The Gift the GOP keeps giving

Katherine Harris, she who crowned King Bush and who is running woefully behind in the polls in her attempt to unseat Florida Senator Bill Nelson, speaks truthiness to her wing of the GOP:
If you are not electing Christians, tried and true, under public scrutiny and pressure, if you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin," she told interviewers, citing abortion and gay marriage as two examples of that sin.

"Whenever we legislate sin," she said, "and we 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 . . ."

Harris also said the separation of church and state is a "lie we have been told" to keep religious people out of politics.

In reality, she said, "we have to have the faithful in government" because that is God's will. Separating religion and politics is "so wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers," she said.

Ms. Harris, "God" is about "to choose" Bill Nelson. And, for the record, I believe that it was you and the Supreme Court who chose George Bush the first time around.
