Katherine Harris Update:  Seeing Eye Dog & Standing Ovation

 

Undaunted by a run of horrific poll numbers, staff turmoil and public doubts from leaders of her party, U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris is thinking confidently beyond November.

Once Harris wins her race for a U.S. Senate seat, she said, she plans to travel everywhere with a Seeing Eye dog...

..."She acted exactly the way the Republicans wanted her to act," said Stanley Tate, a Miami businessman who serves as her campaign's finance chairman. Tate said he was "completely confused" by the party establishment's snubbing of Harris. He tells of a recent Republican dinner in Miami where Harris received a standing ovation from the crowd yet was not acknowledged in a speech by Gov. Bush

The Empire State building is referred to simply as 'tall office building.' And as for the Statue of Liberty, the Department of Homeland Security has recently classified her as 'a giant, green water whore.'" --Jon Stewart

Republican Priorities

 

One of the most egregious examples of abuse that came to light last year during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina was displaced people and other victims spending their government-issued debit cards on Louis Vuitton purses and other luxury goods...It reads, quite simply, “None of the funds made available to the Federal Emergency Management Agency in this act may be used to purchase a Louis Vuitton handbag.”
