Sharron Angle LOLZ

19 Jun

My spidey senses are tingling, the LOLZ are strong in this one. I have a feeling that this will be the first in a series of LOLZ from Sharron Angle on this blog.

Sharron Angle was plucked from obscurity 10 days ago when she defeated Sue Lowden in the Nevada Republican primary election for Senate. She will go head to head with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in November. The information about Angle came gushing through the flood gates moments after she clinched her nomination. Her views on things such as Social Security and Prohibition (wait, that’s an issue?) are as archaic as they are disconnected and frightening.

This week, Angle held a “Retirement Party” for Senator Reid at Stoney’s in Las Vegas. There she was interviewed by Nathan Baca from KLAS Channel 8 News who asked her to elaborate on her views on Social Security reform. She answered along her talking points talking about “saving” Social Security by taking a free market approach. When the logic of putting Social Security into the stock market in light of the recent volatility Angle fired back at Baca, “Now, you’re putting words into my mouth from Harry Reid. I want you to be very clear on this. I’m here to save Social Security… Harry Reid is here to bankrupt Social Security.”

When pressed further on other issues that she enumerated on her own website, Angle turned and walked away from Baca. A campaign representative later called Baca an “idiot.”

I feel like I need to help the Angle campaign out a little on this one. Nathan Baca is what we call a “reporter,” which is defined as “a person employed to gather and report news, as for a newspaper, wire service, or television station.” A reporter may also be known as a “journalist.” An “idiot” is defined as an utterly foolish or senseless person. Baca is just doing his job, he’s doing a good job of it too. If you want this campaign to go well for you, you may want to distance yourself from the second definition and be nicer to the first.

Til next time, I’ll be looking forward to more LOLZ.
