Palin, Angle planning campaign event

Washington (CNN) - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has already donated $2500 to try and help defeat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, and talks are underway for the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee to appear on behalf of GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle.

Jarrod Agen, Angle's spokesman, said that the Nevada Republican nominee's campaign is working with Palin aides to try and schedule an event before Election Day.

"We are obviously happy to have her support and we are working with her team to get the two of them together," said Agen.

The Daily Caller reported Tuesday that Palin plans to “actively help” Angle, a favorite of Tea Party activists.

Reid is one of the Senate's most vulnerable Democrats and Republicans have made efforts to try and defeat him in November a top priority. Recent polls have shown the Nevada contest to be a competitive race.

    Is Angel dumber than a rock? WHO wants Sarah Palin's endorsement after all her other endorsements LOST.

    Angel must not be smarter than a 5th grader for sure.

    $2500? Is that all?? She doesn't think much of Angle and she raised MUCH MORE than that!! Oh yea, I forgot – Botox!!!

    I guess Palin is just trying to follow suit by picking all of the LOSERS!

    I thought at first Angle was just playing "dumb", but the woman is actually dumb as hell. I can NOT belief folks in Nevada are actually STUPID enough to vote this nut-case into office. Talk about "one flew over the cuckoo's nest". Republicans LOVE their delusional candidates that's for sure.

    Well, Mrs. Palin is 0 to 5 on endorsements this month, so maybe Angle may need to look for someone else.

  5. The truth really IS stranger than fiction

    I can't stop laughing!!! Just the idea of Sarah Wasillabilly with the Nevada Ninny is hysterical, yet scary at the same time... HELP me! There's not enough bleach in the whole state to scrub that hideous image out of my head. However, I do look forward to Tina Fey's portrayal of this!

    I really didn't think Sara Palin was going to go home after her loses. It was wishfull thinking. Sara Palin is too full of her self to realize her Stardom power is fading away. I am so glad she is endorsing Sharron Angel because she just make sure Reid is a shoe in. The kiss of death.

    Do any body remember how horriable Palin aides are when it comes to scheduling event for Palin.

    NO! Not Sarah Palin!!! Us Liberals are doomed!!!!

    Just play'n...

    Has anyone seen Sarah's endorsement record this election season? Yeh, she needs to go to Nevada, regurgitate some word salads and make a fool of herself again, that should guarantee Reid's re-election. Sweet. Thanks Mrs. Palin!

    Lately, Sarah's endorsement seems to be like the kiss of death. Let's hope it holds true for Ms. Angle as well.

    No matter who wins America loses REID needs to go. Palindoesn't have the COJONES to help anybody. Angle should be smart enough to see that anyone that Palin supports is going to be a loser.

    I'd love to see Harry Reid debate these 2 CLOWN, He would make mince meat out of them.

  17. they call me "tater salad"

    That should drive the final nail into the coffin of Sharon Angle's political aspirations!........Thanks again Sarah for pointing out to all of us which zipperhead NOT to vote for. Harry Reid might have a slightly HUGE downside but, he's a better choice than the alternative.

    Wake up, lemmings, get your quotes to cut and paste from moveon and mediamatters, it's time for today's Two Minutes' Hate. It's 1984 and you don't even know it (get a literate person to explain this to you if you don't understand). I'm voting for Goldstein, as are most thinking people.

    Wow! That'd be a whole lot of crazy in one room. I bet you'll be able to tally the collective IQ on one hand.

    These women do NOT represent me! They are unintelligent, mean spirited and clueless about the real big world out there. And with their agenda, women's rights will go back 100 years!
    Perhaps they are better suited for a comedy club...

    Instead of cash, Sarah should offer to trade chickens or maybe a few burros?
