If Truth Will Out, Sharron Angle Wins

Those interested in the Harry Reid — Sharron Angle race for Senate can find plenty of info at William Jacobson’s Le·gal In·sur·rec·tion blog. He points that all Sharron Angle need do to win is tell the truth about Harry Reid; but Harry Reid must lie about Sharron Angle in order to win. So Harry Reid has resorted to every sort of mudslinging and trying to brand Sharron Angle as an extremist. Sharron Angle now has a good response in this campaign ad:

Two weeks ago Rasmussen showed Reid and Angle tied at 47%, which represented a recent uptick for Angle. When leaners were included in the poll Angle led by 2 points. Rasmussen has changed its designation of the Nevada race for U.S. Senate from “leans Democrat” to “toss up.”

Leaners are those who initially indicate no preference for either of the candidates but answer a follow-up question and say they are leaning towards a particular candidate. Rasmussen has never before included leaners in its poll results, and still separates which results include leaners and which do not.

The guys at Powerline suggest that “Leans Democrat” is the new “Toss Up” and “Toss Up” is the new “Leans Republican.”

All this sort of reminds me of the lyrics from Buffalo Springfield in “For What It’s Worth”:

There’s something happening here
What it is ain’t exactly clear

I think it’s time we stop, children, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

There’s battle lines being drawn
Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

I think it’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down
What a field-day for the heat

A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side

It’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down…
