Jean still looks good, even after lunch.

Well Jean's still holding her strong lead over at Wonkette. But we can't take anything for granted! So make sure you check our comments in support of her candidacy over at Wonkette.
Oh, we forgot to also remind everyone what Jean once said about Elizabeth Dole, way back in 1984, when Liddy was Transpo Sec and wanted make all the states raise the drinking age to 21 via a highway dollar extortion scheme. Jean said:
"I hate that woman," she told the reporter. "I just can't stand her. Anyone who wants to force an increase in the drinking age to 21. ... She can send our boys off to fight wars when they're 17 and 18 but won't let them drink till they're 21."
She added, "That stinks."
We submit that anyone who wants to light Liddy deserves a chance to scratch Katty Harris! Granted, Jean did (1) later attribute these remarks to her Evil Twin and (2) suggest that this Hill hitpiece was just a political attack on her from Dennis Kucinich's sister.
But doesn't that just make her all the more cat-tastic?
Vote for Jean!
UPDATE: An asute reader observes that Jean's closest competition in the Catfight is an old frenemy of hers, Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO). He's the anti-immigration guy (which makes no sense if you think about it, with an name like Tancredo. It ends in a vowel, for pete's sake!) who Jean claimed had endorsed her. Well, when Tomcat Tancredo found out about it, he had his peeps call Jean's campaign office and demand that she remove the endorsement announcement from her website.
She was sitting in Congress with you Tom, so FYI, that was a really bitchy thing to do. It would have been much more appropriate to pretend you had endorsed her all along.
Of course, this all led to the hearing before the Ohio Elections Commission, after COAST accused Jean of making false claims during the course of an election campaign. And that created a lot of fodder for the campaign of former Congressman Bob McEwen.
Well, now Jean's beating you 3-1 in the Congressional Catfight contest, Tom. In this case, it looks like payback, quite literally, is a bitch. So who's sorry now?
