Re: Nevada: Sharron Angle Running For Senate I think it's more of a mixed bag than that. The more utterly crackpot positions she has along with Scientology, if the Scientology issue gets any traction at all, which it already has, the result will be that people might not remember the specific factoid about Angle and Scientology, but they'll get more of an impression that whatever Scientology is, it is associated with kooky nonsense. Many of Sharron Angle's positions are so far out of the mainstream that even most of her own party views her as a lunatic. This avoids a lot of the partisanfaggotry that might otherwise erupt and distract from the Scientology issue, since the usual minus to attacking a politician with Scientology is that the members of that politician's party will tend to circle ranks at that point and might even get a positive impression of Scientology as a result. The one position Angle takes that guarantees she is unelectable is her stance on prohibition of alcohol, even though she's distanced herself from that. That just won't fly in Nevada and will guarantee that the casino interests will oppose her.
