Don't Ask Me… Just Trust Me


According to an article in the Huffington Post, "Nevada Senate candidate and Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle told a conservative radio host on Wednesday that when she is elected to office, she will reverse her now-longstanding policy of avoiding the political press."  

But not before.. unless your news organization is strongly conservative. And being a guest on Foxnews is like playing basketball with 4 year olds.

Even in the primaries, Angle began her "Don't Meet the Press" tactic, ducking out back and side doors to avoid reporters.

Voters must have serious doubts about any candidate afraid to answer questions before the election. This, however, seems to be the latest trend in Tea Party candidates this election to avoid the scrutiny of the press and using social networks like Twitter and Facebook to launch salvos at their opponents.

The reason for this strategy soon becomes apparent when Angle peeks her head over the embattlements. Here is an example.

  1. My cousin served in the Nevada State Legislature with Sharron Angle. When Angle first announced her candidacy, everyone in government thought it was a joke. Her platform was to only vote "No" on everything that came across her desk. Even on things that maybe she or her constituents may have supported, she voted "No" just to be obstructionist and annoying.

    Nevada has its share of rednecks (I'm from there originally), but, like redneck Oregon and Washington, it's always been a progressive but conservative state. Her making it this far is beyond embarrassing.


Always great to hear from visitors to Nomadic View. What's on your mind?
