“I guarantee that I can talk most anything to death.” – Sharron Angle as she notes that even freshmen senators can filibuster the Corruptocrat Reid agenda. Help FIRE HARRY REID

One of Harry Reid’s primary arguments against Sharron Angle is that replacing him would cost the state of Nevada, because a freshman Senator wouldn’t have anywhere near the clout to deliver the amounts of Federal cash the majority leader has.

Now Angle has developed a pushback against this argument: She says she would have clout if elected — because lone Senators have the power to filibuster legislation. And she’s pledging to filibuster the Dem agenda “to death.”

Angle made the claim during an event before a friendly crowd of 200 or so Republicans, reports the Las Vegas Review Journal:

Angle said that as a junior senator she could wield power by joining Republicans to block tax hikes, excess regulation and spending bills, and Supreme Court nominees who don’t meet a strict constitutional test, including Elena Kagan.

“There are certain things that can be done just by your junior senator,” Angle said, explaining that even if Republicans remain in the minority after 2010, she could filibuster, which allows lone lawmakers to delay legislation through lengthy debate.

“I guarantee that I can talk most anything to death.”
