Bachmann and Angle agree: State aid is "laundered" money for Dems


On Fox News, Sharron Angle appeared to agree with Michele Bachmann when the latter claimed the $26 billion in state aid passed by Democrats constitutes money being "laundered through the public employee unions" for use by Dem candidates this fall.

This latest from Angle has prompted Harry Reid to directly attack Angle for the first time (he usually leaves this to surrogates) by posting video of the moment and criticizing her in a press release for opposing "just about any effort to protect jobs in Nevada."

Angle also appeared to say that the jobs emergency Reid keeps alluding to exists "only in Harry Reid's mind."

I wanted to highlight these quotes for a reason that goes beyond the back and forth between Angle and Reid. Here you're seeing the direct consequences of the rising influence of Bachmann and the Tea Party: Criticism of everything Dems do has to be tinged with allegations of vaguely criminal intent.


Watch at link~

The Tea Party hallucinations have grown so overheated that politics can no longer merely be clash of visions or ideologies. It's about rescuing the republic from evildoers. Everything Democrats do must of necessity be nefarious, even vaguely criminal.

2. That vaguely criminal thing is projection.
OK, why on earth does anyone listen to obtuse Angle or Michelle Bachmann? How in the name of hell do these brainless women get elected over and over and over again?
