Surprise, surprise! Sharrontology is coming out of her bunker!
And look where she landed. Oh, jeez...
Ralston played back the audio, with accompanying on-screen text, from an interview that Angle gave with a conservative talk radio host back in January. "You know, our Founding Fathers, they put that Second Amendment in there for a good reason, and that was for the people to protect themselves against a tyrannical government. And in fact Thomas Jefferson said, it's good for a country to have a revolution every 20 years," Angle said. "I hope that's not where we're going, but, you know, if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies and saying, my goodness, what can we do to turn this country around? I'll tell you, the first thing we need to do is take Harry Reid out."
"A lot of people think that's pretty outrageous rhetoric," Ralston said, referring to the language about "take Harry Reid out," and asked Angle whether she thought President Obama was a tyrant comparable to King George III.
"Well, I was speaking broadly, as you saw, about the Constitution, and that was the context of that rhetoric," Angle responded. "I admit that was a little strong to say 'take him out,' but you know what I meant. I meant take him out of office, and taking him out of office is a little different. I changed my rhetoric, to 'defeat Harry Reid.'"
Ralston continued to ask Angle whether she had gone too far.
"You know what, Jon," Angle responded, "I think it's interesting that we're nitpicking on all the little topics that Harry is putting out there."
"Harry Reid didn't put this out there," an excited Ralston said. "You put it out there."
So this is the new Sharrontology? Try to explain away dangerously radical positions, then try to blame everything on Harry Reid? Whatever happened to that 'conservative value" of personal responsibility? Why is Sharrontology Obtuse Angle now morphing into... SUZY LOWDOWN??!!
But wait, whatever happened to that "conservative value" that is personal responsibility? Did Suzy Lowdown and Bobby Uithoven miss that day's lesson in "GOoP Talking Points 101"? How is Ms. Suzy pulling herself up by her own bootstraps when she wants Harry Reid to tie them for her?
See how ridiculous they really sound? Again, Suzy Lowdown refuses to acknowledge that her crazy words wrecked her own campaign. And instead of realizing that the teabaggers are abandoning her in droves to go for "real deal" Obtuse Angle, she'd rather just try one more "Hail Mary Pass" to save her rapidly collapsing campaign by blaming it all on Harry Reid.
Well, we can now rest assured that personal responsibility wasn't covered in Sharrontology's "GOoP Talking Points 101" class... But "pass the buck" and "no matter what, blame everything on Reid" were. And now, Sharrontology is trying to blame Harry Reid for all the things she said (that's all, folks, and no one ever forced her to say those things!) and for the media asking questions on where she really stands on the 2nd Amendment, abortion, taxes, Yucca, Social Security, and more. Come on, haven't we seen this tried before by Suzy Lowdown?
So is this the new campaign slogan? "Sharrontology Obtuse Angle: Even Crazier than Suzy Lowdown, But It's All Reid's Fault."
