My Favorite Sharron Angle Quote

In case you were unaware, Sharron Angle is the GOP challenger running against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.  In today's political climate, you would think that Senator Reid is in deep "stuff", as Nevada isn't exactly Berkley, and "Reid" is synonymous with "Pelosi" in many corners.  That noted, Senator Reid has a damn good chance of winning re-election for one simple reason:  Sharron Angle is a nut.  She is insane.  She is so far out of the mainstream of American thought that Iranian Ayatollah's probably hear what she has to say and think "damn, we're liberals compared to her".  Now the Internet is full of Sharron Angle gaffes, but I have to admit I have a favorite, which I've pasted below for your reading pleasure:

"And these programs that you mentioned -- that Obama has going with Reid and Pelosi pushing them forward -- are all entitlement programs built to make government our God. And that’s really what’s happening in this country is a violation of the First Commandment. We have become a country entrenched in idolatry, and that idolatry is the dependency upon our government. We’re supposed to depend upon God for our protection and our provision and for our daily bread, not for our government."
(quote found in various sources, including HERE)

Yes, you got that right:  the federal government providing an Access card to a poor family is apparently a form of idolatry.  By Ms Angle's logic, isn't the U.S. Military also a form of idolatry, as can't God provide for our national defense as well?

God help us if this lunatic actually wins in November.
