Sharron Angle Takes The Phrase "Senate Run" Too Literally

Republican Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle's media strategy is, at the very least, consistent: Avoid, avoid, avoid, even when you've specifically invited them to your event.

In the warehouse of a family-owned clean diesel manufacturer in Sparks, Angle delivered a three-minute speech on her desire to permanently repeal the estate tax. When invited by the final speaker to stay and answer a few questions, sheturned on her heel and rushed out a back door with a small cadre of staff members.

Reporters, including one who is six months pregnant, chased after her, calling out questions on unemployment benefits and other topics she has largely refused to address.

Maybe next time she will actually stick around and offer a "no comment."

The estate tax is my favorite tax. If all the taxes were members of a boy band, the estate tax would be the one I'd blow backstage.
