Harry Reid To Sharron Angle On DADT: It’s As If You Have No Idea What Happens On Capitol Hill

During last night’s Nevada Senate debate between Harry Reid and Sharron Angle, America’s most pleasant political hopeful, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell was just one of many opportunities for the incumbent to call his challenger a moron.

Asked her views on DADT, Angle says: “The policies within the military, especially this one are under review right now. And we should be waiting for the review of our military to make those decisions, not jumping ahead and making those decisions as Senator Reid tried to do when he put a provision of that provision in the defense bill. We and here in Nevada have been very careful to define marriage as between a man and a woman through two general elections. Over 70% of the population has voted to define marriage as between a man and a woman. I support what Nevada has done and I will represent our constituents on that basis.”

Responded Reid: Uh, shut up lady.

    Why does it seem that we always have two bad choices to choose from? Please wake me up after November.

    If Reid thinks that people are voting for him because they like or respect him as a politician or candidate, he has no clue. The only reason someone would vote for Reid is because they don’t like or want the other choice.

    After this election cycle, I’m going down to the local Department of Elections, picking up a form, and changing back to Democrat if this lady, among others, is elected to the US Senate.

    They both SUCK and they both are denying that there are other names on the ballot.

    Are the Dems, as a whole, doing the best they can? No. Are Dems a better choice than Republicans, as a whole? Yes.

    Actually 67% of Nevada voted to ban gay marriage back in 2002. Today I’m sure that number would be well under 60%

    I cannot believe that this woman is polling well at all…

    Is Reid that distasteful, or has Nevada become the western Mississippi?

    The Dems are fools for not having seen the writing on the wall and having Reid himself, groom a new Dem candidate to take the Nevada seat for years to come. And that’s part of the problem, established politicians with no desire to give up their perks and status in favor of the greater goal.

    If the gays keep having to swallow our pride and support the Dems, why aren’t party operatives asking the same of its unpopular ‘stalwarts’?

    Repubs market their message in bite-sized, takeaway messages that resonate & are remembered a minute later. Dems drone. Until they fix that, they’re fukced.

    Did anyone take notice of Sharon (T)Angle’s deliberate gay slur against Reed when she attempted to demasculate him by saying ‘man up’?
