Thanks Joy Behar!: Sharron Angle raises another $136,000 today.

Last night about this time, I reported that Sharron Angle’s campaign had a “major fundraising surge,” having raised $137,000 for the say.  The campaign saw a big upswing in donations after The View co-host Joy Behar said of Angle on national television, “She’s going to hell, this bitch!

By the time the day ended, the campaign reported that Angle had cleared $150,000 for the day. So this morning, the angle campaign sent flowers and a thank you note to Behar, which prompted another charming response from Behar – “I would like to point out that those flowers were picked by illegal immigrants and they’re not voting for you, bitch.” (Yes, one would hope illegal immigrants are not in fact voting, as it is against the law.)

I just spoke to the Angle campaign and it’s another great day, having raised $136,000 more. In fact, the campaign is almost exactly where they were yesterday at this time. The Angle campaign is no doubt hard at work thinking of new and creative ways to annoy Behar.
