Just yesterday I was complaining about how all of our politicians have been too quiet lately and I have been reduced to writing about celebrity gossip. I love pop culture, but I hate celebrity gossip. The problem is it has been the only news that has been different lately. Everything else is the same story from a year ago and it sucks as a blogger. Today I got a gift from G-d and I was lucky enough to have taken notice. Thank you G-d and thank you Raw Story for finding my salvation from celebrity gossip hell.

Florida Baptist Witness has been in publication since 1884 and is the weekly news journal of the Florida Baptist State Convention. The purpose of their newsletter is to provide “news and information about Southern Baptist ministries across the United States and around the world, as well as discussion of current issues of interest to all Christians.” Although probably not on the internet since 1884, they are now and they have an interview with the “Wicked Witch of the 2000 Election” herself: Rep Katherine Harris.

This interview has convinced me beyond any shadow of any possible doubt that she is not just the wrong choice for Florida, but she has larger plans that are bad for America. Just the name Katherine Harris gives me chills and I already know I will not be sleeping tonight because the interview had a photo, but sometimes one must do things to defend their country and exposing Katherine Harris is my duty.

It starts off as a very cliché election year interview. She talks about how perfect her record is and how no one else could beat Florida incumbent Bill Nelson this year. She describes Bill Nelson as left of Hillary so he cannot be the moderate he claims. Like I said, all expected and then came the bomb.

Being interviewed by the Florida Baptist Witness, I expected a religious slant, but she took the ball and just ran without looking back. It is almost as if she either forgets there are non-Christians in Florida or she just does not care about them: in fact, she outright brags about voting with the Christian Coalition and "other traditional values groups" 100% of the time. The Christian Coalition is only a small percent of Florida. As a Senator she will have to represent the entire state, not just those she feels deserve a voice.

She has no concept of the principles this government was founded on either and brags of that as well. 

If we are the ones not actively involved in electing those godly men and women and if people aren’t involved in helping godly men in getting elected than we’re going to have a nation of secular laws. That’s not what our founding fathers intended and that’s certainly isn’t what G-d intended.

The founding fathers provided us with a nice system of secular law and she speaks for the Almighty now? Is this really someone we want as a Senator? Don’t answer yet because it gets better, I mean worse.

How does she feel about gay marriage or cvil rights for gay people? “Civil rights have to do with individual rights and I don’t think they apply to the gay issues." Gay people are not individuals? "I have not supported gay marriage and I do not support any civil rights actions with regard to homosexuality.” Now that is just cold hearted evil even beyond the typical GOP standards. I can understand opposing gay marriage. I do not agree with that position, but I can understand it, but what is up with “I do not support any civil rights actions with regard to homosexuality”? Even the Republican position allows for civil rights. That is too extreme a viewpoint to give her a six-year job.

I do not believe she has plans to sit in the Senate for six years if she wins anyway. She lays out her plans very clearly at the end of the interview when asked why Baptists should care about the upcoming primary. “What happens in Florida sets the trend for what happens nationally… whoever wins Florida will win the presidency.” It seems she wants the presidency down the line and that is why she wants the Senate so badly.

We cannot allow her to fulfill her evil plan to transform America into a Fundamentalist Christian nation that looks down on the non-Christians. Again, from her own words:

“[W]henever we legislate sin and 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…”

As a non-Christian, I am personally offended by that remark. I hope everyone reads those words for what they are: elitist, bigoted crap. I am not opposed to Christianity at all and I actually have quite a bit of respect for the teachings of that faith. I only wish those who claim to follow it would have some respect for the teachings.

“If you’re not electing Christians then in essence you are going to legislate sin.” That statement is not only narrow-minded, but weird. Narrow-minded because she speaks as if only Christians have an understanding of sin and weird because I though "G-d is the one who chooses our rulers." That would mean G-d legislates sin.

She believes that if she loses, then they “will take western civilization, indeed other nations.” She is placing herself between the end of the world and Heaven I think. I am not really sure who "they" are, but it appears that one she can save us from "them".

She is so delusional that I actually fear her. I do not think she can win, but that does not mean she will not beat Bill Nelson. She has cheated in elections before and I will never place it below her to do again. In her mind, she could justify it as work in G-d’s name. “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.”

    The quotes you give of Ms. Harris are fucking disgusting. I live in DC and I don’t want her in my city.

  • http://counter-point.blogspot.com Scott

    I wouldn’t worry too much. Sure, Harris is nutty but she’s polling about 40 points behind Nelson and 40 points ahead of her primary opponents. As a resident Floridian, I can tell you firsthand that her candidacy is a joke and she’s going to be crushed in November.

    Katherine Harris is the epitome of a fervent Bush supporter. She, like W, believe that they are always right, even when they are wrong as they carry the message of the Man upstairs.
    I know of people who are waiting for the ‘Rapture’ and are thouroughly convinced that this president is the vehicle of G-D, this is why he can do no wrong. He is on a mission, being directed by the Almighty himself, to bring on Armageddon and open the gates of Hell.

    It’s pretty unsettling to listen to a person who has succumbed to his ‘power’ speak of him like he truly is the chosen, his word should never be contested and he must be allowed, unhindered to fulfull the prophesy.

    If you think that some misdirected kid going through puberty who’s been convinced that he’ll have 76 virgins servicing him if he kills himself is discomforting consider a nation within a nation (christians in U.S.) who believe that the end of the world is comming soon, to be ushered in, in whatever manner he sees fit by the president. But, you think, he’s obviously harmless, I mean, who in power would buy that? Well, Katherine Harris for starters. Remember her? She is the person most responsible for a president in office who is a few sandwiches short of a picnic. Do you also think that Billy Graham and all of the other snake handlers are not major powers?
    Be afraid!

  • Lumpy

    I’m not sure who’s scarier Katherine Harris or people like Peter J who think that end-of-the-world fundamentalists actually have any power or are taken seriously by anyone in the GOP.

  • Clavos

    Katherine Harris is the epitome of a fervent Bush supporter.

    Had you inserted the words “Fundamentalist Christian” after “fervent” in the above statement, I would agree with you.

    However, as you wrote it, it’s simply not accurate or true.

  • http://www.1bigdragon.blogspot.com Peter J

    You’re right Clavos but do you not believe that as a Fundamentalist Christian she is also a fervent Bush supporter?

  • Clavos

    No question she was a Bush supporter; remember she was GW’s state campaign chairman, and she worked for Jeb as Florida’s Secretary of State.

    However, I’m not sure she continues to support the brothers Bush; Jeb is emphatically NOT supporting her campaign. He asked her not to run (publicly, and more than once), and even publicly commented on her poor showing in the polls and the ineffectiveness of her campaign–all with GW’s backing.

    The Florida Republican Party is also not backing her campaign, and I believe she’s pretty much self-funded, with very little in the way of donations.

    After these slights and rejections, I’d be surprised if she’s still a Bush loyalist. I tried to research some recent information about this for this comment, but was unable to find anything relevant.

    NPR and The Florida league of Women Voters hosted a debate between the Republican candidates earlier this week, and Harris wasn’t invited.

  • http://www.roblogpolitics.blogspot.com RJ Elliott

    Dude, this chick is NOT going to win election to the US Senate. (She might not even win the primary!) And she SURE AS FUCK ain’t gonna become President…

    Bill Nelson is a decent Senator, for a Democrat. Sure, I’d like to see a Republican take his seat, but Kunterine Harris ain’t the person who is gonna do that…

  • http://kanrei.blogspot.com brad schader

    The thing that scares me about her is that she keeps winning when no one thinks she can. It is almost as if the machines are voting for her on their own (insert Twilight Zone theme here)

  • Clavos

    NPR and The Florida league of Women Voters hosted a debate

    That should have been PBS and The Florida League of Women Voters…Sorry!

  • Baronius

    I just read the interview, and didn’t get the impression that she has her eyes on the White House. She was saying that Florida is a pivotal state in presidential elections, so the Republican Party would be better off holding the Senate seat in 2008.

    That’s not to say the interview wasn’t wierd.

    One other thing. It’s possible to view gay marriage in terms of civil rights, but it’s also possible not to. Casting the debate as a matter of civil rights was tactically clever, but there’s nothing inherent in the American notion of civil rights that requires gay marriage.

  • http://kanrei.blogspot.com brad schader

    “Whoever wins Florida will win the presidency” probably means whichever party wins Florida, but with her you never really can be certain.

  • http://musical-guru.blogspot.com/ Michael J. West

    It’s possible to view gay marriage in terms of civil rights, but it’s also possible not to.

    But in Ms. Harris’s case, that’s a moot point. She doesn’t think gay marriage is a civil rights issue, but she doesn’t support things that ARE civil rights issues for gays either.

  • DazeyMai

    Awww, come on Florida – elect Katherine and put another thug in the White House.

  • Clavos

    Dazey, She’s running for Senator–they don’t usually get to live in the WH.

  • DazeyMai

    Now, Clavos…don’t be so nitpicky. I know Senators don’t live in the White House. I should have said “another thug in DC to be a part of the “W” Club.”

  • Clavos

    I know you do, Dazey–just ribbin’ ya.

    Hopefully, she won’t get to DC; but even if she does, it will be in spite of, not because of, the Bush brothers, as I mentioned in #7. I don’t think she’ll be part of the “W Club”, even if she gets there.

    Clavos

  • JR

    She’s already in D.C., as a member of the House.

  • Clavos

    I meant as a Senator, JR.

  • DazeyMai

    O.K., Clavos….it’s confession time. I did not know she was in the House of Reps. Shame on me! I should think the Bush Boys would be forever indebted to her for her role in putting George in the White House in 2000. Oh well, they are just dirty scoundrels and have no sense of loyalty. Remember how George dropped Ken Lay like a “hot potato” when the Enron illegal deeds came before the public (not that I blame him). I think he conveniently missed Lay’s funeral too and to think they had, at one time, exchanged Christmas gifts. Sigh!

  • http://www.1bigdragon.blogspot.com Peter J

    Clavos, I wasn’t aware of the PBS debate (I should be more aware, I will read it now) and I’ve always felt that Harris was a ding-bat but I wouldn’t underestimate her.
    As Brad #9 said “it was almost as though the machines were voting on their own.”

    Also remember that in 2ooo , as GW’s Fl campaign manager and brother Bubba’s Sexatary of State she somehow magically gained the power to stop the recount only several hour before it was completed !
    How the fuck did that happen. Could their have been more conflict of interest than that can of worms.
    How could she not have been removed from that capacity?
    She is very scary!

  • Clavos

    Peter J:

    Don’t bother looking–my bad: there WAS a debate, but I had a brainfart and mixed two different races together. Harris wasn’t invited because the debate was for the gubernatorial candidates. Sorry about that.

    I won’t swear to this, but I don’t think there was any magic involved in the recount thing–I THINK it’s one of the powers of the S of S.

    BTW, did you know that The Miami Herald (a liberal newspaper that does NOT support GWB) commissioned a recount which, to their chagrin, confirmed the official results?

  • Bliffle

    Harris is one of those ambiguous prudes who exudes blatant sexual messages while berating other peoples sexuality. In her case she prominently flourishes her (reputedly silcon-enhanced) breasts and cleavage. Isn’t that characteristic of a certain kind of neurosis arising from childhood abuse?

  • Clavos

    Geez, Bliff. I think she’s so ugly i didn’t even notice she’s got boobs–couldn’t get past the makeup.

  • http://www.roblogpolitics.blogspot.com RJ Elliott

    Oh, she’s got a scary looking face…but she’s thin and has a killer (and almost certainly “enhanced”) rack…

  • Peter J

    It’s the same ‘face’ that becomes the ‘masque’ of a psychologically distraut control freek. It appears strained and painful and it is so reflected in their actions.

  • http://dreadinmyskin.blogspot.com/ RicoPole

    It’s reading things like this that cause me to reconsider my rejection of all those ridiculous conspiracy theories. There was a time when I refused to believe that people like this really existed. I think I have to go buy some guns for when the theo-civil wars begin in the US.

  • Clavos

    I just checked out #30’s website. She’s advocating preventing out-of-state people from buying homes in Vermont.

    And she’s a Republican???

  • Clavos

    Baronius, Yes it is. It’s also a celebration of the Miami Herald’s winding up with egg on its face. Talk about joy!

  • http://www.diablog.us Dave Nalle

    Clavos, in Vermont everyone’s a socialist. The Republicans there are religious Socialists and the Democrats are atheist socialists. That’s the only difference.

    Personal attacks are NOT allowed, it says on your comment page. really?
    Using words like F-ck and talking about this woman’s face and “scary look” etc…Hmmmm
    not very convincing argumentation.
    Say what you will about this woman, at least she’s not afraid to say OR spell the word G-d.

  • anthem govender

    soory to say; you people have so much freedom, that you forgotten who helped you with freedom,true freedom is when you are not bond by this world to worship God in and through Jesus Christ. your freedom has become your G-d just as you put it in this article. with all the God fearing Children in the USA you and the rest of those that have the same mind like you have peace in your country, and God’s favour. try this Jesus Christ and exprience the Joy and Peace He gives you that the world don’t understand.

  • Joe Mama

    Aw c’mon, Florida…. Elect Harris and give bloggers something to write about. She needs to be kept in Washington with all the other crooks. We’re making enemies faster than we can kill them (I never thought I’d miss Nixon!). Put Harris in Washington so when Iran, North Korea, Pakistan (when it’s taken down with Iran), or ??? at long last, fires their nuke we can catch them all in one place… and send them all to wherever they will be going after this life. Leadership worldwide is at an all time low. Why should the U.S. be any better?

  • Bliffle

    I thought everyone in Vermont was an atheist libertarian. Well, that’s what my cousin claims.

  • http://www.rebeccawright.com Rebecca

    I don’t generally discuss politics, but I just wanted to say I live in Vermont and I am not a Socialist. Be careful not to paint with such a broad brush.

  • Nancy

    What did she do, buy or change the vote results to get herself into the House? Surely the people of FL are not so screwed up as to vote for this twisted sister?
