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.
