Sharron Angle's No Questions Press Conference



Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle called a press conference and then refused to answer a question. Angle cancelled the press conference and ignored questions from reporters as she headed to a minivan.

The Las Vegas Sun describes the madness.


SPARKS — After more than a month dodging the press, Republican Senate nominee Sharron Angle on Wednesday invited reporters to an event intended to amplify her campaign message that lower taxes and less regulation are the only ways to spur economic recovery.

It was the first time since her primary victory that she had agreed to mingle with the media. Political observers speculated it might signal a shift in Angle’s post-primary strategy of using the media solely as fundraising mechanisms.

Alas, Angle’s more media-friendly moment was over almost as soon as it began.

In the warehouse of a family-owned clean diesel manufacturer in Sparks, Angle delivered a three-minute speech on her desire to permanently repeal the estate tax. When invited by the final speaker to stay and answer a few questions, she turned on her heel and rushed out a back door with a small cadre of staff members.


Angle (almost) makes Katherine Harris look like a polished candidate.

Hat tip to Joy-Ann Reid.

Tea Party idiots don't know how to back somebody with a brain. You really made your bed with these picks.

Number 1, from Rhode Island or someplace out east. An accountant who takes his ques from Glen Beck.
Number 2, Scott Brown, a lefty republican who voted for the Dodd-Frank Bill.
And now, a woman who is afraid to open her mouth because her brain won't catch up in time to save herself.

What that half-wit Reid couldn't do for himself, thanks to the TheTeaParty, Harry is going to get elected.

It's a good thing TheTeaParty is not endorsing anybody against Al Green or he'd win for sure.

STOP...please, before Harry invites ya'all to his victory rally. Yes indeed, Harry's dancing a jig.

Who needs Obama help when they got Tea Party opponents.

Angle is the gift that keeps giving to Reid.

Tea Party idiots don't know how to back somebody with a brain. You really made your bed with these picks.

Lindsey Graham asked Tea Party people how they <a href="http://pushingrope.blogspot.com/2010/07/quote-of-day.htmlwant to govern</a> if they win. None of them had an answer.
