(Newser) – Sharron Angle's campaign staff used a decoy to dodge the press at an event in Nevada yesterday, one of the foiled reporters tells the Huffington Post. A staffer for the Senate candidate moved close to the press pack waiting outside the building's front door and shouted, "Hello, OK, Is she ready? Is she coming down now?" into his cell phone, the reporter says. Two women soon emerged and got into a waiting car.

By the time reporters realized neither woman was Angle—who has been keeping a low profile since video surfaced of her telling Hispanic students they looked like Asians —the candidate was long gone through a side door. A campaign spokesman says Angle had to leave the event quickly because she was already late for another one.

You libs don't seem to have a problem with Obama actually being a decoy for what was suppose to be our 44th president of the United States of America........why do you think that is , yet it really gets under your skin that someone you think is a nothing , Sharron Angle , may or may not have used a decoy of her own.

Well this makes it convenient to explain all of the crazy talk and denials.
