News Roundup for 6/15/10

Femme fatale with gun
Sharron Angle

-Headline of the day-
"Sharron Angle floated possibility of armed insurrection."

In the Nevada Republican primary, GOP voters were asked to make a choice between a chicken lady or someone who wasn't a chicken lady. They went with "wasn't."

Unfortunately, the choice between "crazy" and "not crazy" wasn't available to them, so they got stuck with rightwing nutjob Sharron Angle, who fits the default category. Turns out that, in addition to believing that fluoridation is a commie mind control plot, Angle thinks we ought to shoot congress.

And -- merely coincidentally, mind you -- her opponent in the general election.

"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?" Sharron told rightwing talk radio moron Lars Larson. "I'll tell you the first thing we need to do is take Harry Reid out."

Is she just being misinterpreted? Greg Sargent says Larson "tells me he doesn't have any doubt that she was floating the possibility of armed insurrection as a valid response if Congress continues along its current course."

This seems like a bad idea because, you know, Angle wants to be in the congress she wants shot. Forethought doesn't really seem to be her strong point. (Plum Line)

-Where's your God now, heathens?-
The first words in this video, in case you can't make them out, are "Jesus is on fire."

Here's what happened; Thor, the God of Thunder, got sick of looking at the graven idol "Touchdown Jesus" in Monroe, Ohio -- so he sent a terrible thunderbolt down to destroy it. 62 feet of foam and fiberglass, laid waste in an instant by the wrath of the Norse God.

Behold and tremble, Monrovians. For lo, it is time to switch teams. (Mediaite)

-Bonus HotD-
"John McCain Nearly Bores David Patraeus To Death."

No, seriously. Gen. Petraeus was testifying before Senate Armed Services Committee when McCain starts yapping at him and doesn't shut up until Dave literally keels over.

No really. There's video. Go check. (Wonkette)
