You thought there was no humor in the U.S. Senate race.
You thought you were done hearing about chickens.
Well, you thought wrong.
The high-profile contest between U.S. Sen. Harry Reid and Sharron Angle has been getting a bit of comic treatment lately.
Last week, a Washington Post cartoonist made fun of Reid for his stand on a proposed mosque project two blocks from Ground Zero in New York City.
Take a look at it here.
Yes, the chicken is back, two months after Sue Lowden was defeated in the GOP primary after suggesting people could barter for health care as in the old days with fowl.
On the mosque issue, liberals called Reid a coward for saying Muslims had a First Amendment right to build, but shouldn’t because of 9/11 sensitivities.
As for Angle, she’s been mocked of late for reportedly suggesting in 1992 that a high school football team shouldn’t wear black jerseys because the color is evil. Angle and her son, who was on the Tonopah High team at the time, say they don’t remember anything like that. The story surfaced in a former newspaper editor’s column, based on his own recollections, and is now part of the Reid campaign’s greatest hits on Angle.
Comedy Central’s "Indecision" has taken notice. It posted on its website eight photos of Angle wearing black "evil" clothing, including a pant suit and a leather jacket.
