Katherine Harris: Always Entertaining

"Harris tells Christian group she believes God wants her in public service"

That's the headline at Palm Beach Post.com and really all you need to know. Everyone knows that when their campaigns need a shot in the arm, Republicans pull out the "god told me to run" shtick. But this is Katherine Harris. She's always good for going that extra mile...

She said that, as a young woman, she was inspired by the movie The Last of the Mohicans because "people were willing to die for something bigger than themselves."

Harris also was moved by the Lord of Rings movies, saying they, too, suggest that sometimes your mission in life is bigger than the individual.
First: the movie The Last of the Mohicans - not the book - inspired her as a young woman. Ok, so we know she doesn't read. Common Republican attribute. Let's get back to the 'young woman' part. The movie came out in 1992. The upper limit for 'young woman' is what, 28? Harris was born April 5, 1957. In 1992 she was 35. Thirty five is not a young woman. It's certainly not the age where a woman should first be inspired by a movie that it's possible to "die for something bigger than themselves."

All due respect to women who are 35, but you shouldn't be making earth shattering discoveries about yourself or human nature by sitting in the movie theater watching blockbusters.
