Mayor to Sharron Angle: Come to Dearborn

(CNN) - Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle will soon receive a personal invitation to visit Dearborn, Michigan – and a bit of the history lesson in the process.

Last week at a rally of Tea Party movement supporters, Angle said Dearborn and Frankford, Texas are subject to Sharia, or Islamic law.

“We're talking about a militant terrorist situation, which I believe isn't a widespread thing, but it is enough that we need to address, and we have been addressing it,” Angle said according to audio of the rally obtained by the Washington Post. “My thoughts are these. First of all, Dearborn, Michigan, and Frankford, Texas, are on American soil, and under constitutional law. Not Sharia law. And I don't know how that happened in the United States.”

    Sharron Angle makes Palin look intelligent . . . almost. If we're not hanging out with terrorists, our cities are coming under Sharia Law. Also. Too. You betcha. How gracious of Dearborn's Mayor to extend an invitation for Angle to visit. Very doubtful, though, that Dearborn will be seeing Angle up close and personal any time soon. Words out that Angle tends to shy away from publicity these days. Must have been something she said. Quite the little problem for most the of TeaGang lately . . . saying and flop flopping and saying and flip flopping and saying and flip flopping. Makes Kerry look like a absolute saint in comparison.

    This is all part of the conservative republican plan.
    They cut education so they can get an ignorant electorate.
    Because they are ignorant, they are more susceptible to the lies being told by people like Sharron Angle and Christine O'donnel
    The Lies generate fear among the ignorant uneducated populace. The GOP articulate this fear and blame it on those who oppose them tricking the ignorant electorate to vote republican. The republicans proceed to pass policies benefiting their friends and subsequently destroying the nation and the economy until the once ignorant electorate awakes from a slumber of ignorance and apathy and vote Democratic. With enough time and negativity from the republicans, the electorate forgets how crappy Republicans were and the put them back into power and we start the dance all over again.

    This is not going to happen again.

    I bet money she won't visit Dearborn. Sharon Angle is speaking about a community she knows nothing about. This just goes to show you how bigotted she is. We do not need bigots in the U.S. Senate. We already have Sen. Demint and that is one too many.

    Good thing Sharia is not taking hold. I'd hate to think of cab drivers denying carriage to people who have alcohol or pork, or are from Somalia. Or that muslims get greater concessions at public buildings then people of other faiths. oh wait thats already happened in Dearborn! Perhaps O'reilly should be more concerned with enforcing the AMERICAN anti discrimination laws in his own town then what is going on in Nevada!

    She's too chicken. Her lies have been disputed and she's chicken.
