Sen. Reid's Big Break: Nevada's GOP Candidate Has Far-Right Radical Ties

 Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid got a big boost last night when Republican voters put Sharron Angle, certified Tea Party wacko, on the Nevada ballot.

Angle's views go off the deep end, not a good way to get elected even in Nevada. Here's a summary:
The peculiar ideology of Sharron Angle, the Republican nominee challenging Sen. Harry Reid in Nevada, is perhaps no better illustrated than by her embrace of the patriot group Oath Keepers, whose membership of uniformed soldiers and police take an oath to refuse orders they see as unconstitutional -- including enforcement of gun laws, violations of states' sovereignty, and "any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps."

"We support what the organization stands for," Angle's husband, Ted, told Talking Points Memo DC in a phone interview Monday. "Sharron does."
 The Oath Keepers, by the way, are paranoid in a number of ways, especially in their views that secret detention camps are just around the corner.

Find out what far Right-wingers are crusading AGAINST, and you will know what they wish to impose. Typical projection. Happens over and over.

Re the Florida Senate election, over a month ago in response to Man of the West, I said:

"Crist may not feel such a strong affiliation with the GOP after their shabby treatment of him. Should he win, he might feel emboldened to vote with the Democrats more than you suppose."

And now:
