My 2012 Is Complete: Sharron Angle Is Running for Congress

My 2012 campaign season has been made — Nevada Tea Party icon Sharron Angle has announced she will be running for Congress, even if she hasn’t actually picked a race yet.

Via The Washington Post:

Nearly five months after her strong bid to unseat U.S. Sen. Harry Reid ended in defeat, Sharron Angle said Wednesday she’ll run for Congress again in an effort to “stop the liberal agenda.”

Angle told supporters via YouTube, Twitter and an e-mail that she will pursue one of Nevada’s four U.S. House seats in 2012.

“With your help we can once again change the country’s direction like we started in 2010,” she wrote in an e-mail to supporters.

Reid beat Angle by 6 percentage points in November after a bitter campaign. But she put up a strong fight, raising $14 million in one three-month fundraising quarter and finishing ahead in a series of polls.

In her announcement video Angle says she’s going to run because of the “unconstitutional agenda” of President Barack Obama.  By “unconstitutional” she no doubt means things like “unemployment benefits” and “public education,” just two of the many government programs she declared unconstitutional during her senate run.

Watch her announcement video below.

Oh, goodie, Palin, Angle and the "I'm not a witch" woman. Makes me cringe that I am also female. We need to beat these women from any office and bar them from our gender,

The gift that keeps on giving, like the Christmas fruitcake that is continually re-gifted because no one wants it. Hey, campaign slogan: Sharron Angle - the fruitcake you don’t want.

Poor Nevada; actually poor US that someone of this ilk can even be considered for public office.

On your questionaire I wish there was an option for "Hell, no!" - not just no as far as whether she should run again...the fact that she has followers at all boggles the mind.

They seem to have a never-ending supply of dimwits who want to live large on our dime while taking our quarters.
