Sharron Angle: Anti-Divorce

Your next senator from Nevada? She's crazier than you even think! Ms.  –sorry, Mrs.– Angle spoke to a church recently, and maybe she was pouring on the Jesus sauce a little too heavily, but gosh, she sounds like the real thing to me.

Actually, Sharron Angle is the type of Christian extremist I've been waiting for in politics: the kind that goes beyond mere abortion decrying and hairdresser bashing and into the much more rarefied air of preaching against alcohol, gambling, contraception and, in Angle's case, divorce:
"I confess that we are a nation who has killed our children. I confess that we are a nation who has walked away from the family and allowed divorce, even among our ranks. We have walked away from the biblical definition of marriage: one man, one woman, the two become one flesh."

She then goes on to make a Biblical case for ending Social Security and Medicare. Clever!

Get ready for Senator Angle! This should be fun!

One flesh... sounds like polyester meltdown.

"even among our ranks." Oh, indeed--especially among your ranks, my dear.

And why did we ever get rid of the scarlet letter? What about good old fashioned values again?

As awful as having this loon in the Senate will be (and it looks like we will), damn if it won't be entertaining! Can you even IMAGINE what committee hearings are going to be like with her and Rand Paul?

Yeah, I've gotta say that Sharron Angle is shaping up to be superstar material.

Angle makes Palin and O'Donnell seem sane and rational.
If she gets elected, they deserve her crazy ass.
