Team Angle on tape: Shows she is “blunt, plain spoken” leader: Team Reid: “supreme hypocrisy” by trying to make deal

Here's what spokesman Jarrod Agen said in response to the revelation of that tape of the Sharron Angle-Scott Ashjian meeting:

"Sharron expressed what many working families in Nevada and across the country are feeling. They are angry with Harry Reid, they are angry with Washington DC, and they want blunt plain-spoken leaders who are willing to shake things up. Sharron represents the interests of Nevada, not the interests of Washington DC like Harry Reid does, and that's why she is going to win."

Not surprisingly, Team Reid called the tape a "bombshell" and put out a memo that read in part:

"Sharron Angle engaged in an act of supreme hypocrisy (even for her) during their secret meeting – attempting to cut a deal with Ashjian to get him off the ballot, and openly trashing the very same national Republicans that are supporting her candidacy."

This one may have legs....
