Harris Explains What She Meant

Stepford Senate candidate Katherine Harris attempted to “clarify” what she meant last week when she told the Florida Baptist Witness that separation of church and state was a lie and that God decides who gets elected. Here’s her explanation:

Harris’ campaign released a statement Saturday saying she had been “speaking to a Christian audience, addressing a common misperception that people of faith should not be actively involved in government.”

The comments reflected “her deep grounding in Judeo-Christian values,” the statement said, adding that Harris had previously supported pro-Israel legislation and legislation recognizing the Holocaust.

Translation: “I meant every word of it, but you weren’t supposed to see it. And I really, really like Jews.” Well that explains it all.

    She didn’t specifically name Romans 13 as her source. Does that make her guilty of plagiarism?

    since when did the non-apology apology become acceptable?

    Yeah, what’s with the “deep grounding in Judeo-Christian values” bit? Probably didn’t want to alienate the Jewish community until it was time to exterminate them.

    Sooo, either she thinks the christians are too stupid to know what she really meant, or the secularists are? I’m confused.

    No I am not, I know a power hungry sociopathic liar when I hear one. How’s this, Harris: “ya reap what you sow.”

    Dang, mark, that’s harsh, but probably true. They did, after all, supposedly kill some guy that the romans executed.

    In other words, Jew-friendly legislation is fine, so long as it’s Christians who legislate it.
