Sharron Angle: Nevada Senate frontrunner?

New polling out today show former Nevada Assemblywoman Sharron Angle surging to a lead in the Republican Senate primary, a rapid rise that establishes her as the frontrunner heading into the vote next Tuesday.

A new Suffolk University poll of 400 likely Republican primary voters shows Angle leading with 33 percent, with businessman Danny Tarkanian pulling in 26 percent and former state party chairwoman Sue Lowden taking 25 percent. The poll is the first showing Lowden falling behind Tarkanian, although the two are still within the 4.9 percent margin of error.

A Daily Kos/Research 2000 poll released this afternoon shows Angle with an even wider margin over her two rivals: she leads with 34 percent to Lowden's 25 percent and Tarkanian's 24 percent.

Angle's rise seems to have taken her opponents by surprise although Lowden is now working to gain back lost ground by attacking the former legislator on her past votes in the Assembly -- most notably an ad alleging that Angle backed a bill that would have allowed tax dollars to go toward a program giving massages to prisoners.

Those ads, according to sources familiar with the state of the race, have slowed Angle's momentum though it remains to be seen whether they have stopped it entirely.

Having seized the lead, Angle appears to be pursuing a classic four corners, run-out-the-clock approach. She has largely ducked media requests and giving little clue as to her whereabouts on the trail. Organizations backing her, meanwhile, have been buoying her with a surge in advertising as the race enters its final days; the Tea Party Express is spending nearly $100,000 on a new minute-long TV ad touting Angle's conservatism, and will be hosting a pro-Angle radio show tonight featuring Joe the Plumber, conservative radio host Mark Levin and others.

At issue is not whether Angle is the candidate to beat but rather who -- Lowden or Tarkanian -- is better positioned to do so.

Jamie Fisfis, an adviser to Tarkanian, said that the campaign's internal polling has shown results similar to today's Suffolk poll. Fisfis noted that Clark County (Las Vegas) conservatives are the dominant voting bloc among those who have already voted -- early voting began May 22 and ends tomorrow -- and that Tarkanian has an early lead among actual votes cast.

"I really do believe it's a two-way race right now," Fisfis said, noting that Lowden is "almost irreparably damaged."

But a GOP strategist close to Lowden's campaign contended that the race is still a dead heat.

"I think the state of the race is that it's dead even," the strategist said. "Assuming she wins on Tuesday, which I believe she's going to, in a close race, she will have been tested, taken a punch, gotten back up to fight, and will be fully ready to take on Reid."

The Reid forces have been buoyed of late by the ongoing struggle on the Republican side -- and are sure to be thrilled that the Senate Majority Leader is now ahead of all three potential GOP contenders in the Kos poll.

But, as we have noted before, Reid remains mired in the low 40s -- a difficult spot to be for any incumbent with close to 100 percent name identification. The Reid argument is that with a number of third party candidates filling the ballot in the fall, the anti-Reid vote, which is significant, would be fractured in a number of direction -- allowing him to win with somewhere in the 40 percent to 45 percent range.

The first few weeks after the Republican primary produces a winner will be critical for Reid. He must find ways to negatively define the GOP nominee in a lasting way. If he can't, the dynamic of the race may snap back to where it was a few months ago when Reid was lagging behind all of the potential GOP contenders.

Did you know Fox was partially owned by a Saudi prince, who dictates its content?


" Beck and his employerOn his television program this afternoon, Glenn Beck declared that Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the largest stockholder of Fox News outside of the Rupert Murdoch family, “flew … the plane into the trade centers.” Beck started his rant as a defense of Israel’s actions against the aid flotilla to Gaza, but eventually began hypothesizing about if a similar flotilla was sent to Manhattan by Saudi Arabia. Beck said this had already happened essentially, when Prince Alwaleed offered $10 million dollars to then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NY) in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

Beck repeatedly burst into moral outrage, demanding why people are held “to a different standard” and why the media refused to be “consistent” with its reporting. Of course, during his monologue, Beck never mentioned that the very Saudi Prince Beck accused of being behind the 9/11 attacks is a close friend of his own boss, Rupert Murdoch, or that Beck’s employment at Fox News is financed by that same Prince. Without a tinge of irony in his voice, Beck implored his listeners not to trust any offering of money from Prince Alwaleed, despite the fact his own salary depends on him."

Obama's people cheer -


but 411,000 of those jobs were temporary census jobs.


Obama's people look for someone they can call a racist.

THERE ARE REPORTS THAT OBAMA IS LYING ABOUT HOW MANY ACTUAL CENSUS JOBS THERE ARE.

IF THEY ARE REPORTING 431,000 JOBS CREATED

AND 411,000 OF THEM ARE CENSUS JOBS.

THAT MEANS ONLY 20K ARE PRIVATE SECTOR JOBS.


HOWEVER, IF OBAMA IS LYING ABOUT THE 411,000 JOBS IT IS FRAUD OF THE HIGHEST ORDER.

The last thing this country needs is the British voice of Tony Hayward on a tv commercial telling us how much he cares about America.


He wants his life back. That's it.

Meanwhile - Obama has YET TO ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR HIS PERSONAL FAILURES AT THE MMS OFFICE - AND THE LACK OF PROPER OIL RIG PROCEDURES WHICH OBAMA'S APPOINTEES WERE SUPPOSED TO OVERSEE.


It is Clear.

Meanwhile, the political pressures are building for Obama to give the nation what the MEDIA SAYS THE NATION REALLY NEEDS: A PHOTO OP OF OBAMA HUGGING A FISHERMAN.


You see- somehow the media is building up steam - building up pressure - because the NATION HAS NOT YET SEEN OBAMA HUG A FISHERMAN ON TV.


As if that will soak up all the oil in the few seconds it takes for that photo op to show up on every tv in the country.


No, it doesn't work that way.


The OIL IS MOVING TO SLOWLY FOR THE MEDIA TO CREATE ADEQUATELY COMMPELLING STORYLINES.


The Anchors have an hour each which they have to fill EVERY DAY.


The OIL IS JUST MOVING TOO SLOWLY FOR THE MEDIA STORYLINE-TELLING COMMUNITY.


They have to CREATE A STORY: Obama is not doing ENOUGH TO CREATE PHOTO-OPS.


What is WRONG WITH A OBAMA, HE MUST BE TONE-DEAF - HE JUST ISN'T DOING ENOUGH TO FILL THE MEDIA'S AIRTIME WITH PHOTO-OPS, STORYLINES AND DRAMA.

Maybe they could have a show-down between Hayward and Obama - some sort of SMACK-DOWN ON THE BEACH -


Obama can scream, "Look at this tar-ball"- and Hayward can pretend to care -


AND then Obama can scream - "you better care"


And Hayward can say "I care"


Then Obama can say "Not Enough"


Hayward can say "I care enough - it's you who doesn't care - you racist."


Obama says "I'm not a racist - you are the one with the British accent."


Then the two engage in a dramatic fist fight


The two have a SMACK DOWN - REPEATEDLY PUNCHING EACH OTHER AS THE WAVES CRASH ON THE BEACH and finally the two PHYSICALLY STRUGGLE and roll around in the sand - which causes the two of them to fall into the surf - as the waves wash over them,

Just as the two pause - and you think the two might kiss - the first oil drifts onto the beach.


NOW THAT WOULD BE GOOD TELEVISION.

..And now for something more important-
The President postpones his trip to Asia again so he can throw tar balls on OUR beaches, while BP runs the show and Hayward tells Thad Allen how things are going -

From Tonight's NY Times

"At a news conference in Metairie, La., Adm. Thad W. Allen of the Coast Guard, who is commanding the federal response to the disaster, said the cut was “a significant step forward.” But he warned that because the cut was not as straight as desired, the cap might not fit snugly, increasing the possibility that water might enter along with the oil to form icelike crystals called hydrates.

Given the string of engineering problems so far — the shears were used, for example, because a diamond-laced wire saw had become dull, perhaps from objects pumped into the well as part of an earlier failed effort — the relief well plan has faced its share of skepticism. Doubters have pointed to past problems with relief wells, including one drilled during a blowout off southern Mexico 30 years ago that was unable to stop the gusher for three months after it was completed, and another off Australia last fall that did not hit its target until the fifth try."

*****
5th try at a relief well? Wannabe Robocop cuts NOT straight enough for a tight seal?

Obama seems more and more like the mayor of near future Detroit outsourcing his city's fate to evil OCP! Where is Robocop to save us (2 sailors in a deep sea sub armed with welding or non nuke incendiary devices)?

Well if we're done with the 37th spit-spray for a moment .. allow me to interject a post while he smokes more crystal.

A few threads ago Brigade was mocking the fact that Bush and Cheney haven's been charged with any crimes, and weren't impeached.  His timing was impeccable, given that Bush giby admitted today that he ordered the water boarding of KSH.  Adding, of course, that's he'd do it agin.  An' agin an' agin.  T'pr'tec America, of coorse.  Reaction from the intelligence community was universally negative:

Waterboarding, a form of controlled drowning, is "unequivocably torture", said retired Brigadier General David R. Irvine, a former strategic intelligence officer who taught prisoner of war interrogation and military law for 18 years.

"As a nation, we have historically prosecuted it as such, going back to the time of the Spanish-American War," Irvine said. "Moreover, it cannot be demonstrated that any use of waterboarding by U.S. personnel in recent years has saved a single American life."

How does it feel to be a citizen of a rogue nation?  Not good.  

We all know that President Obama has chosen to copy the reasoning of Gerald Ford and to put the crimes of the recent past behind us, to allow the healing of the nation to begin.  But with his predecessor unapologetically admitting to war crimes, putting American troops in future compabt into direct jeopardy, I don't think that's the right approach.  I would hope that Bush and Cheney would be turned over to an international tribunal to answer for their crimes, thereby showing the world that this episode was an anomaly and does not reflect who we are as a people and what we are as a nation.

Proper regulation of industry is the proper role of the government.

Obama TAKING ALMOST A MILLION DOLLARS FROM BP - AND NOT SEEING PROPER SAFETY REGULATIONS IMPLEMENTED - that is not proper regulation.


The people on here talking about big government - or federal government roles - let's be serious.


OBAMA TOOK THE MONEY FROM BP - OBAMA CAME OUT IN FAVOR OF EXPANDED DRILLING.


PROPER SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATIONS WERE NOT IN PLACE BY THE GOVERNMENT.

Obama was NOT doing what he was supposed to - he is incompetent, unqualified - AND HE SHOULD RESIGN OVER THIS OIL SPILL.

You oversimplify the conservative thoughts on the federal government.


Your thinking is: just because the feds build a highway, then they should run the doctors office, and the factory, and everything else.

The conservatives want the smallest possible government - reduce unnecessary functions - and reduce taxes as much as possible.

Just because conservatives want smaller government, that doesn't mean they want no government.

For instance, if a guy wants his woman to lose weight, that doesn't mean he wants her to disappear completely.

Dear DrainYou,

When I asked this same question, here is the response I got.

1. It is perfectly acceptable for conservatives to ASK for federal help when needed.

2. It is perfectly acceptable for conservatives to ACCEPT federal help when needed.

3. In order for 1) and 2) to be ok, it is necessary for conservatives to be against federal help before it is needed.

4. 1) + 2) - 3) = 4

REPUBLICANS Block Effort To Hold Big Oil Companies Accountable For Economic Damage From Spills

Republicans, who exist to serve the wealthiest among us, seek to help Big Oil "socialize" (tax payer bailouts) their losses.

RIGHT WING FREE MARKET RELIGION GETS LOST IN OIL SPILL

"There has never been a challenge that the American people, with as little interference as possible by the federal government, cannot handle." — Bobby Jindal, March 24, 2009

That was then.

This is now:

11 people dead in an oil rig explosion, fragile marshlands damaged, perhaps irreparably, uncalculated millions (billions?) in lost revenue for the tourism and fishing industries, and a short attention span nation transfixed by a compelling image from a deep sea camera, brown gunk billowing out from a hole in the ocean floor, Things Getting Worse in real time.

And Bobby Jindal, governor of Louisiana, off whose coast this tragedy is centered, is singing a new song, starkly at odds with what he said last year in a speech before the Republican faithful. Now he's BEGGING for federal "interference." He wants federal money, federal supplies, wants the feds to help create barrier islands to protect Louisiana wetlands from oil.

You know perfectly well - that point is to compare the frequency of right-wing and tea party violence - with the frequency of inner-city violence.

I think 34 people got shot in Chicago last weekend - in just 2 days of the 3 day weekend. That does not include the Friday night shootings - and the Memorial Day shootings -

The newspapers dont give all the stats everyday.

You know PERFECTLY WELL what the point is.


I would say you are definitely a racist though.

Obama's new friend is Tony Hayward - BP and crew gave Obama almost a million dollars already.


Friends forever.


So Obama let the MMS keep up (or down) the lax safety standards at the oil rigs.

EVEN as Obama reviewed offshore oil drilling for OVER A YEAR, the lax safety and environmental standards remained.

Then in March, Obama announced a new unprecedented policy - he was going to Expand offshore drilling - and the lax standards remained.


OBAMA SHOULD HAVE TO RESIGN OVER THIS.


The RESPONSIBILITY GOES DIRECTLY TO OBAMA

WHERE IS THE OUTCRY ???

Obama and the democrats just want to play politics - and cover themselves - this is absolutely ridiculous.

...And now for something more important-
From Tonight's NY Times

"At a news conference in Metairie, La., Adm. Thad W. Allen of the Coast Guard, who is commanding the federal response to the disaster, said the cut was “a significant step forward.” But he warned that because the cut was not as straight as desired, the cap might not fit snugly, increasing the possibility that water might enter along with the oil to form icelike crystals called hydrates.

Given the string of engineering problems so far — the shears were used, for example, because a diamond-laced wire saw had become dull, perhaps from objects pumped into the well as part of an earlier failed effort — the relief well plan has faced its share of skepticism. Doubters have pointed to past problems with relief wells, including one drilled during a blowout off southern Mexico 30 years ago that was unable to stop the gusher for three months after it was completed, and another off Australia last fall that did not hit its target until the fifth try."

*****
5th try at a relief well? Wannabe Robocop cuts NOT straight enough for a tight seal?

Obama seems more and more like the mayor of near future Detroit outsourcing his city's fate to evil OCP! Where is Robocop to save us (2 sailors in a deep sea sub armed with welding or non nuke incendiary devices)?

cefty, that's not a real thing, is it? An umpire error? Wouldn't it just be an infield base hit? The call might have been blown (and it was blown pretty badly) but it's still the call just like any other blown call. It wouldn't be a 28 out game or anything.

I think Elias or whoever keeps track of these things now should just go and mark it down in the recordbook with an asterisk to footnote what happened. Then the pitcher can still go down in history.

Griffey was a big story too. The guy just couldn't stay healthy after his trade to Cincinnati. It's kind of tough to say that the career of a guy with over 600 home runs was disappointing, but while A-Rod and Randy Johnson each won a ring and a bunch of MVPs and Cy Youngs after leaving Seattle, Griffey never even managed to get a Gold Glove. He just wasn't the same once he left Seattle.

DDAWD: Should Galaraga go on to have a nearly hall of fame career, he will go into the Shrine in the Company of Bob Feller, who actually pitched a 9 inning perfect game and lost. His asterisk may be more in his favor than just throwing number 21. He has a 28 out perfect game to his record.

I still want to know how the official scorekeeper scored the play. Can't be a hit, and no player made an error.

So, imagine a play where the Ump is just in fair territory beyond first base, and the first baseman is away from the bag because nobody is on and the batter tends to hit to the right side of the infield. The pitcher jams the batter and in self defense the batter hits a very hard shot that bounces off the umps foot and goes into the first base dug out. The Batter gets on base I3U, interference by the first base umpire.

so this must be E3U, error by the first base umpire.

Galaraga has a more distinctive victory than just a perfect game.

This Fix cheerleading for Angle is bizarre, even for him. As far as we know (using HRC's phrase), no other single mainstream journalist is fronting positive stories about Angle. Reid is up SIX against Angle according to the Daily Kos polling information.

Here's Daily Kos's take on this dangerous wingnut:

"With Sue "Chicken" Lowden on a downward trajectory, the GOP looks set to nominate Rand Paul's female doppleganger in Nevada.

On her website — full of spelling mistakes and grammatical errors — Angle declares: "Like a soldier going to war, I am fighting for my country, the Constitution and a free society."

She wants to privatize Social Security; cut federal spending by hundreds of billions of dollars; build nuclear power plants inside Yucca Mountain; abolish the federal income tax and institute a "simpler, fairer, flatter tax system"; "defund Obamacare"; pull the United States out of the United Nations; ban nearly all abortions; get rid of the Energy and Education departments as well as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac; and remove all campaign finance restrictions, requiring instead immediate reporting of donations.

And in a state with a large and growing Hispanic population, Angle takes a hard-line view on immigration, siding with the tough new Arizona law that gives law enforcement officials broad discretion to crack down on suspected illegal aliens."

Does anyone think this perfect game thing is a bit overblown? I mean, yeah, it was a big deal to lose a perfect game in that way and I can understand why the pitcher would be upset, but in the grand scheme of blown calls, the outcome of the game wasn't changed. Think of the playoff games that were altered because of missed calls and I'd say this doesn't even come close.

I thought it was close at first---a bang bang play---even though the replay clearly showed the out was made. Umpires miss calls all the time, but people only seem to notice it in situations like this or in the playoffs and World Series. All in all, the umps do a pretty good job. If they want perfection, they'll have to go to instant replay. Frankly, I see a lot of bad ball and strike calls, but they're not talking about replaying those. Just part of the game.

Reid is pulling ahead and Angle has been damaged by her Scientology ties, and this is the Fix we get from it? Pathetic.

"Former Nevada state Rep. Sharron Angle, who has become the Tea Party favorite in the Republican primary for Senate, is now working to distance herself from a possible weakness in the race -- accusations that she has ties to the Church of Scientology.

As the Las Vegas Sun reports, the Angle campaign has scrubbed its website of a claim that she approached Sen. John Ensign, along with actresses Kelly Preston and Jenna Elfman, to sponsor legislation that would prohibit schools from requiring students to take psychotropic drugs. Preston and Elfman are prominent Scientologists, and the church opposes the use of psychiatric drugs. Now, Angle's website only says that Ensign sponsored a bill "at Angle's request."

This comes after Sue Lowden, the establishment-backed candidate in the race, ran an ad that attacked Angle for having "pushed a bill favored by the Church of Scientology, using tax dollars to give massages to prisoners."

In fact, Angle never formally presented a bill, but she did try to gain support for a prison drug rehabilitation program that would involve prisoners quitting drugs cold turkey, with saunas and massages as part of treatment -- an idea promoted by the Church of Scientology. Angle also tried to organize a legislative trip to a jail in Mexico."

Actually, DDAWD, I wonder if Sharron Angle's current "run out the clock" strategy might mean she is acutely aware of the November election. She's the Tea Party favorite in the Republican primary, which means she's probably running farthest to the right of all three candidates in an effort to win the nomination. But after she does, it's on to the general, and it's standard practice for Republicans who win their primaries to have to move back toward the center a little to win the general. Maybe she figures she has enough of a lead that she doesn't have to play to the far right anymore in order to win, and that's all the less distance she has to travel to the left in order to win the general.

I can't say I really think that's her strategy -- the Tea Party could turn on her if she tries to move even a fraction of an inch to the left, and without them, she's sunk against Harry Reid -- but it's a possibility.

One thing to note is that Nevada has had early voting for this election for about two weeks and that ends tomorrow.

Yeah, Angle doesn't have that large of a lead in the polls with a few more days to go especially given the volatility of these primaries as well as the vagaries of polling. It's like running down the clock from your own 20 yard line while up by a safety and your opponent has all his timeouts.

The House voted 407 to 2 (how's THAT for bi-partisanship, Harry?) to require E-Verify on the Feb. 2009 stimulus bill, but Reid blocked every attempt to have a vote in the Senate on the same amendment.

Harry Reid led a rally in Las Vegas for illegal aliens the same weekend 1200 people attended the funeral of an AZ rancher murdered by illegal alien drug smugglers.

Huh. You don't see the "run out the clock" strategy used too much in politics. Politicians will clam up for a little while throughout their campaigns if something sufficiently traumatic happens or they say something sufficiently stupid, but this close to the election, they're usually trying to get as many people as possible to pay attention to them.

I took a glance at the linked Right Now post and was greatly amused to see so many respondents claiming Sharron Angle shouldn't talk to the media, that she's doing the right thing by ignoring them and sticking to empty platitudes and softball questions from various and sundry Nevadans who were probably already going to vote for her. Naturally, were a Democrat to take the same approach, those posters would most assuredly dog that Democrat without relent, probably mostly with blathering to the effect of, "What is she hiding?" Because, as we all know, every second a candidate you don't like spends out of your direct line of sight is a second he or she spends scheming ways to hurt you, personally, when he or she takes office.

The eleventh republican Commandment, "Thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow republican" came about in the sixties as a way to keep republicans from cutting each other's throats in the primaries and thereby costing them victories in the general elections that really mean something. It is what eventually lead to the newtster winning control of Congress, but it has been used by Conservatives to leverage elections for so long that now the onlyn candidates they have left are the irrational right that hasn't yet RINO'd itself out of existance. These Conservatives, full of a feeling of political entitlement are now at the only throats left, each other's, and the blood bath is exactly what Nixon was trying to prevent when he popularized the commandment.

Of course we can hope that the blood bath has its usual effect on politics, costing Republicans who should never ever be elected to lose races that sane, moderate Republicans could have won.
