MSNBC host & former Florida Republican congressman Joe Scarbrough is thinking about challenging Katherine Harris in the 2006 Republican primary for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Bill Nelson. Apparently, Elizabeth Dole is doing her best to recruit Scarbrough, along with most of the national Republican establishment and the party bigwigs in the Florida Republican Party. Everybody's spooked by Harris, including horses grazing in nearby fields.
Just before announcing her bid for the Senate, Harris accused the "liberal" media of making her look more clownish during the 2000 balloting recount controversy. She said "some newspapers" had colorized her photographs, without specifying which ones.
But last week she made a delicious spectacle out of herself, turning a pointed profile on "Hannity & Colmes" and simpering like a mall-cruising teenager. "Did you notice her platforms?" asked a wicked Jon Stewart on "The Daily Show."
