Ken keeps warning me to stop telling Floridians that Katherine Harris has crossed the boundary into full-fledged insanity. He claims she might lose the primary, making it more difficult for Democratic corporate whore Bill Nelson to win. I don't care that much if Bill Nelson wins or not. He sucks. And the few Floridians planning on voting for Harris are voting for her because she's as insane and out-of-touch with reality as they are. She will win the Republican primary-- and they nurtured this base so they deserve her-- and then she will be beaten by Nelson by over 20 points, perhaps even 30 or more!

No news there, right? Right. But there is some Crazy Kathy news today. As I've mentioned before, her "campaign" has devolved into a religionist revival tent show. There is virtually no other organized groups of Republicans that will have her-- just the ones waiting for 40 virgins in Heaven or whatever our homegrown brand of religionist psychotics believes in. And she knows how to play to these folks, her folks.

Yesterday she told the Florida Baptist Witness that the separation of church and state is a fallacy. "We have to have the faithful in government and over time," the deranged Harris spouted, "that lie we have been told, the separation of church and state, people have internalized, thinking that they needed to avoid politics and that is so wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers." Didn't Bush say something like that? But I thought it was a certain highly dishonest-- some would say treasonous-- Florida Secretary of State who chose Bush. Maybe, among all her other problems, she now thinks she's God.

Her "campaign" has come under the control of a shady "evangelical" character, her own personal Rasputin, and they have seen to have given up on conventional politics. Instead of talking about political matters, Harris tells her audience she's on her way to meet the Lord... "Because I loved your son and because I know he died for my sins. I know he was resurrected at your right hand and I served him. You know, we're covered with, our sins are covered with his blood and so we are blameless before him. We are as white as snow."

So Ken, no worries-- at this point, them's who are for her ain't changing their minds and them's who ain't, ain't. Does anyone think this is going to sway anyone's vote? Oh, and by the way, are there gay Republicans (other than Mark Foley) and Republican Jews in Florida?

But the real issue is why should Baptists care, why should people care? If you are not electing Christians, tried and true, under public scrutiny and pressure, if you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin. They can legislate sin. They can say that abortion is all right. They can vote to sustain gay marriage. And that will take Western civilization, indeed other nations because people look to our country as one nation as under God, and whenever we legislate sin and we say abortion is permissible and we say gay unions are permissible, then average citizens who are not Christians, because they don't know better, we are leading them astray and it's wrong.


OK, let's see if we can figure out what Krazy Katherine Harris is saying now. Hard to tell the way she manages to get both feet-- and an elbow-- in her mouth. Apparently when Jews went as ballistic as I predicted they would-- I mean who cares about gays but she said Jews were unfit to serve in Congress-- she tried backing down from her comments and said... Not sure what she said. She said it was ok because it was just for a Baptist audience (so presumably she thinks tailoring major pronouncements like this depending on who's listening is what Floridians are looking for in a senator). OK. And she also seems to be excusing her unbelievable bigotry by saying she's pro-Israel and believes the Holocaust happened. Bill Nelson is a really bad senator. Why should he be blessed with the worst turkey in a party filled with turkeys as his opponent?

WOW! Sounds just like the typical Right wing fundamentalist nonsense. She's a perfect fit for Bush. We know he was chosen by God to lead us in this time of Tribulations. Or something like that. She's just taking her cues from Beloved Leader. She can't help it if she's a whack job.

I'd say we should pity her but she deserves a special place in Hell(if there really was one).

There you go again, Howie, being mean to America's Sweetheart. It's just attack, attack, attack! What ever happened to the old maxim, "If you can't say something nice about a person, don't say anything at all"?

For instance, back in November 2000, when Florida voters had so much trouble getting it right, didn't somebody have to take action to make sure God's candidate got installed in the White House?

And even now, okay, maybe she is nuttier than a pecan pie, but ask yourself: Has anyone done as much for the American makeup industry since the heyday of Tammy Faye Bakker? I'll bet at least some of that glop is still made in the good old U.S. of A.
