Katherine Harris is nuts, and a porn star tells it like it is.

Two jewels from the essential Crooks & Liars....

First we have Katherine Harris.

When last we checked in on Mrs. Harris, there was great speculation as to whether she'd withdraw from her disastrous campaign for the Senate. Beset by a huge entanglement with the same defense contractor convicted of fraud in the Duke Cunningham case and Republicans running from her campaign like rats from a sinking ship, Harris was expected to bow out.

Well, she didn't. But it's almost worth it, just to have THIS CLIP of her appearance with Sean Insannity. It is quite possibly the most bizarre political statement I've seen for a long time. Is she making a political statement, or trying to seduce Hannity? The woman is a posterchild for phony, vapid, unqualified country club Republicanism which holds that all you need to run is a ton of money and some name recognition. (Of course, that line of thought isn't limited to just Republicans, unfortunately.)

She committed fraud and got Bush in office for which she was promised a big career in politics. They installed her as congresswoman, and then she actually believed her own hype, got a little ambitious, and now wants to be a Senator. Ooooops. Now the Republicans are abandoning her, but that won't stop her.
As she says in this intensely weird statement, she's risking it all, all the millions her Dad left her, to buy this seat for herself.
Poor, poor Katherine! Abandoned by the people who promised to reward her for doing what she was told to do, including Jeb Bush who it was an open esecret she was having an affair with, and now forced to... sniff... spend her own millions on a campaign. Risking it all. Going for broke. Or as she puts it, risky "everything I have". If you don't vote for me, she tries to suggest, I'll be penniless.

There's only one problem with that lie. Her husband is worth an estimated 25 million dollars, and she's not touching a penny of HIS dough, just blowing her inheritance from her extremely wealthy dad.

Guess it beats giving it to worthy charities and changing the lives of thousands.

Truly one of the strangest and ickiest campaign moments of the year so far.

And click here to watch prolific porn star, candidate for governor of California (Arnold won, damn it.), and Republican wanna-be, Mary Carey, who was lobbed a softball by Joe "Deliverance" Scarborough" on his show and gave an honest answer, but probably not the one the pig-eyed host expected.

Katherine Harris is evil to the core. Most people know that fact except the silly voters who put her into office......

Ms. Dope, keep up the good work in informing us about the outrageous Ms. Harris. I'm almost ready to temporarily move to Florida to work for her opponent. She's bad news, through and through.
