We get mad at The Media now and again, but then we remember that they have a kind of a shitty job! Not as bad as, say, coal miners or eight-year-old Bangladeshi garment workers, but still! A lot of their time is spent lurking around waiting to shout dumb questions at people that they know with 100 percent certainty will never answer them. Sometimes you’re lurking outside Louis Farrakhan’s hockey party, and sometimes you’re outside the closed doors of the Senate Republicans’ weekly luncheon, listening to everyone hoot and holler as Sharron Angle calls for Harry Reid’s assassination.
Angle arrived in D.C. yesterday, the city she hates more than anything in the world, and refused to talk to anyone, anywhere, in public. Check out this recording of her non-answers to reporters’ questions, and pity them as they stumble through their rote queries and receive only stony silence in return! She fled the gaggle of ink-stained wretches to the safe press-free zone of the GOP lunch, but the industrious scribes just stone-cold sat in the hall outside the closed doors, hoping maybe something newsworthy might happen. And it did! “[Angle] remained inside for an hour and a half. (Three short rounds of applause could be heard.)” The Post got this important scoop, because, in the great tradition of Woodward and Bernstein, their reporters didn’t get bored and wander off!
Why might Sharron Angle hate talking to the press? It could be that they will ask her questions on delicate subjects, like her threat from January to shoot Harry Reid with her hidden gun.
You know, our Founding Fathers, they put that Second Amendment in there for a good reason and that was for the people to protect themselves against a tyrannical government. And in fact Thomas Jefferson said it’s good for a country to have a revolution every 20 years.
I hope that’s not where we’re going, but, you know, if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies and saying my goodness what can we do to turn this country around? I’ll tell you the first thing we need to do is take Harry Reid out.
Ha ha, the Republicans are cheering for her now, but once she’s elected she’ll just assassinate her way to seniority, until she is the Senate Majority Leader of a caucus full of corpses. [WaPo/WaPo/WaPo]
