Katherine Harris on Katherine Harris

Katherine Harris has a very well-deserved reputation for volatility, amazingly self-serving assessments of events, and an extremist Christian perspective on life, politics, and the murky overlap between the two.

Here are a few select quotes illustrating how Katherine feels about Katherine's life and lot therein:

I can remember riding my bike to piano lessons and thinking about Israel.  I thought I was adopted for a while.
Katherine Harris, quoted in the Washington Post, describing her inexplicable attraction to Israel, even as a child.

Calvary Chapel in Sarasota is my base. I was raised in a godly family: my grandfather was a missionary in Africa and my aunt and uncle were missionaries in India and now they head up Arab World Missions. I accepted Christ at the age of eight after watching the Billy Graham film Run Baby Run. My brother-in-law, Wes King, is an award-winning Christian singer. My faith was greatly impacted by studying under Dr. Francis Schaeffer at L'Abri and remains the most important part of my life.
Katherine Harris, answering the question "Are you involved in a local place of worship? If so, in what way?" in an interview with the Florida Baptist Witness.
If a man had followed the law in the exact same way I had (during the 2000 presidential vote recount in Florida), they would hardly have been discussing their clothes or their makeup. The men during the recount that were going on TV had on far more makeup than I have ever thought about wearing
