Freak Show Double Feature

It's just another day in the 24-hour news cycle with two complete and total freaks dominating the "headlines."

First up: The Boulder DA is dropping its murder charges against the self-confessed killer of JonBenet Ramsey, John Mark Karr. (A. Why are you running around telling everyone you did it? and B. Why is the DA going around charging someone with no evidence?). (CNN)

Meantime, the nutjob who handed George Bush the 2000 election on a silver-plated bible, Katherine Harris, is pulling out all of the predictable stops in an attempt to reignite her pathetic run for the U.S. Senate: Harris told a religious journal that separation of church and state is "a lie" and God and the nation's founding fathers did not intend the country be "a nation of secular laws." She also said that if Christians are not elected, politicians will "legislate sin," including abortion and gay marriage. (AP)

"god is the one who chooses our rulers?" Did Katherine Harris skip 4th grade history where we all learned about that whole revolutionary war we fought to break away from the whole monarchy system? Republicans make me so cranky.
