Note the photo in the upper right - Harris helping a 6 year old vote in a straw poll that she then touts as her winning 54% to 45%

4. Of course, the 6 year old might be smart enough to have not voted for her

5. "now if you were a little boy, I'd let you see my implanted bosom"
Instead, I'll just write in your vote for you.

13. That's what I thought, too
I thought that it is a satire. But it really seems to be her website. It's so dumb that it's hard to believe that this is really true. She must be really crazy...

14. We need people running for political office to pass some sort
of competency exam before they can be allowed to run! Of course, then who would we laugh at?

She is a freakin' lunatic.

15. I toss around crazy alot when talking about Repub but damn she
is just off the wall nuts. Someone needs to force feed her the meds in the morning or something.

What's next? An internal poll of her staff that shows she will get 60% of their votes? :)

17. I toss around crazy when talking about lots of folks, but this is
the real deal. She surely must have some sort of mental illness.

I think her next move is to just come out and declare herself Senator Pneumatic Sweater Puppies(R)

19. Grasping at Straw Polls ... stuffing the ballot box like she stuffs a bra
Deplorable. The low-lifes we have in politics today are what causes recalls of leafy vegetables.
