Katherine Harris is Off Her Meds Again

Support for Katherine Harris is so universal — according to Katherine Harris — that even Democratic lawmakers from Florida have told her they hope she beats Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson.

…According to the Palatka Daily News, Harris said, “I’ve had Democrats in the House of Representatives come to me and say, ‘You know, we’d really like to take the majority in the U.S. Senate’ — these are Florida Democrats in the U.S. Congress — ‘but you’ll do so much more for us if you’re there.’ ”

Somebody call Rush Limbaugh and have him bring her over some of the good stuff

Harris said one Democrat — “one of the most liberal House members from Florida” — even offered her a slogan to use in her race against Nelson: “All about nothing for far too long.”

The problem is, none of the allegedly plural Democratic congresspeople in Washington are backing up Harris.

…all seven House Democrats from Florida told the Orlando Sentinel they never expressed any support for Harris. Responses from two — Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Alcee Hastings — were typical.

“That would be a big ‘No,’ ” Wasserman Schultz said.

“Under no circumstances, in any way, shape or form am I supporting Katherine Harris, nor do I know anybody in the delegation who is.”

“I can assure you, Congressman Hastings is 110 percent committed to the re-election of Bill Nelson,” Hastings’ spokesman said.

“He wishes Katherine Harris well in her life as a private citizen next year.”

Harris’ current beleaguered spokesperson (she goes through them like water) says his boss is too principled to expose her supporters.

Her former campaign manager says she’s just wacked.

[Spokesman Chris] Ingram said Harris was “taking the high road” by protecting their identity. He did not respond to an e-mail asking for the names of others who might corroborate Harris’ account.

The episode creates for voters a rare moment of political clarity: Either some Florida Democrats are hiding something and actually told Harris they want her to win, or Harris is making up the whole thing.

Former Harris campaign manager Jim Dornan is convinced Harris invented the story.

Dornan said she told her senior staff the same thing last year. But she would not name names.

“I just figured it had never happened,” said Dornan, who has become a critic of Harris since leaving the campaign late last year.

“It was all too weird.”

Katherine has obviously forgotten to refill her prescription. Somebody call Rush Limbaugh and have him bring her over some of the good stuff.

    She doesn’t have the excuse most have. She can AFFORD her meds, unlike MANY Americans she wants to represent.

    …and since when has our “American Nobility” needed an excuse for aberrational behavior?….
    …Perhaps we should consult with Barbara-Of-The-Fine-Mind Bush, you know “Da BIG Mama” of the “kinky-king in da white outhouse…..

    I think she gets her meds from Rush Limburger’s doctor.

    You forget, she used to be a Bush insider. She is used to calling fantasy truth and being backed up by the press and everyone else. She probably wonders why it stopped working.

    Bush still does it, and gets by with it often as does Karl.

    “Katherine has obviously forgotten to refill her prescription. Somebody call Rush Limbaugh and have him bring her over some of the good stuff.” Good God, I just got an image of Harris on Viagra. Yuck!

    I have to agree with Peter. Could’ve been a really good Democratic “dirty trick.” Remember, both parties are into dirty tricks. The difference is that Republican tricks are nasty, mean-spirited and harmful, while Democrats tend more toward “fun” stuff like this. She is pretty gullible, after all!

    Another Repuglican insider is going out making speaches without first getting someone to either coach her or stage the news so it looks good in print.

    I also agree with Peter, she was too dense to realize she had been insulted. Or the other possibility is that she simply misunderstood one or two words: the Dems in question said “We want you to RUN for the Senate, because you can do us so much good in that way, by ensuring that Nelson is re-elected.” Or something to that effect. That’d be my speculation on the exchange.

    IMHO, Kathy (I’ve read so much about her that I feel I know her well enough to use her first name) is cracking up under the harsh realization of how cruelly she was used in the 2000 election, and how harshly she is being thrown away by those she thought were her “friends”.

    Also IMO, she is a former Repugnican “babe” who used to be able to use her “charms” (the left one and the right one) to get what she wanted out of some people, but now sees that she is too superannuated to work on that level any more.

    One could almost feel sorry for her, if she were not such a thoroughly repugnant grotesque.

    So let her run for the Senate – she’s the best thing that could happen for Nelson.

    Typical wingnut-doesn’t know irony when she’s slapped in the horseface with it.
