Sharron Angle Is Running For US Senate Again [VIDEO]

From the Las Vegas Sun:

Sharron Angle, who made a famously unsuccessful bid for U.S. Senate in 2010, is running for the seat again. Angle filed late Friday in Carson City as a Republican candidate for the open seat of outgoing U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev. Angle, a Tea Party darling, had faced Reid in 2010 after winning the GOP primaries and lost to him.

This time around, the GOP’s most prominent candidate is U.S. Rep. Joe Heck, R-Nev., who is also running. Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto, a former Nevada attorney general, is seeking the seat with Reid’s backing. In all, 18 candidates are running for the Senate seat, one of a handful nationwide that the GOP hopes to gain in the election.

More from Yahoo News:

Her move adds another primary opponent for the Republican frontrunner, three-term Rep. Joe Heck, and could throw a wrench in Republicans’ hopes to claim the seat over Reid’s endorsed candidate, former Democratic Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto.

“It was the clamor of the people,” Angle told The Associated Press on Friday about why she decided to run. “People would walk up to me in the grocery store. People would say, ‘I sure hope you run.’ People all over the U.S.”

Angle won the Republican nomination in a divisive three-way primary in 2010, then lost to Reid in the general election, 50 percent to 45 percent. She’s a former state assemblywoman who also lost a GOP primary for the U.S. House in 2006.

Democrats have salivated over the prospect of Angle entering the race because it would sidetrack Heck from his general election-focused campaign. They’ve sought for months to conflate Angle and Heck, even introducing a pair of parrot costumes to suggest the two repeat each other’s positions.

Six years ago we had tons of fun at Angle’s expense. More please.

    The GOP shitshow just keeps getting better and better.

    • Buford

      It’ll be funny only after this disturbingly-large portion of Americans stop voting for them. Until then, the GOP shitshow is a terrifying embarrassment.

      • TuuxKabin

        That hopefully won’t be a ‘terrifying reality’.

  • Sam_Handwich

    we’ll build a wall and chickens will pay for it!

  • Rambie

    Oh baby Jeebus, time hasn’t been good to her…

  • Sam_Handwich

    what else is she famous for…..the demon sheep ad? i can’t remember

    • hdtex

      That was Carly Fiorina.

      • Sam_Handwich

        oh ok. and she’s not a witch, either…that was someone else. 2010 was full of lunatics

        • TuuxKabin

          Ain’t she that crazy ass bitch with the holiday greeting card of her and the fambly holding guns, even the toddlers, with ammo as ornaments on the tree? Seems she had longer hair and bigger gazoombas.

          • TrollopeReader

            That Michele Fiore (sp?) … she’s running for the House, I think.

          • TuuxKabin

            Sounds familiar. She too tried a few other runs, no?

          • Octavio

            Yes. Her big fundraiser is tonight in Vegas. If we’re lucky the police will be called to arrest her.

          • Sam_Handwich

            i think a flow chart is being called for

          • get yer score card here – can’t know the women candidates without a score card: who’s the witch, who shook her finger in Obama’s face, which one wants to congress and make then squeal, Who has demon sheep, the one with gun family? git cher program here,

        • TrollopeReader

          That was the one from Maryland, I think. Maybe Angle can learn how to castrate things. That worked in Iowa.

          • TimCA

            Christine O’Donell (sic?) from Delaware

          • Octavio

            From Devilaware? A hah . . . it’s all beginning to make sense.

          • TrollopeReader

            yes, thank you. i knew it was one of those states….

        • Oh’behr

          I was hoping she’s the one who isn’t the witch. That one was sort of fun compared to this Angley character. She’s too frigging serious. Must be Mormon.

          • Octavio

            She’s a Baptist. Southern Baptist, to be exact.

          • TrollopeReader

            why am i not surprised?

          • Octavio

            Imagine how many rocks you have to look under to find Southern Baptists in Reno.

          • Oh’behr

            Ack, the worst. Thanks for the information.

        • Joe knows who I am.
      • TimCA

        And Tom Campbell (one of the few sane Republicans left in the Golden State) was the demon sheep……which apparently in right wing jargon is several shades worse than a RINO. lol!!

    • She’s infamous for trying to pass pro-Scientology laws and claiming Dearborn Michigan was ruled by Sharia law. In her Senate race, Angle was known for being breathtakingly ignorant and uninformed on nearly every subject. She’s in favor of abolishing Social Security and Medicare, repealing the PPACA (of course), and a 100% ban on abortions for any reason. She doesn’t think insurance companies should have to cover women’s healthcare, such as mammograms or routine OB/GYN exams. She also wanted the U.S. to withdraw from the United Nations and favors the Federal Marriage Amendment to abolish same-sex marriage rights.

      • another_steve

        Compared to Donald Trump, she sounds like an intellectual.

        • TuuxKabin

          sorta.

    • TuuxKabin

      demon sheep, that must be her ‘heathen name’ as compiled from that list somebody posted here the other day.

    • drbloor

      Wasn’t she the pay-your-doctor-with-a-chicken crackpot? It all blurs…

      • bkmn

        You are correct. it is difficult to keep the fundies straight – Angle hit the spotlight the same time as the witch O’Donnell from Delaware.

      • Ninja0980

        No, that was Sue Lowden with the doctor for the chicken garbage.

      • charemor

        I fail to see what the problem is. I pay my doctor with a chicken.

        • That_Looks_Delicious

          My plan has a 2 chicken co-pay, but then the insurance picks up any chickens beyond that.

    • Good Shot Green

      Someone called her “Obtuse Angle” which made me go ha-ha.

      -Math nerd

    • Have that rape baby and turn your lemons to lemonade.

  • Ugh…

  • Cackalaquiano

    Ugh. She looks like every sweet middle class white suburban mom. Why can’t hateful people be more uniformly easy to spot?

    • Judas Peckerwood

      Just goes to show that you can’t ever trust appearances.

    • TuuxKabin

      Not on my meanDar. Don’t know what it is, but hateful people set my meter off at fifty paces. Men and women. Something like the opposite of the eyes sharing the expression of the smile? There’s a sneer and dead zone in the eyes that give ’em away to me. But I’m not a trustful person.

      • Cackalaquiano

        Usually if I have any interaction with them I’ll detect the mean or crazy in about 5 seconds flat. Photos, of course, can be photoshopped.

  • Ninja0980

    Please pass the popcorn, this is going to be so much fun.

  • delk

    “People would walk up to me in the grocery store. People would say, ‘I sure hope you run.’

    I think they meant after they got into their cars and started revving their engines at you.

    • kaydenpat

      Ha!! Good one.

  • oikos

    Was this the chickens for checkups candidate?

    • bkmn

      Yup and she is still batshit crazy like Michele Bachmann.

      Somehow I had forgotten Reid was retiring. If this is correct, it is absolutely shameful that the HRC is supporting a Repuplican instead of a 100% approved gay-rights candidate such as Tammy Duckworth.

      • Octavio

        Probably because Tammy doesn’t throw as fabulous a cocktail party . . . with awards for everyone just for attending while wearing something fetching and sparkly. 🙁

      • charemor

        I have no idea if Reid is retiring or not, but as a resident of Chicago, I am PISSED at the HRC’s endorsement of Kirk.

    • Octavio

      Yet another reason never to give anything to the HRC. What the fuck are they thinking? Bipartisanship my ass! Burn the HRC down! Immediately!

    From the Vegas Sun article:

    Brothel owner Dennis Hof, accompanied by Caressa Kisses, filed at the secretary of state’s office Friday in Carson City as a Libertarian candidate for Assembly District 36, a rural area in Southern Nevada.

    Hof, 69, said he was motivated to run by the Legislature’s enactment last year of Gov. Brian Sandoval’s commerce tax that imposes a levy on businesses with $4 million or more of annual gross revenue.

    Now that’s someone who exemplifies today’s America!

    • Yixing’s Fluffer

      Like Hemingway’s six-word story, but Americanized: Brothel owner, aged 69, running for Senate.

      • coram nobis

        Too bad the former proprietrix of the Horse-Around Ranch, Wanda Lust, isn’t available to run. The U.S. Senate needs experienced candidates, as fee-for-service is what the Senators do.

    • TuuxKabin

      That’s the crazy ass bitch I’m confusing her for.

      • coram nobis

        I merely had to google “las vegas politician guns” to find her. You have to admit the Xmas card certainly put the war into “war on Christmas.” Too bad she isn’t running: she’d be the caboose on the circus train.

      • teedofftaxpayer

        No she’s running for the House of Representatives-Joe Heck’s seat.

    • Octavio

      She’s running for Congress, not the Senate. Still . . . it’s going to be an evil battle to keep this teatardista out of office. Grrrrrr!

      • coram nobis

        Pistol-packin’ Pasionaria.

        • Octavio

          More like pistol packin’ planaria. She’s about that intelligent. I’ve met round worms with better personalities.

    Heck displaced Dina Titus after her first two years representing Nevada. Fortunately, Dina is back in Congress, having won a different seat two years later. Sharon is a scary fucking bitch. Yes, in some ways it’s a great thing to have her scary loopy ass in the running, for it will take away from Heck’s voter base. But still, it’s all we can do to get the Dems to vote for Catherine Cortez Masto, who is a former Attorney General.

    Cortez Masto is one of the brightest candidates anyone could want for a Senator. Her father is Mexican and her mother is Italian. Smart, lots of empathy for fellow humans and not a raging out-of-control christofascist. And she’s got a history of being one hell of a litigator. Yet, for some reason she’s having a hard time getting the support she should expect. Heck, as a congressman, has been happy to back religious freedom legislation only to have bigger, more powerful Republican’ts tell him to back the fuck off. Yet, his mormon testimony of the gospel forces him to keep accepting the role of backing christofascist “family” shit that keeps creeping onto the Assembly docket in Nevada and in Congress. He’s a mormon with a billion mormon spawn. Like most physicians, he thinks he’s smart enough to do everything else in the world that requires more skill and education than he really has.

    Oy, life is hard here in the Great Silver State. We desperately need an anti Family Hates Gehys spray to keep the xitan tools down. We never used to have this problem in Nevada.

    • Ninja0980

      Masto didn’t help herself with the gay marriage briefing she filed.

      • Octavio

        Then by all means come to Nevada and vote for Sharon Angle.

        • Ninja0980

          Oh I would vote for Masto in a heartbeat, it is sadly just stuff like that hurts her with the Democratic base.

  • BearEyes

    I’m hearing a circus calliope. Welcome to the freak show!

  • teedofftaxpayer

    She’s as bad as Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Pallin and Michelle Fiore. If by some miracle Trump, Angle and Fiore gets elected this country is in deep trouble. Most might want to consider Canada. I hear they’re nice people up there.

    • Helen Damnation ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      And their leader is, well, hot as fuck! Love to see him nekkid!

      • Tor

        Bet your mind out of my gutter.

  • She must be into self-punishment or something. She is quite clearly not bright enough to organize a piss up in a brewery yet is willing to put herself out there for everyone to make a toss pot of her. Bizarre.

  • dcurlee

    So people all over the nation go to her grocery store

    • KnownDonorDad

      Apparently.

  • PLAINTOM

    Why does she go grocery shopping all over the US ?

    • Maybe it has something to do with why Lindsay Naegle can’t hold down a job.

      Lindsay Naegle: Hello, I’m your customer service rep, Lindsey Naegle.

      Marge Simpson: We’ve met you many times, Miss Naegle. Why do you keep changing jobs?

      Lindsay Naegle: I’m a sexual predator. Now. How may I best dispense with you today?

    • She’s shopping for all the newspapers Sarah Palin reads.

  • TimCA

    Different hairstyle
    Same stupid policies…
    Fail !!

    If she’s running as a teabagger, that makes her an obtuse angle.

    What’s wrong with her eyes? They look normal, which is not normal for people in her set. She’s had work done.
