Sharron Angle considering run against RINO for Harry Reid's seat

Sharron Angle, who was vilified for running against Harry Reid in 2010 as a Tea Party conservative, is considering a comeback now that Harry Reid, having suffered a political black eye by losing the Senate, is retiring in 2016.  The only problem is that she would have to run against the establishment-backed GOP candidate, Joe Heck.

Joe Heck gets an "F" from Conservativereview.com...just like Harry Reid!  He voted to fully fund Planned Parenthood's baby chop shops, voted to give Obama fast-track trade authority, voted against killing Obama's illegal amnesty for aliens, and voted to support keeping John Boehner as speaker, and those are just some of his bad votes from this year alone.  If elected to the Senate, he would be like Harry Reid with less creepy glasses.

Sharron Angle is a more committed conservative.  We are supposed to think she is inept because she could not defeat Harry Reid last time, when establishment Republicans deserted her, but she is excellent on many issues.

Angle believes that the U.S. Department of Education should be eliminated and that the local approach yields the best academic results. ... Angle believes that the U.S. should withdraw from the United Nations, saying it is a bastion of liberal ideology and "the umpire on fraudulent science such as global warming." ... Angle supports the Federal Marriage Amendment to define marriage as between one man and one woman. ... Angle favors the privatization of Medicare. ... Angle has said that the Social Security system should be "transitioned out[.]" ... Angle favors a comprehensive audit of the Federal Reserve, eliminating the complete Internal Revenue Service code and abolishing Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. ... Angle does not believe in man-made global warming.

Republicans simultaneously think she would lose in the general election and could be trouble for Heck in the primary.

[Establishment] Republicans do not believe that Angle can beat Heck, who is a major recruiting coup for Republicans in one of the only competitive open-seat elections in 2016. But there are two worries: That she could drag Heck to the right and leave Cortez Masto running room in purple Nevada, and that she could drain Heck's resources before an expensive general election.

Wouldn't that be awful, if Angle dragged a RINO "to the right"?  He might be forced to at least rhetorically take conservative positions (which, of course, would be forgotten the minute he's elected).  But the establishment sees it as a liability to even run as a conservative.  This is the kind of twisted thinking that is opposed to Sharron Angle and other conservative candidates.
