Harris want people to Stop Comparing her to Stalin
Saturday, July 29, 2006
(SNN Tampa) Congresswoman Katherine Harris has demanded an apology from Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean for comparing her to Stalin.
In a speech to Democratic business leaders in West Palm Beach, Dean said Bill Nelson would "beat the pants off Katherine Harris, who didn't understand that it is ethically improper to be the chairman of a campaign and count the votes at the same time. This is not Russia and she is not Stalin."
However, after hearing the statement that Dean made, it is quite obvious that Dean merely made two true observations. West Palm Beach is not Russian. Katherine Harris is not Stalin.
Some say that Harris should have welcomed the clarification, as she is often confused with Stalin. This came to a head in the 2003 edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica, where Harris's picture was used in place of Stalin's. However, Harris has had much less trouble with this issue since shaving her moustache.
