Down With Tyranny has kept a close watch on Katherine Harris' rapidly deteriorating mental state. I think the turning point for her-- when she went from garden variety right-wing fruitcake to dangerously deranged psychotic was after she replaced her third campaign staff with some kind of quasi-religionist cult figure, her own personal Rasputin and decided to move away from a traditional political campaign and launch a kind of pseudo-religionist crusade.

According to Pensito Review the deranged congresswoman went off the deep end as she watched her ill-advised race against Bill Nelson completely unravel and her polling numbers fall even below George Bush's... almost as low as Dick Cheney's! Crazy Kathy, however, has processed her political demise as the roar of the crowd and the smell of the greasepaint.

She made up an absurd story (originally just for herself-- but then started believing it and, worse, started repeating it to members of the press). In Crazy Kathy's warped and delusional mind, everybody loves her and even liberal Democrats have pledged fealty to her highness.

She told the Palatka Daily News "I've had Democrats in the House of Representatives come to me and say, 'You know, we'd really like to take the majority in the U.S. Senate'-- these are Florida Democrats in the U.S. Congress-- 'but you'll do so much more for us if you're there.'"

The entire Florida Democratic caucus denies that any of them ever said anything remotely like this to her. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, for example, when approached for a comment, scoffed. "Under no circumstances, in any way, shape or form am I supporting Katherine Harris, nor do I know anybody in the delegation who is." Similarly, a spokesperson for Alcee Hastings said "I can assure you, Congressman Hastings is 110 percent committed to the re-election of Bill Nelson...He wishes Katherine Harris well in her life as a private citizen next year."

One of her own former campaign managers, Republican Jim Dornan, has confided to friends and acquaintances (and random people he meets at street lights) that Harris has lost her marbles. "I just figured it had never happened... It was all too weird."

Theories to explain Harris' erratic and unpredictable behavior range from "she forgot to take her medicine" to "she's been getting some strong stuff from her pal Rush Limbaugh." How lucky is Bill Nelson?

I read her comments yesterday online and the only thing I can figure is that she is actually losing touch with reality and should be in a psychiatric institution. She needs serious help and with any luck Bill O'Reilly and Ann Coulter will be joining her as well.

I agree with Scott, it appears that she has lost touch with reality and is listening to the little voices in here head. Someone trying to lose couldn't have done better. And about the picture? That face looks like it was made up by a particularly heavy-handed undertaker.

I think that not only is Katherine Harris the ideal Republican candidate for the Florida Senate seat, but she should be out campaigning for Republicans statewide, or throughout the Southeast, or even the country.

I think she should always remind people that she's the person who put George W. Bush in the White House, and for more of that kind of moxie and enterprise and vision, voters everywhere need to vote for her and her fellow party members.

I tell you, this woman is a national treasure. If she were properly guided, she could actually go a long way toward salvaging this country . . . from the damage she played such a vital role in inflicting.

I like to think it's karma. We had the prospects of a fine president (& not so fine VP) until she so practively meddled with democracy. But at least it would have been better than 100% psycho VP and Preznit.
