Sharron Angle Forced To Self-Publish Her Book

  just like her favorite conspiracy theorists

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.

    "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"

      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.

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

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

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

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

  3. SorosBot

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

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

      1. WriteyWriterton

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

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

  5. Come here a minute

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

    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.

    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.

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

    1. PublicLuxury

      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.

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

  9. Sophist [غني عن ذلك]

    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.

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

  11. mavenmaven

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

  12. Steverino247

    Other title ideas:

    A Mind That Lost Itself

    Self-Loathing in Las Vegas

    It's Not the Heat, It's the Stupidity

    SHARRON: The Second R Stands for Right

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

  14. PalinPussyPower

    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.

    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.

  16. OneYieldRegular

    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.

  17. __kth__

    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.

  18. BarackMyWorld

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

  19. WriteyWriterton

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

  20. Jason_inthe_Peg

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

  21. PublicLuxury

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

  22. ttommyunger

    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.

  23. NorthStarSpanx

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