A letter poured into the Global Worldwide Headquarters today and – be still our heart! – it was from Sharron Angle (R-Tea Baggage), the “Official Republican Nominee For U.S. Senate Against Harry Reid” according to the letter’s return address.
(Also on the envelope: “As the official Republican nominee running against Harry Reid, I need your help today!”)
Given the letter’s obvious importance, the hardworking staff decided to conduct an old-school Live Reading of the urgent message from the official Republican nominee running against Harry Reid.
(Opening now . . . )
The first thing you notice is the Post-It attached to the letter. It says, in simulated handwriting:
I need your
help to defeat
The letter itself begins this way:
Dear John Carroll,
If you’re the Republican I’ve been told you are, then I need you to find your checkbook right now.
Because I am the official Republican nomine to defeat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid . . .
. . . And I need your immediate financial support!
Question #1: Does Sharron Angle have self-esteem issues?
Question #2: Who exactly are these folks telling Angle what kind of Republican I am?
Question #3: Is this the same Sharron Angle who believes that (via the New York Times) “Dearborn, Mich., and Frankford, Tex., are under threat of Sharia law”?
Anyone out there think Sharria Law is scarier?
UPDATE: Hey, why does Sharron need my money at all? New York Times:
Sharron Angle, the Republican challenging Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, raised $14 million from July 1 to Sept. 30, a staggering figure that should give her more than enough money for the final weeks of this tight race. The fund-raising figure is the latest evidence of the ability of the Tea Party movement to generate huge waves of cash for a favorite candidate.
Yeah, well, wake me when I have a favorite candidate.
