Sharron Angle is Insane!
The fact that someone like Sharron Angle can become a serious candidate for the United States Senate indicates how far we have fallen and how deep is our trouble! Sharron Angle is as stupid as she is ignorant, which is totally; a woman who would be much more comfortable living in the 16th century rather than the 21st.
Jill Lawrence, writing at Politics Daily, discloses what Angle said in an April radio interview with Rick Wiles of TruNews Christian Radio.
First off, she described her contest with Harry Reid as "a war of ideology, a war of thoughts and of faith. And we need people to really stand for faith and trust, not hope and change." That's the kind of thinking you would find in a sixth-grader's essay in a Christian school. It makes "faith and trust exclusive of hope and change," which is a false dichotomy and thus makes no sense at all.
Obviously, it's a pathetic attempt to denigrate our President who campaigned on the themes of hope and change.
Furthermore, Ms. Angle, being a Christianist dominionist, obviously believes this country is, or should be, a Christian country. She knows not of our historical underpinnings, and she blows off our Constitution. We have too many people who "stand for faith and trust" and they are the ones who have brought this country to its knees. If there were a God, she would make this crystal clear to Ms. Angle, in spite of the fact that Angle's brain is pretty much non-functional.
It gets worse. During the interview, Angle tells the world she thinks the U.S. is a Christian country and should be ruled by her God. She said [to Wiles] 'these programs that you mentioned -- that [President] Obama has going with Reid and [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi pushing them forward -- are all entitlement programs built to make government our God. And that's really, what's happening in this country is a violation of the 1st Commandment. We have become a country drenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We're supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not ... our government.'"
In most other countries, and in another time in this country, the laughter directed at Angle would be so loud it would drown out Rush Limbaargher! And she would be consigned to a place reserved for really stupid people, never to be seen or heard from again.
And just when you think it can't get any worse ... Angle, because the small brain she possesses is consumed with a fever, believes she is God's candidate and doing God's will. Her desire to attain a U.S. Senate seat is all part of God's larger plan for her life. She has been called by God to do this. "I have watched Him walk with me through politics and help me to see the pitfalls of the political machinery, the seduction of the party, and even those outside the party, the lobbyists -- all of that to say that the Lord shows me daily where He wants me to walk."
This fruitcake, who, in her arrogance actually believes she has been "called" by some God somewhere, insists the Senate is not in the business of creating jobs. She thinks Medicare and Social Security should be abolished, along with the Department of Energy, the Department of Education and the Environmental Protection Agency.
Perhaps I need to clarify my rhetoric. I've called her stupid and ignorant, and I think that's true. But I am forced to further conclude that she is insane. Unfortunately, that does not disqualify her to run for the U.S. Senate. She may win, and take a seat amidst that august body. And that will mean, to our collective detriment, we'll have one more crazy fool to contend with at the top level of our government.
But maybe there's an out. If she wins and takes the oath of office, she must be arrested for perjury! She does not believe in the Constitution and her taking an oath to uphold that Constitution would make her a perjurer! She would have to be denied her seat in Congress because she won her race under false pretenses and does not believe in the government of which she wants to be a part.
Is this a great country, or what?
