Katherine Harris Shakes Her Boobies On Hannity & Colmes
Reported by Ellen - August 10, 2005
It was a Hannity & Colmes segment (8/9/05) ostensibly about her just-announced candidacy for the US Senate but Katherine Harris (the Cruella De Vil of the 2000 election) kept shaking her over-sized chest so often throughout the interview that I couldn't help but conclude that what she really wanted the audience to check out was something other than her politics.
Alan Colmes started off the interview by bringing up the fact that many Republican leaders have been less than enthusiastic about her candidacy. Referring to the White House and Jeb Bush, Colmes began "they've not yet come forward with the kind of support..."
Harris, who stood sideways to the camera (the better to show off her - uh, profile?) interrupted to say (wigglingly) "Actually, they have."
Actually, they haven't. According to yesterday's Washington Post, "The White House and some Republican leaders have tried to recruit other party candidates to run against Harris this time, fearing her polarizing role in the 2000 election would alienate moderate voters. But no other Republican has entered the race."
Colmes continued to press her on this issue, asking if she had received any assurances from the White House that they would support her even if there's a primary.
Harris tried to wriggle out of it saying, "We're in this race to stay... We look forward to their support. I'm certain that when we're the nominee, we'll get it."
But, Colmes pointed out, that meant she had not not received either the White House's or Jeb Bush's backing.
Thrusting her chest forward and twitching her shoulders like an aging sex kitten, Harris gave what must have been her most inviting smile when she said, "We look so much forward to talking about the issues... It's all about listening... It's not about appearances. It's about effectiveness."
Right. And if the guys won't back you on your record, it's about using whatever tools you have.
