Have the GOP lost the standards? are they all thieves going back to 1991?

At one point she laments that the GOP leadership has "lost their standards, they've lost their principles." She refers derisively to "that good old boy thing" and depicts herself as an underdog David fighting Goliath — the constricting machinery of the national party. She tells Ashjian she wants the GOP leadership "to leave me alone," confident she knows how to defeat Reid.

Ashjian says that since 2001, he has considered Democrats and the GOP interchangeable.

"They are all thieves," he says. Angle adds, "It's really been since 1991."

She later assures him she can use her "juice" to arrange meetings with GOP leaders, including South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Apparently unimpressed, Ashjian replies he can make those calls on his own. He never gives Angle his blessing, though he says he likes her and points out they share conservative values.

  • In a secretly taped recording, Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle badmouths the Gop establishmentand wheedles a minor-party candidate to support her campaign, offering help opening doors in Washington if she's elected.


    The roughly made recording offers an unvarnished look into back-room politics, with tea party favorite Angle alternately nudging and cajoling candidate Scott Ashjian, whose support could be crucial in her bid to oust Harry Reid

  • I think there is some truth to that..... But does that make the Democratic Party innocent? Hell No.

  • Someone said that Sharron Angle is nuts. It looks like they are right. I never knew about her until I read this. Kind of incoherent isn't she?
