Someone Needs To Know When To Fold ‘Em

The Florida GOP has told Katherine Harris in no uncertain terms that she has an ice-cream cone’s chance in hell of winning the Florida Senate race. Polling has shown that she’s an incredible 37 points behind Bill Nelson, virtually guaranteeing that short of Bill Nelson having a Mel Gibson moment, he’ll beat her like a rented mule.

Harris’s quixotic campaign makes no sense. The national party won’t lift a finger for her since anything they spend in Florida will be wasted. The state party has already told her to get stuffed. She will lose, and when she does her political future is toast. I have a tough time believing that anyone could be so deluded as to believe this campaign is anything but a political suicide run, but then again I probably shouldn’t underestimate the power of willfully blind ambition.

In any event, Harris has brought this all upon herself. Her political future will end because she wouldn’t listen to good advice. A good politician, like a good general, never fights a battle they know they will lose – and clearly Rep. Harris is not a good politician. What’s worse is that against a better challenger, Nelson could be beat, but Harris seems intend on taking a potential GOP seat pickup with her.

  1. Harris is the kind of Republican opponent that makes even the most secular Democrats believe there is indeed a God. There are two other Republicans that must be damn happy that Harris is still in the race so they can lay claim to at least one GOP Senate candidate making more of an ass of herself than they repeatedly do…..Conrad Burns and Rick Santorum.

  2. I think she needs to stay in for the sole purpose of my entertainment. The Texas Governor’s race is a distant second to this one in terms of pure entertainment value.
