Katherine Harris in the House

Former Rep. Katherine Harris, R-Sarasota, whose efforts to unseat Sen. Bill Nelson turned her (once more) into a political punch line and embarassed the Republican party, made a guest appearance Tuesday on the House floor for President Bush's State of the Union address.

The Sarasota Republican hugged former colleagues and watched Bush's speech amid a coterie of Florida Republicans.

She wasn't the only former member of the House from Florida to make the rounds. Also spotted: former Pensacola Rep. Joe Scarborough, who turned down pleas of fellow Republicans to jump into the Senate race.

Harris invited new Sarasota Rep. Vern Buchanan over to her Washington home for dinner. He declined, saying he was off to dinner with Sen. Mel Martinez and his wife, Kitty.

Heard and Verified: Vern was neither invited to dinner nor did he turn down an invitation from Harris. As a courtesy, she invited him him to stop by her home after the State of the Union with several other members of Congress to which he responded that he and his wife would like to come by.

Dinner??? After 10:30 PM State of the Union and Senator Martinez' press interviews??? Right...
