Angle For President? (No, Really)

Nevada Republican Sharron Angle appears to be undaunted by her loss to Speaker of the House Harry Reid.  She’s in Iowa, and she’s “not ruling out” a presidential run for 2012.

Via CNN:

Sharron Angle, the Tea Party-backed underdog who in last year’s midterm election came close to defeating Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, may be setting her sights on another high profile political job. Speaking at a premiere for a conservative Christian movie in Iowa Wednesday night, the Nevada Republican would not rule out a run for president, saying only, “I have lots of options for the future, and I’m investigating all my options,” according to the Des Moines Register.

The idea that Angle may be considering a run shows a true issue within the Tea Party movement — that all of its female faces seem to be interchangeable.  Sarah Palin sputters out fantastically over the Tuscon shooting, and suddenly Michele Bachmann is pushed into the spotlight.  Bachmann receives disastrous reviews over her State of the Union rebuttal and begins to embarrass the new political group, and suddenly Angle is making headlines that she might consider a run.

I can only expect that once Angle makes one of her traditional foot in mouth statements regarding immigration, abortion, health care or other issues that we will then learn that Christine O’Donnell is thinking about the presidency next.

And so on.

I don't care if an unknowledgeable woman wants to try for the Repub bid -- just confuse the situation mightily. She has as much chance as I do, to win. What voices is she listening to in her head?

It will be a show time, both parties...left or right…not every issue has clear division. To simplify complex issues will reduce your ability to recognize the true. I think support more and more independents candidates is a priority for next election.

Oh let her in the primaries... she says the funniest things. Speaking of the Tea Party did anyone else read the story in AlterNet about the tea party republican who swore to get rid of an energy tax?

There was only one problem he didn't have any plan to make up the budget shortfall his plan created. Edward Mangano wanted the Nassau County, New York Executive position. Now the Tea Party has another black eye.
