Fear and Loathing in Longboat Key - Widow's Mite Edition

Poor little Katherine Harris. Due to lagging fundraising, lack of GOP support, and her ever-delightful stage presence, she has been forced to donate $10 million of her own stash to finance her pathetic campaign. She went on Nightline last night to remind us all that $10 million is simply a widow's mite.

"I am willing to take this widow's mite, this pearl of great price, and put everything on the line," she told Donvan.

As an astute Wonkette operative points out, a widow's mite is "the small amount of money that a widow put in the alms tray, which Jesus said was worth more than a great amount given by a rich man."

She's the queen of diamonds playing the pity card. It would take the average Florida voter about 250 years to earn a widow's mite that hefty, so you can certainly see why she deserves our sympathy and support. Also she and her husband own all kinds of real estate and other fancy do-dads, putting her remaining wealth at up to $39 million.

So please pray for Katherine, and ask your friends and family to pray as well, so she can continue to put extravagant seven course dinners and expensive french wine on her table and blue eye shadow on her eyelids.

    And make sure we also pray for Kathrine that she never has to go to the Florida media again... She's been blowing them off regularly and I'm fine with that. She can appeal to a national audience while she misses out on dealing with the Florida audience that will have to vote.
