that before the words come out your mouth you’ll be talking to yourself.
