…because that’s what she’s going to be in a couple of years.
Angle recently announced that she will run for Congressmember Dean Heller’s congressional seat (Heller is running for disgraced Senator John Ensign’s seat). I think she’ll win it. Yes, there will be a contested primary, but if anything that helps Angle, who can always rely on the Second Amendment Remedies/Off-Their-Medication/Scientologist faction in the GOP to get her the plurality she needs to win the primary.
And unlike her 2010 Senate campaign, when she ran against a sitting Senate Majority Leader in a purple state, Nevada’s Second Congresional District is quite conservative: it has never elected a Democrat (albeit with only a 30-year history). Its Cook PVI is R+5, which is on the outside of being winnable; so conceivably, in a very good Democratic year, it could be won. But 2012 doesn’t figure to be that: Obama will probably pull through and the Dems will gain House seats, but nothing like 2006 or 2008.
So get used to it: Congreswoman Sharron Angle. Remember how to spell “Sharron.” Also “insane,” “unhinged,” “bats**t,” and other appropriate adjectives. Every time we think that the Republicans can’t get crazier, they surprise us yet again.
