Angle set to visit two early primary states

(CNN) - Sharron Angle, the long-shot Tea Party-backed candidate who almost defeated Senate Majority Leady Harry Reid in last year's midterm elections, is hitting the road this week and it looks like another election may be on her mind.

Angle will be making stops in two early and important 2012 primary states this month for viewings of a Christian movie entitled "The Genesis Code," which is described by the producers as a film that "reconciles the Biblical account of Genesis with the scientific account of the origins of the universe."

The film will premiere in South Carolina on Friday and in New Hampshire on February 25. Both states hold some of the first primaries of the 2012 presidential campaign and are critical to mounting a successful bid for the White House. Further stoking 2012 speculation, Angle attended the film's debut in Iowa last month.

The former Nevada state legislator has not ruled out a bid for the country's highest office. When asked about her political aspirations at last week's Conservative Political Action Conference, Angle told CNN: "I think I have lots of options and I'm exploring them all."

Angle's "Patriot Caucus" PAC announced plans in December to open offices in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and Florida.

    viewings of a Christian movie entitled "The Genesis Code," which is described by the producers as a film that "reconciles the Biblical account of Genesis with the scientific account of the origins of the universe."

    Oh give me a break. There is nothing that can reconcile the two views because one is based in science and one is based in fantasy. It follows that Angle would be watching this kind of myth based bs. The only world she deserves to be elected in is la-la land.

    Bot the list that going run or thinking about is get DUMBER all the time. The Republican party should do something because it starting to look like a freak show. And anybody back by the Tea Party Is a bunch of crap and are Unqualified. And that really go for Sharron Angle, Saran Palin ,Michele Bachmann, Jim Demist, Donald Trump and a few other.

    Oh good golly Miss Molly does this nut think she has a snow balls chance in Hades to even get to be in a primary much less the candidate. I hope so...we know for sure the republicans would loose in a very very very large landslide. Like they would do with Palin, Newt, and the rest of the nuts who want to run. Ego is alive and well in the republican party.

    Sharron Angle ran from reporters during her campaign. Now should be the time for reporters to run from her. Give this nut no press coverage.

    The Republican field of candidates is filled with nonelectable and unserious "Presidential Candidates". This one for instance, couldn't even beat the Democratic Senate Leader in your own state. What makes you think you can beat the even higher Democrat POTUS across the entire US?

    Palin, Bachmann, Gingrich, Pawlenty, Trump, others to follow, are you kidding me? Looks like some may just be looking for publicity and publicity leads to money via media. Thank god everybody is smart enough to see that. OK, that last sentence was a joke. (Tragic that it is)

    I think she's doing the country a great disservice by not running for president. With the others in the triumverate, Michele and Sarah, I think the United states would once again be regarded as it was during the days of George Bush – the laughing stock of the world.

    When Jay black sang "Only in America", he never thought it would come to this.

    Hey Sharron, why not just stay Nevada where they understand your far right delusional lunacy.

    Oh, you have got to be kidding! She has less of a chance than Ron Paul has of winning the nomination and the election! The only reason she lost in Republican-heavy Nevada is Independents and her fellow Republicans (the non-Tea Party variety) were turned off by her and stayed home or voted for (choke) Senator Reid!

    I just have to ask, where does the Tea Party get these mental lightweights? Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann Rand Paul and Sharron Angle all together have a combined IQ of 10 and that is being generous.

    I just read her biography on Wikipedia. She may be more of a whacko than the other two.

    Can't imagine voting for her.

    She remains "the worst legislator" in Nevada history as voted twice by her peers. She is a religious zealot that is truly delusional. She is a person who hides from what she says and only an oppositional person consumed with her self defined importance. In other words: Sharron Angle is a wacko!

    Seriously?? Come on, we know she is stupid, but stupid enough to believe she has a snowball's chance in h*** to become President? I don't believe it! Not humanly possible for this woman to be so stupid and live so long. Just not possible.
