Right off the bat let me clear this up: I'm not implying that Sen. Harry Reid is giving money to the Sharron Angle campaign in her bid to win the 2010 GOP Senate nomination. Reid doesn't need to, there are plenty of other crazy rich right-wingers who are willing to do that.
However, I am saying that Harry Reid wants Sharon Angle to be the GOP nominee. Absolutely.
It all comes down to math. Nevada has an official "Tea Party" candidate on the November ballot already, and unless some very very very well paid GOP lawyer can get him thrown off, some tea party voters will be voting for him. Maybe not many, but enough to swing this election in Reid's favor. In some of Reid's past elections, he has won office by less than 1000 votes, and in this certainly close election, Tea Party Boy might want to consider changing his name to Ross Perot.
So to sum it up, if Angle wins the nomination, Harry Reid has it locked up.
Note: I realize I usually make much more fun of Sharron Angle, but I think I saw her at the shooting range last month. She has a very very big gun. And her silhouette targets looked a little bit like me. Actually, a lot like me.
