Sharron Angle struggles on the national stage - Yahoo! News

How does a political protest movement that encompasses some 30 percent of Americans sit on the national stage? Not always so comfortably, it turns out.

U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle of Nevada, a tea party favorite who is running to unseat Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid, has been trying to pull off this awkward balancing act since she won the GOP primary last month. In her latest entry in national political debate, liberal political websites including the Huffington Post have picked up on a radio interview Angle gave last week detailing her opposition to abortion in cases involving incestuous rape. The hypothetical example that KXNT-AM host Alan Stock presented to Angle was a 13-year-old girl impregnated by her father. Angle replied:
I have said it many times, it's one thing to talk **** from the sidelines and it's another to talk **** on the field. The Tea Party with its conglomerate of Birthers, Pauligans, Palinians and whoever feels like they want to join the bandwagon has not realized it yet. We're seeing more gaffes, more backtracking, desperate attacks and more Republicans pretending to be something other than Republicans. I couldn't be happier. Hopefully it brings a few of them down from their high horses and into reality.
