the TP just gets weirder:

 

Carson City, NV, United States (AHN) - GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle is threatening to sue Democrats for reposting her old campaign website that touted an "extreme" stance on issues. Democrats are hoping to draw attention to the "true views" of Angle, a candidate of the Tea Party before she won the Republican primary in Nevada last month.

 

Democrats say Angle's campaign staff "pulled down nearly 3,000 words of text from her original, pre-primary website" that detailed her "extreme agenda" to end Social Security by privatizing it, abolish the federal departments of education and energy, and deregulate big oil companies such as BP.

 

Angle has also scrubbed from her new website previous campaign statements on the United Nations that said, "The U.N. continually threatens U.S. sovereignty, with endless rhetoric and treaties and it has now become the 'umpire' on fraudulent science, such as global warming."

 

Democrats point out that Angle previously told radio host Bill Manders, "Well, you know, we're in a general election. And they're demanding things; today, I actually softened because I'm being held accountable for every idle word, as you know.'"

 

A former assemblywoman who defeated the ex-chair of the Nevada GOP in a divisive primary, Angle refused interviews with local and national news outlets for days after her victory. She later made headlines when she backtracked from some of her pre-primary comments in her first mainstream interview as the Republican candidate.

 

During a television interview, Angle had said, "The tenet of the separation of church and state is an unconstitutional doctrine.

 

"When told that the principle of separation of church and state is from the Constitution, she replied, "No it doesn't. Thomas Jefferson has been misquoted like I've been misquoted out of context."

The "principle" is in the Constitution? One things for sure, the actual words aren't there.
