Katherine Harris’ chances to win Florida Senate Seat have gotten pretty low and she has said an announcement regarding her future in the race is coming in a few days. How low are her chances? Put it this way, they have become so low they have dipped beneath Bush’s approval rating. I cannot help mentioning George W. Bush in any article about Katherine Harris, since she was instrumental in ending any chances of a complete manual recount of Florida’s votes for President in 2000 ensuring that George W. Bush was selected President.

Harris’ campaign took a turn for the worst when allegations were reported she took thousands in illegal contributions from a defense contractor who had also bribed a California congressman. Harris released a statement acknowledging the rumors and allegations and promising to make a major statement regarding the future of her campaign in the coming days. The statement concluded with “I will continue to look to our founding fathers…to discern the best course of action for the state of Florida and our nation." This makes sense because even though the founding fathers passed away around 200 years ago, Harris’ face resembles what theirs would likely look like if you exhumed them. Perhaps Harris meant to say, “I will continue to look LIKE our founding fathers…” who knows? One thing is certain; it is a good thing that founding fathers like Washington, Jefferson and Franklin were not alive to see what Katherine Harris did in 2000 to the election process in Florida. I would hate to see such wonderful people crying.

As for Katherine, alas, she has nothing to fear. I cannot imagine that either George or Jeb would allow her to rot in jail for very long seeing as how much the Bush family owes her. Being a Republican good ole boy or girl who can rely on pardons or being appointed to boards with cushy six or seven figure salaries by serving the interests of the wealthy and powerful must be a wonderful thing if you can get over little old things like a conscience, or any sort of empathy for those with less money or power. The “little people” as Leona Helmsley called them. Clearly, Harris has no problem getting over such mundane insignificant things. The good thing for the people of Florida and the Nation is that we won’t have to worry about Katherine Harris polluting the political process. It looks like her poisonous career is finally over.
