Harrassing Harris 

Katherine Harris' senate bid is blowing up like Marlon Brando on androstenedione...and it couldn't happen to a meaner person.


The last of U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris' key staffers appear ready to abandon her campaign for the U.S. Senate in a wave of resignations expected to start this weekend. Sources close to the campaign said Friday that the defections would touch virtually every level of her operation.

Harris, who is running against Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, is likely to lose her chief political strategist, her campaign manager, her spokeswoman, her director of field operations and even a traveling aide who helps hand out stickers at campaign appearances. It is the latest and most dramatic indication so far that her campaign is on the verge of collapse. "I've never seen staffers go like this," said David Johnson, a Republican pollster and consultant. "It's just imploding."

Hopefully, she spends the next six years in prison instead of the Senate.


This makes a little more sense... 

Now Jill Carroll recants on some of her statements, especially while a hostage (those had limited credibility), and even those right after her release...


Basically, she has her eyes open (the US policy in Iraq is rubbish), but still rightly chastises anyone who kidnaps...

In her statement Saturday, she condemned her captors, although she did not address the war in Iraq. "I will not engage in polemics. But let me be clear: I abhor all who kidnap and murder civilians, and my captors are clearly guilty of both crimes," she said.

She's seen the rampant deaths in Iraq, and seen firsthand the difference between the wishful thinking of Iraq welcoming the US with open arms and the reality of them kidnapping helpless female journalists.

Welcome home, Jill.
