Sorry for the language, but what a fucking embarassment:
Officials in Indiana and Washington, D.C., said they are dumbfounded by a statement U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris made about a terrorist plot to blow up a power grid in Indiana.
In making the statement during a speech to 600 people Monday night in Venice, Harris either shared a closely held secret or passed along second-hand information as fact.
WTF? It gets better:
She said in the speech that a man of Middle Eastern heritage had been arrested in the plot and that explosives were found in his home in Carmel, a suburb north of Indianapolis.
Harris, a Republican from Longboat Key who is running for re-election, said the case was an example of the nation’s success in fighting terrorism.
A helping of overt racism to go with your bullshit sandwich?
He said that making such statements without providing specific details to back them up “only serves to erode public confidence” in the credibility of government.
A spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security would not comment Tuesday on Harris’ statements.
Probably because it is DHS policy not to call sitting Congressmen “stupid assholes.”
You know- it is stupid half-wits like this that let shit-heels like Howard Dean claim Republicans are exploiting terrorism for partisan gain.
Don’t let the door hit you in the ass, Kathy. And I really don’t want to lose the House, but you are just in over your head, dear- one Patty Murray on Capitol Hill is enough.
