And it’s not just because of all that make-up she wears. Harris is a wannabe, evangelical version of Ahmadinejad, and I’m not being hyperbolic —
Six weeks after urging voters to elect only "tried and true" Christians, Senate candidate Katherine Harris is questioning her opponent’s faith by saying he "votes completely contrary" to Christian principles.
In an interview published by a Christian news service, Harris said incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson "claims to be a Christian" but supports policies "completely contrary to what we say we believe."
Who’s we? Dobson, Falwell, Hannity …
He (Nelson) has served as chairman and vice chairman of the National Prayer Breakfast and, when in Washington, attends weekly prayer breakfasts with other elected officials. When he flew on the space shuttle in 1986, he took a Bible with him.
Nelson issued a statement this week, saying, "My faith is the essence of my being. But it is a part of my life I don’t feel I should try to take advantage of in the public square."
Truth be told, Harris says what many on the fundamentalist right really believe but are too politcally savvy to say out loud.
Harris said that God did not intend for the United States to be a "nation of secular laws" and that failure to elect "tried and true" Christians would allow lawmakers "to legislate sin."
She also said "God is the one who chooses our rulers" and suggested non-Christians "don’t know better."
When reached for comment, God said he couldn’t talk because he was too busy vomiting. A spokesman confirmed the Almighty would work to raise prices on rouge and eyeliner to get back at "that Harris bitch."
(The good news: the Dragon Lady has no shot at winning, trailing by as many as 30 points in some polls. Maybe Floridians aren’t as stupid as we assume.)
