Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle has revolutionized campaigning this year in that she won't tell reporters where she's going, making the day-to-day work of covering her events into a private investigation. And when reporters find her? Apparently she "shushes" them.
"Shushing" is when you rudely say "SSSSSHHHHH" to someone. It used to be one of those things that candidates would never say in response to a reporter's question, for fear of looking like an asshole. And while it's not clear from the local news video above that Sharron Angle was the one shushing him, that's what he claims she did, and he was there, so yeah. And why not? She has her Tea Party supporter mailing lists, Fox News, and an endless supply of cash to run ads and direct mail campaigns. Local news reporters aren't necessary messengers her and plenty of similar candidates this year.
Only 11 more days until the election, people. We're going to have so many great stories of 2010's noble campaigns to share with our grandchildren, the Chinese.
