Katherine Harris on the measure of a man

A report from the end times.

From the "Katherine Harris Death Watch" Department, the St. Petersburg Times -- beamed into War Room via Wonkette -- checks in with a report on the faltering candidate's interview with a local TV station Wednesday. Asked whether she still believed, as she used to allege, that newspapers doctored photographs of her during the 2000 Florida recount, the woman who would be senator declared: "I haven't worn blue eye shadow since 7th grade, and some of those photographs had me in blue eye shadow.''

But would newspaper editors really Photoshop pictures to make Harris look more made up? "I just question why there was blue eye shadow," she said. "But it doesn't matter. Why are we talking about this? Kathy, that's so silly. Because people care about the issues. If the media wants to talk about appearances that's different, but I'm not going to talk about it. That's demeaning to women ... They don't talk about men's balding or their weight, or their diminutive size."


Diminutive size? Like Wonkette, we're in no position to opine on the length of any planks incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson might be proposing. That said, Harris' main man certainly has been known to pack a bulge.
