Sharron Angle: A gift to Democrats from the political gods

Sharron Angle: Where does the Tea Party find these nut jobs? (AP)

Sharron Angle, the Republican nominee to challenge embattled Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for his seat in Nevada, could be a gift from the political gods for Reid’s campaign.

Angle, a favorite of the Tea Party, is a political fruitcake who believes fluoridation of water is a Communist plot, booze should be outlawed, mothers should stay home and take care of their families and the BP oil spill is no big deal.

Democrats are already chomping at the bit to expose Angle as a right-wing hack job with views so extreme that voters will be more than willing to stick with the lackluster Reid.

Angle supports a constitutional amendment to define marriage as only a union between a man and woman and once proposed a bill that would require doctors to advise women seeking an abortion that the procedure could lead to breast cancer — a controversial and dis-proven medical theory.

    Doug should probably read more than Huffington Post for his research and not rely on out of context material. One glaring difference, HuffPo was more kind than Doug in their depiction of Sharron. Doug could also have pointed out that not all Tea Party factions support Angle or anyone for that matter, but prefers to lump all Tea Party groups into one big group and call them racists and terrorists.

    Where’s the proof to back up your statements Doug?

    Do you appreciate having your water flouridated? If so you are very ignorant of the facts about flouridation of water supplies and the fallacy that promotes such destructive practices.

      OMG, not more fruitcakes and their Flouride conspiracy theories! I thought I was past all that garbage when I left the idiots in Utah! This is the modern world we’re dealing with, certainly we can get past something as childish as the issue of Flouride in our toothpaste and drinking water.

    Our precious bodily fluids are getting robbed by floridation -I advocate drinking pure grain alcohol.

    Instead of requiring “doctors to advise women seeking an abortion that the procedure could lead to breast cancer”, I would like to see a bill requiring doctors to advise women that the tiny baby growing inside of them will be ripped to pieces while during the abortion.
