pander watch: florida

As Congresswoman Katherine Harris falls further and further behind in her Senate race (after news of her dealings with corrupt defense contractor MZM Inc. broke), it looks as though she’s being forced further and further toward the extreme right. A few days ago, Harris had the gall to tell the “Florida Baptist Witness” newspaper that the separation of church and state is “a lie”, and that God and our founding fathers never intended for America to be a country governed by “secular laws.” She then went on to further enflame her paranoid and xenophobic neoconservative base by stating unequivocally that electing non-Christians is a “legislative sin”… And this, my friends, is what desperation smells like. (It should be noted that the Bush brothers, having gotten what they wanted out of Harris, have cast her aside like an easy frathouse conquest.)

    The last that I heard, Katherine Harris had vowed to invest all of her money – $10 million – in this Senate campaign. (She, by the way, inherrited it.)

    As I understand it, she’s the Republican candidate but the national Republican party isn’t giving her a dime. They couldn’t find anyone to run against her in the primary and they don’t think she has a shot in hell of winning.

    Karma is a beautiful thing. She betrayed the trust of the people of Florida. Now, she, in turn, is betrayed. I love it.
