Blast from the Past: Katherine Harris

I'll never forget how devastated I was when Gore "lost" the election in 2000. As if having my home state Governor become our nation's President wasn't depressing enough, the icing on the cake was watching while then Florida Secretary of State Katherine "Harlot" Harris certified the election results even though not all of the votes had been counted. She is really one skanky gal...

Her reprehensible actions sure did pay off. Only two years later, she won a seat in Congress representing Florida's 13th Congressional District, anchored in Sarasota. The voters must be total (Republican) morons there. And boy did she do a good job at making them proud, especially with photo ops like this one:

Apparently being a Congresswoman wasn't enough for this premadonna, so in 2006 she chose to run for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator Bill Nelson. Her campaign announcement was really amazing.

Needless to say, her campaign went nowhere, and she got trounced by Senator Nelson 60% to 38%...what a loser! But that didn't stop her from passing out her business cards to her former colleagues on the House floor in one last ditch effort of shameless self-promotion...
