Vegas Papers Agree: Angle Won

The Sun says Angle won, and not even in a close one, but then criticizes her for her previous statements about abolishing the Department of Education and Medicare, and etc., that she has since recanted or denies having made in the first place.

A lot of conservatives just love, love, love statements like this, but in the end, the candidate is forced to recant/lie about the statement. So how does making a statement which will ultimately be repudiated help anyone? How about we cut out the middleman and go right to the ultimate outcome of the statement not being made?

Keeps happening. Hope it stops soon.

I think the important take-away is that Angle isn't crazy and is prepared to be Senator. That was the lingering doubt in people's minds. That seems gone now.


Edited: Readers inform me one of the papers linked is part of the nasty "RightHaven" shakedown syndicate, which basically is an attempt to make newspapers profitable via lawsuit against bloggers.

I took down the link.

More: The National Journal's Hotline On Call says it's nearly a knockout blow.

Angle took full advantage of Reid's position as a political insider, taunting him for his support of Democratic policies, from the stimulus to the health care bill. At one point, Angle told Reid to "man up" - and later questioned how he became so wealthy as a public servant.

"I'm not a career politician," Angle said in her opening remarks. "I live in a middle class neighborhood in Reno; Senator Reid lives in the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, DC."

Here's a YouTube clip from the debate; Sharron Angle asks Reid how exactly he became a millionaire while living on a civil servant's salary.
