BEST GIFT TO POLITICAL WRITERS, PART 1: U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris

We have no doubt that the darling of Florida’s GOP know-nothing wing has been treated unfairly by the media and Democratic haters. She was, after all, a moderate — if not wealthy — little state senator before hitting the big time as George W. Bush’s personal savior. But now Katherine Harris is parodying herself in her role as the best ditz running for the U.S. Senate. Her appearance on Fox News Channel’s Hannity & Colmes on the kickoff of her campaign was priceless, as she angled back and forth on camera, smiling and posing like a wired topless dancer. You gotta see the video, online at www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,165301,00.html.
