From the LAS VEGAS SUN:
Orly Taitz, the self-appointed “queen of the birthers,” has endorsed Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle.
Taitz today asked supporters to donate money to Angle’s campaign and to visit Las Vegas to stump for the Tea Party darling.
I bet Sharron the Obtuse Angle is sooooo excited over getting an endorsement from someone so widely well-respected. That takes the sting out of having to wear a socialist hat that had to be approved and certified healthy by the CDC. If only everyone had listened to Congressman and medical doctor, Paul Broun (R-BATSHITVILLE).

But I digress…
“For the next 5 weeks I am less important, and my $20,000 sanctions are less important than Sharron, so please, donate,” Taitz wrote on her website. “Now is the time to take a trip to Vegas!…we can walk the precincts for Sharron, dispense fliers to the undecided independent voters or moderate, blue dog Democrats, who are fed up with this takeover of the country or we can tell some lazy Conservatives to get off their lazy b…. and vote.”
Taitz is a California dentist and lawyer who gained national attention for her “birther” theories, namely that President Barack Obama is not a U.S. citizen and therefore is ineligible to serve as president.
The Supreme Court recently upheld a $20,000 fine against Taitz for a frivolous lawsuit she filed in Georgia on behalf of an Army captain who refused to deploy to Iraq.
Sharron Angle insists she is not a birther.
When asked in July whether she believes Obama was born somewhere other than Hawaii, she said, “No.”
A day earlier, however, she waffled on the question. Asked on a Conservative internet radio show whether she believes Obama is eligible to be president, Angle said the Supreme Court already decided that and went on to talk about Obama’s weakness as a leader.
The Angle campaign did not respond to a request for comment today on Taitz’s support.
A spokesman for Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the endorsement highlights Angle’s “extreme” views.
“It should come as no surprise that one of Angle’s only endorsements comes from yet another out-of-state extremist who can’t be honest, despite irrefutable evidence about the president’s birth certificate,” spokesman Kelly Steele said.
But that’s not the only high-powered endorsement the Obtuse Angle got, kids! From the Atlantic Wire:
That comedian Dennis Miller would headline a fundraiser for a Republican is not news. The former Weekend Update anchor’s politics–always conservative–have moved hard to the right in recent years. That the Republican is Nevada senate candidate Sharron Angle does comes as a surprise, considering Miller’s less-than-flattering appraisal of the Tea Party (“Norman Rockwell hoi polloi”) and Glenn Beck (“[He] makes Howard Beale look like John Wayne”).
