It seems that she just won't go away. And it's gone from sort of humorous to downright wrong.
Apparently, Katherine Harris, Citizen, is still parking her fly ride -- a BMW, wouldn't you know -- on Capitol Hill, in her old parking place. Um, doesn't Vern Buchanan, the mouth-breathing yokel that somehow managed to wrangle her old job, need to park there? I'm just sayin'. It's totally a legit question.
Look, I'm not one of these goofy, livin'-in-my-momma's-basement nerds who has nothing better to do than complain all the live-long day about where my tax dollars go. But even I don't much appreciate the notion that Kitty Harris, of all people, is still roaming the Capitol and that I and every other decent taxpaying American is footing the bill for her free parking spot. Not cool.
Memo to Kitty: you lost an election, babe. And you lost it real bad. And everyone knows you're not real keen on things like "laws" or "elections," but this one was pretty irrefutable. Now, I think you and Anders ought to get on a boat and perhaps sail off to Sweden, or wherever it is he's from. You're clearly not welcome in Florida anymore (not that you seem to interested in spending any time here), and staying in Washington is just not cool. At least not on my dime it's not.
More disturbing news on the Kitty Harris front! Turns out that the Longboat Key Kiwanis Club has named her "Citizen of the Year." Read the story on TBO here:link.
The reasoning, just when you thought there could be no possible reason:
"She stood in the storm and held her own there for a while" during the 2000 presidential election recount. This from club president Kelly Kary. "We see her as a definite asset to our key."
Right. An "asset." "Held her own." Honestly Kiwanis Club people -- all the folks you could've named as "Citizen of the Year," and this is who you come up with. Seven years after the fact, by your reasoning. Truly, I am at a loss.
Thanks to Wonkette, too.
