Sharron Angle Forced To Self-Publish Her Book

by Jack Stuef

Oh how the mighty crazies fall.

Tea party favorite Sharron Angle is spending thousands of dollars to self-publish an autobiography about her life and values. [...]

As a self-publisher, Angle has control over the design and editing of her book, titled “Right Angle.” The Nevada Republican is hoping for an April release.

Just drop by her house and she’ll have one of the grandkids print you off a copy! It was dictated to them them the past few weeks, and they jotted it down in crayon, so it’ll probably be perfectly copyedited.

Don’t miss the great picture of a Lisa Frank eagle nuzzling the baby Jesus on the cover! [NPR]

"and then on Thursday, I saw a cat. I didn't like that cat, because it was brown. Stupid illegal Mexican cat…. but then I thought the cat looked kind of Siamese"

BlueMonkeh March 24, 2011 at 11:46 am

What – to crappy for even Regnery to buy?

Sue4466 March 24, 2011 at 1:48 pm

Which is saying aLOT.

nounverb911 March 24, 2011 at 11:47 am

Can I pay her for the book with a chicken? Oops, wrong Nevada crazy lady.

DaRooster March 24, 2011 at 12:20 pm

Howz about a duck?

Shit I thought it was the same lady. Well, keep fucking that chicken I guess…

Hatrabbit March 24, 2011 at 11:48 am

That's one book that'll never have any pages stuck together.

teebob2000 March 24, 2011 at 4:29 pm

I assume it'll have all her wisdom accumulated over the course of her life. So in other words, one page cannot by definition stick together.

JoshuaNorton March 24, 2011 at 11:49 am

Apparently it was even too weird for Marvel Comics.

SayItWithWookies March 24, 2011 at 12:31 pm

Losing to Harry Reid is not a superpower.

CthuNHu March 24, 2011 at 3:28 pm

Oh yeah? Then show me someone else who could have done it.

Someone whose name doesn't rhyme with "Shpooamar Blahdafi"

Hatrabbit March 24, 2011 at 11:51 am

She's come a long way since the old Wonkette story: "Sharron Angle Forced To Self-Read A Book."

Troubledog March 24, 2011 at 11:52 am

I'll wait for the movie.

nounverb911 March 24, 2011 at 11:59 am

Sharon Angle to be played by the ever lovely Smurfette.

Sophist [غني عن ذلك] March 24, 2011 at 12:24 pm

I'm voting for Gary Busey as Angle, Steve Buscemi as Reid, and Ted Nugent as the Second Amendment.

Radiotherapy March 24, 2011 at 1:32 pm

Isn't the book always better than the movie?

SorosBot March 24, 2011 at 11:55 am

I'm pleasantly surprised she didn't turn to second-amendment solutions to make someone publish it.

SexySmurf March 24, 2011 at 11:58 am

You know who else self-published an autobiography about their life and values?

metamarcisf March 24, 2011 at 12:02 pm

Carrot Top?

Not_So_Much March 24, 2011 at 12:10 pm

L. Ron Hubbard?

SorosBot March 24, 2011 at 12:12 pm

The Marquis de Sade?

Bill Bennett?

SayItWithWookies March 24, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Ted Kaczynski?

Crank_Tango March 24, 2011 at 12:38 pm

was it Sarah Palin's "My Struggle"?

KenLayIsAlive March 24, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Including a detailed account of Hitler's heartbreak over Eva Braun's affair with an Inuit masseuse?

Grief_Lessons March 24, 2011 at 2:47 pm

Hitler! Hitler! It's fucking Hitler! Why can't you people see what he's talking about?

WriteyWriterton March 24, 2011 at 3:10 pm

Easy on the throttle/spittle there, big guy/gal. And who or what, exactly, is the "it" that's f*^#ing Hitler?

KenLayIsAlive March 24, 2011 at 10:17 pm

Hopefully it is a huge demon with a giant dick made of fire and thorns.

Alastair Crowely?

Oh Noes…A Teabagger™ with a Commodore PET and dot-matrix printer screeds a manifesto

Radiotherapy March 24, 2011 at 1:37 pm

What, she couldn't just tweet this out in under 140 characters?

Come here a minute March 24, 2011 at 12:00 pm

You say that like it's a bad thing — now she's an author and a publisher. Time to update the old C.V.!

jus_wonderin March 24, 2011 at 4:28 pm

And a book binder. Next up, candlestick making.

ويجا المجلس March 24, 2011 at 12:01 pm

Well you have to salute her pluck. Do you know how difficult it is to get supplies for a mimeograph machine?

Crank_Tango March 24, 2011 at 12:39 pm

snnnnniiiiiffffffffff mmmmm smells like bananas!

elviouslyqueer March 24, 2011 at 2:24 pm

Keep plucking that chicken, Sharron.

donner_froh March 24, 2011 at 12:02 pm

Based on the kind of crap that Regnery and its subsidiaries dump on the market from brain dead right wing fucknuts this must be one of the worst manuscripts ever produced in whatever language it is written.

KenLayIsAlive March 24, 2011 at 10:18 pm

Surely it has been translated from the Olde Cuntish.

GuyClinch March 24, 2011 at 12:02 pm

Book stores will stock it in the "Mental-Health Disorders" section.

Callyson March 24, 2011 at 12:09 pm

"The Nevada Republican is hoping for an April release"
Happy April Fool's Day!

BlueMonkeh March 24, 2011 at 12:13 pm

That is one long happy ending.

user-of-owls March 24, 2011 at 12:09 pm

When I was in Cuba many years ago, they had these open-air used book markets in Havana. The problem was selection. You'd see something like a lawnmower manual, a three-volume set commemorating the 1977 visit of the Prime Minister of Comorros, and then nothing but oceans of Che Guevara's "On Revolution." They must have printed billions of them. It took me a while to figure out why every other Cuban seemed to be hawking the exact same book (other than limitless supply and a comical unfamiliarity with basic capitalism). Then it finally clicked: chronic shortages of toilet paper.

And now, at long last, you see the point of my post.

Not_So_Much March 24, 2011 at 12:11 pm

She'll need the big 64 box of Crayolas. Maybe two, since she'll be using a lot of 'burnt umber' on teh brownez.

PublicLuxury March 24, 2011 at 4:31 pm

She doesn't possess the fine motor skills needed for the 64 box of Crayolas. She is still at the Palmer stage and needs the So Big Crayolas.

magnetite March 24, 2011 at 5:08 pm

No matter how many times it hasn't worked out well for her, she always eats "the ones that say they're food".

Steverino247 March 24, 2011 at 12:14 pm

More like: "Off on a Tangent" than "Right Angle" if you ask me.

Sophist [غني عن ذلك] March 24, 2011 at 12:14 pm

She was going to title it "The Protocols of the Elders of Juárez", but her intended audience wouldn't buy a book with Messican in the title.

V5¹∞ª℠≠½6³√•4° March 24, 2011 at 12:16 pm

Aren't all autobiographies about the author's life? C'mon, NPR, you've still got Joan Kroc's money to hire editors with!

mavenmaven March 24, 2011 at 12:17 pm

She looks sort of Asian in that picture on the NPR page, no? You all look sort of Asian to me!

Tommmcatt March 24, 2011 at 3:06 pm

I'm Asian by injection!

Guppy06 March 24, 2011 at 12:19 pm

Sounds pretty obtuse to me.

hagajim March 24, 2011 at 12:19 pm

Don't worry – she'll sell 10,000 copies to her campaign and then give them away….what a scam.

chascates March 24, 2011 at 12:22 pm

Sharron, the hardest part is stapling the pages together so don't make it too long.

Badonkadonkette March 24, 2011 at 12:25 pm

But how much will she pay Victoria Jackson to play her in the adaptation?

Gopherit March 24, 2011 at 12:36 pm

Ah, self published books. I bet Amazon is just waiting with bated breath for the pre-orders.

OC_xenon-133_Serf March 24, 2011 at 12:38 pm

"Obtuse Angle"

I smell a book burning!

JustPixelz March 24, 2011 at 12:56 pm

"Write Angle"?
"Try Angle"?
"Angle Soft"? (for the TP'ers)

KenLayIsAlive March 24, 2011 at 1:04 pm

I tried Angle once. As expected, it tasted like hate and cheap perfume.

PalinPussyPower March 24, 2011 at 1:31 pm

When this hits the bookshelves, I will go to my local Barnes & Noble. I will move half the copies to the "Psychology" section and the other half to "Lesbian Erotica". You're welcome.

BlueMonkeh March 24, 2011 at 2:00 pm

My husband likes to pick up Coultergeist's books and leave them in the mens bathroom.

widestanceroman March 24, 2011 at 1:35 pm

'Angleberries' is more to the point.

Jim89048 March 24, 2011 at 1:42 pm

Today is the first time I've ever been happy about the fact that my small desert town in Nevada doesn't have a bookstore.

neiltheblaze March 24, 2011 at 1:50 pm

Whatsamattah – Regnery not interested?

OneYieldRegular March 24, 2011 at 1:59 pm

Now that was just plain mean.

neiltheblaze March 24, 2011 at 3:30 pm

Why, thank you.

OneYieldRegular March 24, 2011 at 1:51 pm

The article bloatedly says Angle recently "contracted the book with the leading self-publishing company." Judging from this leading self-publishing company's web site, it looks like I could simply go online and "contract" my own autobiography of Sharron Angle in a matter of seconds.

bflrtsplk March 24, 2011 at 2:41 pm

"Contract" means it's contagious?

OneYieldRegular March 24, 2011 at 5:35 pm

Through irresponsible behavior, you know.

__kth__ March 24, 2011 at 1:54 pm

Impossible that there aren't enough teatards willing to postpone a trip to the bingo parlor to drop a Jackson for this. Either it's a bluff in response to a lowball figure from a publishing house, or it's a scam.

BarackMyWorld March 24, 2011 at 3:10 pm

Between the self-publishing costs and the fee for a ghost-writer, writing a book can get really expensive!

WriteyWriterton March 24, 2011 at 3:11 pm

I thought "Obtuse Angle" might be more accurate, but I'm just a stoopind liebrill.

WriteyWriterton March 24, 2011 at 3:13 pm

"Eww! There's Christine O'Donnell all over my book!"

mumbly_ジョジョ March 24, 2011 at 3:25 pm

Far Right Angle would probably be more accurate, honestly.

Jason_inthe_Peg March 24, 2011 at 4:16 pm

You say forced to self-publish. As though she had no choice but to print the damned thing.

PublicLuxury March 24, 2011 at 4:38 pm

She is self-publishing of her autobiography??? OMG She's going to run against Barack Obama as liberal conservative

magnetite March 24, 2011 at 4:58 pm

That's the sequel. From Every Angle.

magnetite March 24, 2011 at 5:27 pm

Is she going to self-pulp it as well?

ttommyunger March 25, 2011 at 1:35 pm

Little Miss Troll-Face has been forced to "do" for herself most of her life, seeing as how even the Arizona male has some standards in the area of fuckability, so; no surprises here.

NorthStarSpanx March 25, 2011 at 2:56 pm

It is with apology to Wonkette that I actually like the clever title of her book. Sad and pathetic as it may be.

JustPixelz March 24, 2011 at 12:58 pm

Definitely not a cute angle.
