Nevada Grandma Knocks Reid In Her Own Obituary
Last words of an Everywoman.

Sadly, it is too late for any of us to meet Charlotte McCourt. The Nevada grandmother passed away this week at the age of 84 after a long illness. But it is not too late for Charlotte to tell everyone exactly how she feels.
An excerpt from her obituary, placed in the Las Vegas Review Journal Tuesday, reads:
As John Smith of the Review Journal points out, this kind of thing makes an impact, not because McCourt "was a political player or business powerbroker, but precisely because she was neither of those things. She was a homemaker, proud mother and grand mother and wife of 67 years to Patrick McCourt."
I'm sure the obituary will result in a lot of tsk-tsking from Democrats about how it's unseemly to use an obituary to score political points, but it's a little late for Democrats to get too picky about exactly how voters engage in the political process from beyond the grave, isn't it?
And, McCourt is making more sense in her obituary than the DNC is, with all its faculties:
Angle's appalling statement?
In other shocking news, Angle, who is a Christian, believes God has a plan for her life, is present in it, and guides her in decisions big and small, including on the campaign trail.
The DNC is set to release a statement revealing another outrageous, religious belief of Angle's: "I let Jesus Christ into my life. I learned that my sins could be redeemed and that if I placed my trust in Christ, that he could set me on the path to eternal life when I submitted myself to his will and I dedicated myself to discovering his truth and carrying out his works."
Just kidding. That's from a Barack Obama speech. Remember what a crazy Jesus freak the press thought he was?
