Reid Done Phishing, How About A Debate?

Harry Reid's campaign took down its spoofing and phishing fake Sharron Angle website, after the Angle campaign threatened legal action.

Contrary to the spin put out by the Reid campaign and its sympathizers, the threatened legal action was not just because the Reid campaign merely quoted Angle’s positions, but the fact that the fake website misled viewers and obtained names and email addresses of Angle supporters under false pretenses.

But now the website is back up, without the spoofing and phishing.

Now that the Reid campaign is done phishing, can it find the time to schedule Reid for a debate with Angle?

Or is Reid still too busy for the next several months?

If Sharron Angle really is a "mental patient" (as noted plagiarist Mike Barnacle at MSNBC claims), and so extreme (as the Reid campaign claims), then Reid should be jumping at the chance to debate Angle.

Instead, Reid is hiding in his bunker (to use the verbiage of the Reid campaign).

How about a debate?

What is Harry Reid afraid of? Being made to look bad by an "extreme" "mental patient"?

Update: Politico notes the major changes the Reid campaign was forced to make:

The website was relaunched with some major modifications. Angle’s likeness and campaign logos are gone, and an e-mail submission feature is no longer there. The website is a bare-bones version of Angle’s issue statements on her previous website with some pictures, a biography and endorsements.

An attorney for the Angle campaign, Cleta Mitchell, said the matter is “much less of a concern now” that Nevada Democrats have “redone” it so that only Angle’s public statements on the site.

  1. I still don't understand how it's a bad thing to post the candidate's own words?

  2. @Chris Gerrib - Is that a serious question, or are you just trolling? You can't create a spoofed website which tricks people into thinking it is something it is not, and then phish for names and e-mail addresses. Angle has been quoted thousands of times without a complaint, but the Reid campaign went too far with the fake website.

  3. Yes it is serious. First, did you think for a minute that it was really Sharon Angle's website? Second, as I explained in a previous thread, the web form probably sent the volunteer information to whatever address Angle's campaign is using. Third, the email form is now down, as you clearly state.

    So, I ask again, what is wrong with Reid posting the candidate's own words?

  4. I see that the Reid people are pulling out all the stops to destroy her and keep the offensive on. This is to keep the attention off Reid's horrific voting record. So I did the best thing you can do against Reid and the Liberal Progressives: I sent Angle some money today.

  5. Yeah, come on Harry- you have so much to offer, get up there and debate! (/s)

    We all want to hear about how you got in bed with the drug company lobbyists who are funding your ads, how you and Obama failed to close the Yucca Mountain nuclear waste site, how your failed policies created the highest unemployment rate in the nation for your state, why you hung up on an AP reporter asking simple questions about your personally crooked land deals, what your brilliant strategy will be for saving social security, and so much more. Don't be shy.
