Check out this truly frightening video of Katherine Harris talking about her plan to run for the Senate in Florida. Harris is a bit of an easy mark, it's true, but whereas in 2000 whe came off as merely stupid and partisan, this performance shows something completely new and far more disturbing.
I don't know exactly how to describe it, but her bodily affect is just massively weird. It's something like what you'd expect from a homely college girl, three drinks brave and coming onto the captain of the football team in a bar. She's kinda moving back and forth, standing at an angle so you can get a good sense of the rack, speaking in nonsequitors that are aimed at conveying confidence but actually communicate the opposite. "Unprofessional" doesn't begint to capture the deep weirdness of the thing -- it's even weirder than the Novak incident last week.
