Well, if the Florida Marlins can be in playoff contention after starting 11-31, anything is possible.

Let me get this straight...none of Harris' Republican opponents could beat her, yet somehow her winning means Nelson is going to have an easier time of winning? I'm missing the logic...

if there is any.

I was opposed to her getting in this Senate race from the very beginning. She carries way too much negative baggage. She should have stuck with her safe House Seat.

Does this mean you're going to sit home and not vote for her?

There is none. I don't know anything about this Florida race, but I do know that everyone is out to get her, and that, in of itself, is a reason for me to root for her.

What exactly is her negative baggage, other than the Demoncrats and the drive-by-media hates her? Just curious.

There are plenty of people HERE who hate her.

You know, the "real, true" conservatives that FR seems to be flush with.

Good luck to Katherine Harris. This lady deserves it. She is a good conservative and --Lord knows--Florida needs a conservative in Congress.

It should also be noted that the Marlins have never won their division, each time they won the world series, they were the wild card!

And if they win it this year, they will have won the world series more then any other team in the last ten years.

We have a chance to gain a Republican Senate seat. She's the Republican candidate.

W and Jeb need to now get behind her. There's no excuses, since W has supported Joe Lieberman, not a Republican and Lincoln Chaffee, who also is not a Republican.

We need 60 in the Senate. Then dirty Harry Reid can have apoplexy.

"This campaign will go down in history as one of the most disastrous ever run in the United States," declared Jim Dornan, who helped launch Harris' bid as her campaign manager but left three months later.

Hope that is not the case... She can do it with all our support and less complaining with the defeatist attitudes...

The MSM talk about Bush's malaphorisms....

Wait until Nelson has to debate Harris.

Nelson can't put a thought together even if he had Kennedy's speech writers.

Now that she has the nomination, I suspect the whole GOP machine will (hopefully) get behind her and help her win.

LOL. Of course, the "real true conservatives" (e.g., the panty-waist liberals pretending to be conservatives) would hate her.

Yes, the Countryclub Republicans think that her mentioning religion means she'll lose the election since it's so tacky to mention religion.

Lots of folks down in Florida do not live in million dollar condos in Dade or nearby counties though.

And one more thing....

Nelson is not so bright that he can say stupid things like Biden and sound like he knows his subject!

We need a Nelson top 10 list...

But, Letterman doesn't do stupid on democrats.

IMO, the national party messed over Harris six years ago when they failed to defend her against the onslaught of criticism when she was just doing her job. They allowed her to be labeled a party hack and drove her negatives up. Now what other issues she has are magnified and only reinforce the negatives her own party allowed to accumulate.

Now I just heard that our Miami Dolphins is scheduled to meet the Steelers on Thursday. But because the Steelers are the World Champion, the Dolphins has decided to stay home, because they don't stand a chance to win!!!

I see this as a Alan Keyes type situation. The general election will not be pretty. I don't see why some here see a certain loss as something worth celebrating.

Well, there's one bright spot in today's news:

At least we now know KH will be able to spend fulltime in Florida for the coming campaign against Nelson, since the Calderon forces no longer need her help for counting votes over in Mexico!

Darn straight! They better NOW get behind her, and not just posing for the cameras type of support either. I mean they (the RNC) better seriously get behind her!

I've wondered if they did that on purpose so she WOULDN'T look like a party hack.

If she were a true hack and had REALLY swung the election, would'nt the party stand behind her? (If she were a Dem they would).

So, the party not standing behind her actually lends credibility to her, IMHO.

She doesn't need good luck. She still has the secret codes for the Diebold voting machines. She also has the secret road blocks that get set up in front of black voting stations.
Its in the bag.
