Thief of golden toys to an upset time away

Republican Congresswoman Katherine Harris, who was out for stardom as Florida's secretary of state in 2000's steamy, deviant political sex thriller presidential recount is finally making a real bid to convince America that she is a competent candidate for US Senate and a lawmaker with a wise and reasoned grasp of law and constitutional issues. From cnn.com

I don't really resent that quote as a Jew or even as a reasonable human being who values equality and tolerance. I resent that quote because I was a much happier, naive human being before I knew that James Madison, Thomas Jefferson and the other thinkers who developed the constitutional and philosophical structure of our country were actually feeding us a bold and salty dose of pre-Orwell Orwellian doublespeak. Do these godless, wig-wearing, blaspheming pornographers mock us so? But they did own slaves, so, uh, one plus for you founding fathers.


OK, try this: Look at the picture of Katharine Harris below:

Separation of church and state is "a lie we have been told," Harris said in the interview, published Thursday, saying separating religion and politics is "wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers...If you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin."

Now look at this:
Ok, good.

-In other news, take a look at this Italo Disco lyrics site. When people who don't speak English transcribe the English lyrics of songs written by non-English speakers, it is truly a thing to behold. The main site also contains a special section for Croatian fans of Italo. Word.

P.S. I used to like the 2 fonts, 2 authors thing we had going, but blogger's formatting issues are making me crazy. Straight Arial from here on out, dun.
