President Obama’s in Las Vegas today, stumping for Harry Reid.
No doubt, he’ll be a big help to Senator Reid. But not as big a help as the Senator’s wacky opponent, Sharron Angle. She makes Michael Steele seem almost rationale.
Every time she opens her mouth, Angle puts her foot in it. Then she gets all upset when Senator Reid repeats her crazy remarks.
Like this week. She called the $20 billion compensation fund President Obama created for victims of the BP oil spill a “slush fund.” And accused the administration of “overreacting” to the worst oil spill in history.
She also insisted it was “not her job” as U.S. Senator to do anything about creating new jobs for Nevada. In fact, she said she wouldn’t lift a finger to help with a new hotel-casino planned for Las Vegas, which would create 22,000 new jobs.
And she’s also come out for getting rid of Social Security and dumping all the nation’s nuclear waste in Yucca Mountain.
Sharron Angle. She’s the worst of the Tea Party. And the best opponent Harry Reid could hope for.
When Senator Reid’s re-elected in November, he can thank President Obama. But, most of all, he can thank Sharron Angle.
That’s my parting shot for today.
