You Can't Make This Stuff Up ...

There are 22 daily newspapers in Florida. All 22 have endorsed Democrat Bill Nelson for re-election to the U.S. Senate.

The lone newspaper to endorse Republican Katherine Harris is the Polk County Democrat, a non-daily in Harris’ childhood home of Bartow. She trails Nelson by a sizeable margin in recent polls.

Democrats aren't shedding any tears for Harris, who played a controversial role, to say the least, in the 2000 election of President Bush.

Nelson could have been hooked up to a heroin IV for a year and still defeated Katherine Harris in this race.

She's going to be trounced, and I hope her dismal showing drags down the entire GOP ticket in Florida.

This race is not stealable. I repeat this race is not stealable.

If Harris wins then I promise to take seriously all of the Diebold conspiracy theories people have been spewing.

Controversial role? I guess in the eyes of donks controversial means doing your job.

Controversial in terms of a conflict of interest. Harris was Bush's Florida chairwoman, and the person responsible for determining who won in Florida.

Some of her decisions were overturned by the Florida Supreme Court. But in an unprecedented case, the U.S. Supreme Court -- issuing a decision that it said could not be used as a precedent -- overturned the Florida Supreme Court decision.

By definition, Mr. Donks, that would have to be considered "controversial."

Feel free to consult a dictionary or continue to post your grammar questions here. We liberals are always will to help out the needy among us.

David, if the point you are making is that the MSM leans for the most part way to the left in their political beliefs, conservatives are already very aware of that fact. ;)

Ah Trinity, always there with the spin points.

How about this: Harris is a wack-job, and everyone in Florida knows it. The newspapers are reflecting the opinions in their communities.

What choice did the SCOTUS really have, rob? In their efforts to help elect Gore, the Florida Supreme Court was rewriting Florida election law from the bench, thereby putting the SCOTUS in the impossibly unenviable position of having to smack a rogue court back into place.

SCOTUS couldn't allow a statewide hand count of undervotes without adopting some sort of state-wide standard for counting those votes. The way the Florida Supreme Court wanted to do it, they were exempting Gore-friendly counties from having to abide by the reasonable and objective standards it was outlining for the other counties.

What Gore did in the 2000 election was a disgrace, and set a horrible standard for future close races in other states. What a debacle.
