Report: Sharron Angle won't say whether she's 'birther'

Nevada journalist Jon Ralston reports on his TV show that Sharron Angle's campaign Web site touts the endorsement of something called the Declaration Alliance, which questions Obama's eligibility to be president.

Even more amusing, though, is this nugget: Ralston says he can't get Angle's campaign to say one way or the other whether she's a birther. "She no longer answers her voicemail, and her press secretary's voicemail is full," Ralston says.

Check it out:

Angle's campaign is so determined to freeze out the national and non-conservative press -- in order to avoid those pesky questions about Social Security and "Second Amendment remedies" -- that her press secretary isn't even checking messages?

Maybe they just don't know how to work that voicemail contraption.

There are so many challenges for the modern politician.

"She no longer answers her voicemail, and her press secretary's voicemail is full."

When a new voicemail comes in, it probably makes her feel worse than Stanley McChrystal feels when he gets voicemail from Richard Holbrooke.

LOL she supports Alan Keyes' "Declaration Alliance."

We have got to get those two together.

Orrin Hatch wants to drug test all those who are receiving unemployment compensation:

No net jobs, not a single one, during the eight years of Bush/Cheney, and the working age population seeking jobs expanded by millions, during the same period.

First The Republican policies made it impossible for people either to find a job, or keep the one they had, and then the Republicans want to drug test all those people they put out of work.

I guess, all those Joe The Plumber types, who keep on backing the party that creates Economic Depressions, probably should be tested for what the hell they are on. In the case of Joe The Plumber; he appears to keep overdosing on stupidity.

Grizzly Palin abandoned her post, just half way through one term, and yet:

Lots of people crave her endorsement of them, to be the ones to get the job done, and never abandon their posts.

Nothing like being endorsed; as someone the voters can rely on, by a flibbertigibbet half term quitter.

Congressman David Obey just issued a statement calling for General McChrystal's removal:


http://obey.house.gov/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=928:obey-calls-for-general-mcchrystals-removal&catid=82:2010-press-releases&Itemid=100018

""In recent history - which runs from General MacArthur, to General LeMay, to General McChrystal, we have seen a long list of reckless, renegade generals who haven't seemed to understand that their role is to implement policy, not design it.

"General McChrystal's comments are not the first time we've seen a General contemptuous of his civilian superiors. It isn't even the first time we've seen this General be contemptuous.

"But his comments, and those of his subordinates, dismissing the President, the Vice-President, General Jones, Ambassador Eikenberry, and Richard Holbrooke suggests that General McChrystal is locked into an 'everybody is wrong but me' approach to the world.

"When criticizing his civilian counterparts, McChrystal himself said, 'Here's one that covers his flank for the history books.' Pardon me, but I wonder if that doesn't summarize General McChrystal's approach here.

"If he actually said half of what is being reported, he shouldn't be in the position he is in.

"In apologizing this morning, McChrystal said his comments were "a mistake reflecting poor judgment and should never have happened." I couldn't have said it better myself.

"Anybody, including a U.S. Army General, is entitled to making a damn fool of themselves once. But General McChrystal hasn't appeared to learn from his mistakes.

"In London last October, he made a deliberate determination to try to box in the President, and the President was generous to give him another chance to prove that he understood the chain of command.

"His repeated contempt for the civilian chain of command demonstrates a bull headed refusal to take other people's judgments into consideration. That is damn dangerous in somebody whose decisions determine life and death for American troops and others in the region.

"That is something that we simply cannot afford!" "

'the architect' only raised $200.00 last month. Not enough to lay the foundation for a single hole outhouse.


Looks like it might be time for Karl Rove to adopt the Sue Lowden Chicken Bartering plan, and use them to fund his political operation.

From Politico:

"A new 527 group conceived by veteran GOP hands Karl Rove and Ed Gillespie and launched this year with predictions that it would raise $52 million to support Republican candidates has thus far failed to live up to the fundraising hype.

The group, American Crossroads, raised only $200 last month,"

Fox News Reports:

"South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford disappeared yet again, having fled the state without telling his constituents or lieutenant governor where he was headed, The State newspaper reported Tuesday.

His spokesman told the paper Sanford was on “personal time” and due back in the state capitol of Columbia later in the day.

The governor has law enforcement with him, said State Law Enforcement Division Director Reggie Lloyd, who refused to divulge Sanford’s location."

Sharron Angle: The Devolution of American Politics. Behold The Tea Party. If she won't talk to the Press when she wants to get elected, what's she going to do when her job is to represent all the people of Nevada. Will she only talk to people who agree with her??

GW Bush tried that and look what happened.

These are going to be remembered as the years that "Crazy" found its voice in American politics. People like this used to accept that they had no business in government. They're p-d off at the establishment, but they have no answers, so they dodge and they lie. I'll be glad to hopefully one day see the conversation of politics here in the US once again elevated above these ridiculous people.

@elby - I would just LOVE to hear your explanation for why the questions she's dodging are meaningless. They all have direct bearing on how she intends to govern, and as such are VERY meaningful.

Posted by: ubicomp | June 22, 2010 6:10 PM | Report abuse

@elby - The fact is that she (and you) don't like the way the answers to these relevant questions make your candidate look, so you attempt to marginalize their importance.

I don't care who runs against the man who defecated on our troops during time of war for cheap partisan political points.

We will not send him back to the Senate if this Nevadan has anything to say about it.

"Nevada journalist"

By identifying him as a "journalist" you are admitting that he has an ulterior, partisan motive to anything he writes.

Journalists cannot be trusted... this is obviously just a hit piece.

Well, I've got the answer to all of your questions, but you'll have to don your thinking cap, first: The reason "The perfect President's" Legend, documentation, and mixed ethnic background is at once simple, and yet complex.
I have lived a lifetime of espionage simply because of who my father was, former East German Ministerium fuer Staatssichheit (STASI) General Markus "Misha" Wolf, the head of their version of the CIA.
It's been touted that he was "Turned" in 1992, but that one secret I had to keep from 1977, when I was sent to West Germany to lure him out. It worked, and he was counter-run from then. It seemed his wish to go down in history for "Having perfected the use of sex as an espionage tool" was quite true. He had Celiac's Disease, why he was called "The man with no face," because that genetic disorder gives one a demeanor of being "Mentally Ill, Retarded, perverse" and is perfect for use as an undercover agent, or spy. This gluten-based dietary disorder is the basis for "The Manchurian Candidate" syndrome; I know, I've been run that way all my life.
Wolf impregnated several women who also had it, in order to run life-long progeny agents against specific American Institutions in a timely agenda that would have brought about American's collapse from within.
I was to be used in an historic inheritance legal loophole, the very right to own property. Barack Obama's usage is also obvious.
So why would this master spy of documentation, Legend-building, agent-running etc., leave Obama such gaping openings in his "History" as to be eventually his downfall? Well, like I say, Gen. Wolf was turned in 1977, not 1992, as publicized. While he was white, Obama's mother was a black Indonesian, or so I was told to remember.
In the meantime, the CIA and the Bushes have been very busy pre-empting the known agenda of downfall for our country, while letting the enemy think they were winning. That had the benefit of forestalling the invasion of Europe, for the hopeful economic downfall of we through CHICOM slave-labor Walmart dollars.
The American People have been presented with all the "Benefits" that Socialism could possible offer, short the Martial Law. Hopefully, tomorrow, the last day that SCOTUS sits, will be that day when they demand his BC, and deem him ineligible. Everything he's put into place or appointed will be reversed, and the living Presidents will have to run the country until special elections are called.
