Sharron Angles political makeover
But judging by what is wafting back from the much-hyped Ms.-Angle-Goes-to-Washington trip, she is submitting to a makeover that, if not Capraesque, is at least Scott Brown-like (indeed, she has some of the Massachusetts Miracle’s handlers). And if she can feint toward the middle on issues that might have alienated her from independent voters — or at least massage them in a non-L. Ron Hubbard way — Reid, despite his Angle Marginalization Plan, may be the one consigned to the fringe.
It is hardly out of the question that the populous Anybody-But-Reid Caucus will choose her instead of one of the ballot’s other choices (including “none of these candidates”), especially if she seems benignly eccentric instead of certifiably cuckoo.
This veritable torrent of Angle-is-weird-and-maybe-dangerous stories can’t continue for 139 more days. Right? If it does, Angle can’t possibly survive, even against the manifestly unpopular Reid whom pundit Stu Rothenberg wrote this week “is still more likely than not to lose.”
