Harris Throws in Her Hat and Reveals an Just How Deep the Ugliness Goes

Katherine "blue eye shadow" Harris kicked off her comedy tour today.

"What I really wanted to say is I only trail (incumbent Bill Nelson)
by an eyelash, but I know what you guys would do to me," joked Florida's
former secretary of state, whose makeup became fodder for late night
comics suggesting she overdid it.


Funny how an 8 to 16 percentage point lead is an eyelash in a Senate race, but a fraudulent supposed .004 percentage point lead in a presidential election is a mandate.

The Republican congresswoman from Sarasota recounted her childhood in
Bartow, "keeping in touch with my girlfriends, dreaming about the big
dance, and hoping we would be asked. And of course that was all back in
the time when blue eye shadow was quite fashionable."


Now who would you rather have as a Senator? Bill Nelson, who works tirelessly trying to keep the Bush Administration from destroying Florida's coastline or someone who spends all her time putting on blue eye shadow.

    I always thought she was going for older hooker chic. Now I know it is a unique look for Bartow. Of course, I can't complain, I grew up in Jersey in the 80s. Not exactly a time of great fashion.

    She's obviously not one for change.

    I'm so glad to see her gone!!
