Has anyone else noted the prolific number of conservative nutcases that have been spouting off in the media of late? I am actually tempted to pick up a copy of Anne Cunter... sorry... Ann Coulter's Godless just to read further into the woman's insanity. Know your enemy and all that. My current favorite, however, just came from good ol' Katherine Harris.

Y'all remember Ms. Harris don't ya? Florida's Secy of State during the 2000 Presidential election? The one who did all she could to completely fuck over Democrats so that Dumbya could take the state and thereby win the election? That stellar example of public servant who was subsequently elected to the House of Representatives wherein she still resides today?

At least, it seems, until the election in November? :)

Here be the skinny.

Harris apparently told the Florida Baptist Witness (some flake-o paper from down yonder) that separation of church and state is "a lie we have been told", a lie that is "wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers."


But my favorite little gem that she came up with during this particular eruption of "oh my god, did she really just say that" was this:

"If you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin."

Wha? Come again?

Thank you, Kathy. Thank you for handing your seat to the Democratic party. Seems what goes around really does come around.

Then again, it's really no surprise that Harris said these things. After all, she's a quintessential right-wing party-liner; anti-gay, anti-abortion, pro-gun, pro-death penalty, and probably closet anti-Semitic. But these statements take her a bit beyond the pale even for her fellow conservative mush-heads, methinks. Calling the election of non-Christians "a legislative sin" might be a bit... extreme?

Then again, when it comes to legislative sin, Harris would know more than I would. After all, she's under investigation for the 30 grand she took in illegal campaign contributions from defense contractors. Funny how these religious bigots are so good at remembering all the Seven Deadlies except GREED, no?

"I'd've gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling kids and your intellectual elitism."

Kathy secretly rubs her bean to:

Milt Jackson & John Coltrane - Bags & Trane
