Here's to you, Mrs. Robinson

Katherine Harris, the Florida congresswoman who is well-known for her role in the 2000 Bush-Gore recount when she was Florida's secretary of state, is running for U.S. Senate there.

According to this blog, she really went out of her way to convince a college newspaper reporter that she has the right stuff for the job, as it were.

"[Harris] took him by the hand and led him over to the bar and said she wanted to have a 'nuclear' conversation with him...and wanted to 'talk about nuclear technology.' Then she led him back to the table and sat him down, sat next to him, and her foot was brushing against his foot, her knee was half-an-inch away, she leaned in real close and started calling him 'honey.'"

To paraphrase Lloyd Bentsen: Katherine Harris, you're no Anne Bancroft.
