Sharron Angle may not be talking to journalists, but she's got jokes. In the past day, she's sent Joy Behar flowers to thank Behar for calling her a bitch and launched a Monopoly-inspired game to mock Harry Reid on immigration.

Behar had said of Angle's racist campaign ads, "I'd like to see her do this ad in the South Bronx. Come here, bitch. Come to New York and do it. I'm not praying for her. She's going to hell. She's going to hell, this bitch." Angle raised $150,000 on it and sent Behar flowers and a note, which Behar read on the air yesterday.

"I don't know if it's a sense of humor, but I'd like to point out those flowers were picked by illegal immigrants," said Behar. "And they aren't voting for you, bitch."

Unfortunately, they aren't voting for anyone, at least not with our current broken immigration system. And Angle is still betting that Latino citizens don't matter as much as the racist vote.

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she

With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
