10:00 AM -- The Urban Dictionary has added a new term to its lexicon: Katherine Harris Crazy. Definition:

    (n.) As insanely optimistic as Congresswoman Katherine Harris. Usually characterized by an overly optimistic estimation of someone's chances of achieving success.

    Did you hear Jim just bought 500 dollars in lottery tickets? That boy is Katherine Harris crazy if he thinks he's going to hit the jackpot.


Suggested synonyms include: insane, ridiculous, unlikely, and optimistic.

UD is being uncharacteristically kind here, I think. Here's some real Katherine Harris crazy, courtesy of The Washington Post:

    "If you're not electing Christians, then in essence you are going to legislate sin," Harris told interviewers from the Florida Baptist Witness...

    Harris told the journalists "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.

    "And if we are the ones not actively involved in electing those godly men and women," then "we're going to have a nation of secular laws. That's not what our Founding Fathers intended, and that certainly isn't what God intended."

She was Grendel's mother in a previous life, I believe.

LOL. I guess that would mean Dubya was Grendel in a previous life. But sadly, there's no Beowolf.

Glad to hear she won her primary race.
"It's a great victory because it shows each of us we can overcome adversity to achieve extraordinary victories," Harris said.
Adversity -- like total batshit insanity.
No impediment in the Sunshine State.

"And if we are the ones not actively involved in electing those godly men and women," then "we're going to have a nation of secular laws. That's not what our Founding Fathers intended, and that certainly isn't what God intended."

Really?

"...an amendment was proposed by inserting the words, 'Jesus Christ...the holy author of our religion,' which was rejected 'By a great majority in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and the Mohammedan, the Hindoo and the Infidel of every denomination.'" - Thomas Jefferson

"During almost fifteen centuries has the legal establishment of Christianity been on trial. What have been its fruits? More or less in all places, pride and indolence in the Clergy, ignorance and servility in the laity; in both, superstition, bigotry and persecution."

"What influence, in fact, have ecclesiastical establishments had on society? In some instances they have been seen to erect a spiritual tyranny on the ruins of the civil authority; on many instances they have been seen upholding the thrones of political tyranny; in no instance have they been the guardians of the liberties of the people. Rulers who wish to subvert the public liberty may have found an established clergy convenient auxiliaries. A just government, instituted to secure and perpetuate it, needs them not." -and-
"Religion and government will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together." - James Madison

John Adams signed the Treaty of Tripoli (June 7, 1797). Article 11 states:
"The government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion."

The misquoting and misrepresentation founders on...

It's not crazy.

Louis XIV would have had similar thoughts. Not sure I am ready to return to the Great Chain of Being.
